RE: [DML] Re: New Delorean



FYI:  The new DMCH site has an order form for the new car.

If you think the sticker price for the base car at $57.5K is shocking, With
all options selected it will be over $72k for a "complete" package.

Speaking of the target audience that the car is being marketed to, I have
seen quite a few comments both in the DeLorean community and the general
public about "sticker shock" and unaffordability. I have Hagerty car
insurance on my D and they actually have loan programs for classic cars,
people who intend to spend 50K and more that go for 8,9, even 10 years long.
I'm wondering if DMCH has any kind of plans to help (read: inform) people
with incomes that might be slightly out of the 57K plus range? It has been
my experience that most DeLorean owners are average "blue collar" workers
who may not have the kind of cash flow to just drop 50 big ones in one buy.
I know when I bought my car (even realizing I didn't spend anywhere close to
57K) that I had to finance the car for several years and worked my tail off
to get it paid. At the time I really wasn't making enough to warrant
purchasing my car, but it was my dream to own one so I made it happen.  I'm
thinking if they put some kind of information like that with their press
releases or on their site, etc, it might help encourage some who might be on
the fence on the issue of buying/not buying a D. Just a thought...
