[DML] Re: My Delorean for sale



I have to differ on the Vette,back in February 1985 I bought a Nice 
Silver(or gray,whichever way you want to look at it) Vette,and being 
the "new generation" Vette,it positivly attracted TOO MUCH 
attention,everywhere I stopped people would clammer all over it,and 
when I opened the clamshell hood,(or the spinning headlights,or the 
LCD DASH)people thought it was "so exotic"....basically a rich mans 
sports car,(back then)About the same amount of attention as a 
Ferrari 308 back then(and the 308's got a LOT of attention and 
admiration!!) because it was totally different from the past"dull 
looking" Vettes,and being rare since there were NOT many around yet 
of the new generation.(1984 AND 85 MODELS)
My point is after 24 years of basically "the same dull looking 
Vette"(cosmetically)people tend to just ignore it,had the Delorean 
still been in production in 2008,and had kept the same basic 
design/with the amount of yearly production that JZD envisioned.. 
today EVEN the Delorean would be ignored,just as much as the Vette 
is today.
Also in 1980,people mistook my red Bricklin as a rare exotic(one 
off) Ferrari 308 with Gullwing doors,later(mid-late 1980's)it was 
being mistaken for a Delorean.I would get more attention with my 
Bricklin,than when I was driving my Delorean(before the BTTF movies)
Overall the Corvette gathered a LOT of attention,the Bricklin EVEN 
MORE attention,and the Delorean Luke warm attention in the 1980's.
Now if and when GM comes out with a ALL NEW generation of Corvette 
that is totally different from the present Vette,it will get the 
same attraction as the 1984-85 Vettes did back in 1984-85.
