[DML] Re: Seeking sell suggestions

When I sold my second DeLorean I advertised it through Collector Car
Trader Online and the DMC News website. The only thing I got from the
Collector Car Trader site was tire kickers and dreamers. I got no
serious interest out of my car at all until I slashed the price by
25%, then everyone and their brother was knocking my door down and
waving cash at me. And I was only asking $20k originally for my car
(ended up just unloading it for $15k)... a car that had documented
well over $20k in receipts alone. All I can say is good luck trying to
sell your car at that price. I don't think anybody is going to pay
that kind of a premium for a second hand refurb car. They can spend a
few grand more and get the "new car" experience for themselves. People
who are looking in that particular price bracket for a DeLorean are
not the typical DeLorean buyer. If you knocked an additional $10k off
the price you STILL might have a tough time. Take a look at the DMC
News Buy and Sell section and look at how long the cars that are
priced above $26k or so have been on there. DeLorean's aren't easy
sells let me tell you! You'd probably do better to hold on to the car
a little longer and knock of some more negative equity (if that is
even an option for you).
