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



I tend to agree with the majority of what I'm hearing from the group
on this topic. I'm only 27, and my car is 25, so I figure in car
years- that's bound to demand some fixing-up! And again. And...again.
*grr* But I figure, it a very unique vehicle, worthy of a little more
care and attention than most other old cars. Mine, having only 87K
miles or so, has a few irritating problems. Since I have to work full
time and can't afford college anyway, the DeLorean is almost like
having a kid for me. But hey, she's worth it. [There's probably
sometime down the road when I'll end up having a big family that needs
some sort of gas guzzling SUV- but that's why they (almost) invented
the DMC-80 bus lol I'm obsessed] Seriously though, if you really love
the car but remember it's "just a car," read up on the basic
maintenance/repair, chat and befriend other nice DeLorean owners, and
just plain enjoy driving the darned old thing, well it's honestly a
fun experience IMHO. No air-conditioning, deformed lower link arms,
shaky steering, OEM alternator...I can't begin to describe the
paranoia I feel about breaking down- er I mean, uh, the fun! Yeah the
fun, driving it. And stuff. Even if it doesn't always make girls look.
:) The people I know are a cool bunch as well. Very friendly. As I
told my dad, "This car may be kind of a piece of junk, but it's MY
piece of junk!" And honestly, it feels great to say that.

Even when...Mustangs pass me or something. Sulk, scowl. hahaha joking
it's all good
