[DML] Re: stage II



Yes, I did and yes, I sold it. For what I spent on the turbo kit and
all the work to install it, I was disappointed that it did NOT
increase it's value as much as I thought it should. It reenforced my
belief that you are probably better off keeping the car as origional
as possible as far as it's value is concerned. Buyers will not pay
much if anything extra for "improvements" like the turbos, alarms,
remote starts, door openers, fancy radios, etc. Of course this will
not stop people from customizing their cars. Just don't expect a
potential buyer to appreciate it and pay extra for it when the day
comes and you decide to sell. Those things are for YOUR enjoyment ONLY
and you will not get your money back. For investment purposes your
money is best spent keeping it as close to origional as possible and
if you DO modify the car try to only do things that can be undone
without leaving a trace. Of course there are always exceptions.
Generally anything done to improve reliability or safety (as long as
they are not too obvious) should not take away from the value but
don't expect them to increase it either. A buyer expects he is buying
a car that runs reliably and safely! This is not specific to
Deloreans, it applies to just about any collector car. I never said I
was against modifying Deloreans, I only point out the disadvantages of
doing so.
