[DML] Vettes and DeLoreans (was: Where's the flux capacitor?)



Mark,
     I understand where you are coming from.  3 years ago I bought a 
1991 black on black 1991 Corvette ZR-1.  It was my daily driver right 
up until I moved back to the east coast.  There is absolutely nothing 
like it that I have driven yet.  You don't get in a Corvette so much 
as "put it on."  Once in you're a part of the car and it is an INTENSE 
sensation!  If I am gentle I can get 28MPG on the highway at 70-75MPH, 
but with 405HP and 400 lb.-ft....who can resist?
     That said, I love my DeLorean and couldn't see parting with it, 
unless the right offer came along.  I am toying with one that's close, 
actually, but I know that if I were to sell, once I built my garage out 
east I'd look for another.  The ownership of the two cars is 
drastically different. There are a lot of members of the list who own 
both, many for the same reasons.  If you are looking for a really great 
performing car with lots of speed, the Vette is for you.  If you want 
the "wow factor" and don't mind the questions and remarks, that's the 
DeLorean.  Each car has its own unique following and its own quirks.  I 
think it is great that you found your Vette and I hope you get much 
happiness from it.  We're also glad you're sticking around because you 
spark a lot of good discussions and often have a great counterpoint 
that makes people think.

So how many Vette owners have waived to you?  That used to happen a 
lot, kind of like a code between Vette owners, but I find that as the 
years go by, that's getting lost.
