[DML] Painted VS Stainless



Interesting comment Ron..  :)

This is the exact reason I have been so outspoken
about the attitude that surrounds the Concours
competition.

When you have people declaring with self-appointed
authority that a "Concours Delorean" is the "best of
the best" and is therefore worth more, it continues to
devalue a delorean that is PERCEIVED to be modified in
any way (Just because the car does not match the
manual does not make it modified).

Why is it that with so many DeLoreans running around,
so few are in Concours if these cars have more value? 
Based on the breakdown, I'd say the daily drivers are
more desirable.  It is just that an owner of a
concours winner wont sell as low as the rest of us.

Based on the number of peoples choice awards your
Yellow DeLorean has won, I'd think it would have a
higher value that a "concours" car..  but, if you put
it on Ebay no one is going to bid 40K for it because
of the self fulfilling prophecy that modified cars are
worth less.

Say it enough, and it becomes true.
