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



When I first purchased my Delorean I need to buy some parts.  Not being familiar with most of the vendors out there, I shopped around for prices, and one of the places I called was Delorean One.  They refused to quote me a price on parts, and instead said "You aren't the kind of customer we're looking for".  They are looking for customers that will blindly hand over any amount of money they ask for.

So in a nutshell, in less than five minutes I knew what Delorean One was all about, and learned  that if price is any concern to you, Delorean one would consider you to not be the type of customer they are looking for.

There are plenty of other (great) vendors, with much better business practices and customer service than Delorean One.

            Hi all. Just got finished with my last DMC fiasco and wanted some 

advice...



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.
