Re: [DML] The dreaded question, NO FLAMES PLEASE...

Ya know, Marc, I didn't expect any particular kind of answer from the 
Delorean group. The very few people that own one that I've been able 
to talk to have been very open and honest about Delorean ownership. 
They tell me what to watch out for, where to get parts, generally 
very glad to share information about the car. The devoted following 
is one of the reasons I am considering ownership - there must be 
something there for the cars to last so long and have third-party 
companies willing to maintain and manufacture parts for the vehicle. 
Your answer was very helpful - it, along with the other posts, made 
me realize I want a UNIQUE car, not another cookie-cutter Benz or 
Toyota. I know not to drive it in ice & snow, but I wouldn't do that 
in a Boxster, either. I've bought nothing but family vehicles for 22 
years; mini-vans, sedans, SUVs, cars so dented I don't care if I 
leave them in an airport for a month (and I did!). I would like a car 
for ME, and just one other person, highly impractical for a family 
man if you know what I mean. Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it.
