[DML] Re: $20K DeLorean Rule

Umm,I would not say that,it just depends on how patient you are with 
your Delorean,but basically if you buy a Delorean with a reasonably 
decent drive train, frame, and Black-body and SS panels,you are 
already half way there,the parts can be found on Ebay for reasonable 
prices...sometimes dirt cheap,since ebay has been around,there has 
not been any part that could not be found on that site at very 
reasonable rates,and in some cases wholesale lots!!
I had it "easy" when I was restoring deloreans,as it was just a 
matter of finding a parts car,since any Delorean in the 1980's that 
was totaled was ripe fruit ready for the plucking,I knew that all the 
undamaged parts would be as new,since the cars were still "new".So in 
the case of the Deloreans the 20K rule can be broken if someone is 
wise enough to look around for the good deals on Ebay and other 
sites,it may take some effort...but it can be done.If you go on Ebay 
at any time you will find parts selling for a fraction of what a 
vendor sells them for.Now if you buy all vendor parts,then the 20-30K 
rule applies!! Example: Right now I need a Toyota electric fuel pump 
dealer cost $329.99,located one on Ebay $24.99 plus 6.50 shipping OEM 
NEW !!
