Re: [DML] Where's the flux capacitor?

Well to be correct I had a 84 Vette in March 1985 it had the Z-51 
option,which in it's day was as high tech as a Z06 is today,it just 
had too much Electrical problems,being as the new Gen.Vette,so I kept 
it for about 10 months,then sold it,which was the reason I stuck with 
Deloreans again,just remember,17 years from now the same thing is 
going to be said about your 2001 Vette it being nothing,my Vette was
 capable of handling 160mph,and also had the same deep exhaust 
note,and in those days owning a 1984-85(remember this was 1985) Vette 
was equivalent/no different than owning a Ferrari 308GTSi,since of 
course there were NOT many new generation Vettes around yet,try to 
make that statement with a 2001 Vette.

But of course since in those days Deloreans in MINT showroom 
Condition,with almost no miles,one owner or NO owner condition were 
easy to find,and you could get the above Deloreans with what you pay 
today for a rough Delorean($8000.00-$12,000)it WAS well worth going 
back into buying a Delorean again!!

Today I would be hard pressed trying to "find" that perfect Delorean 
that was so easy to find in the 1980's,unless I was to spend at LEAST 
25K or better,which I would refuse to do since I was spoiled from the 
1980's era of being able to buy those perfect Deloreans on the cheap.
Kinda like remembering the hot Ladies from the 1980's and then seeing 
them today. : (
