[DML] Re: $20K DeLorean Rule



The $20K rule is a reality check and a guideline. In fact if you talk
to the vendors nowadays it is probably closer to $25 or $30K. Wether
you believe it or not, it will come out to that # one way or another.
You can do it all at once or you can spread it out over time. Either
way you WILL spend it. This is not being elitist, it is just the way
it is. BTW this includes the purchase price so you can buy a "beater"
and spend a lot on it or you can buy a "pretty", well maintained one,
it doesn't matter. In the real world buying a reliable car (any car)
that you can trust and drive anywhere for $20,000 is not all that
much. The main purpose of the $20K rule is to prepare a newbie who
gets that "bargain" for maybe $9,000 (or less!) and thinks that's all
he will have to spend. This is one of the biggest mistakes a newbie
can make. By not having the resources the car starts draining him and
getting him stuck everywhere he goes. Finally he gets so fed up that
he winds up selling the POS. Better to tell him in advance what he is
in for. Anyway not all Delorean owners are as clever and creative as
you are and must pay someone for all the work!!!!!!!!
