Re: [DML] My DMC is a financial hole - what should I do at this point

You were robbed by DeLorean One.  As with anything, knowledge is power.  DeLorean One is not the greatest option unless you like giving money away.  I'm assuming you got the usual chat from Ed: "Don't take your car anywhere else.  If you care about your car, you'll let us repair it. Blah blah blah..."  It's all bogus.  You'll find better prices, more reasonable repairs, and super nice people here:
For the amount Ed charged you, you could have a pristine, ready-to-drive DeLorean.
I've been reading your posts lately, and most of them are the typical new-owner questions to which you'll find easy answers by searching the archives.  You need to do your homework.  Read the site, cover to cover.  Good luck with your car, and if you question the cost of any repair, or would like to know your options, you can ask us here!

Subject: [DML] My DMC is a financial hole - what should I do at this point
Hi all. Just got finished with my last DMC fiasco and wanted some 

I bought a 1981 with 12,000 miles on it for $14,000 (I know now that 
the millages is obviously wrong) from the cars second owner. The car 
was advertised as "excellent condition" etc. I took it for a test 
drive and bought it.

Well, to make a long story short within 2 months I had to pay Delorean 
One Motors of Los Angeles, CA almost $20,000 for repairs. The car was 
a chop job and all the major systems and components had to be 
replaced. I've just spent another $3,000 in repairs for more things 
that popped up and now I have a fuel system issue. I haven't even 
begun to refurb the interior (I want to replace the seats and carpet).

I don't see the car as a financial investment; I just love and enjoy 
owning and driving it. I'm just sick of every day a new problem 
popping up and don't know when to call it quits as far as putting 
money in it.
