[DML] Re: DeLorean Thoughts (Welmoedj)



A totalitarian Maoist ownership community is but one possibility.
Another is a community in which diversity is appreciated (not just
tolerated), in which synergies between individual DeLoreans and their
owners' particular interests and skills sets are celebrated. Such a
possibility won't simply fall into our laps. It requires owners to be
self examining and reflective. It requires them to do research and
make evaluations. It requires the ability to say both "yes" and "no,"
and discernment to know when each is individually appropriate.

Note that these sentiments do NOT portend a world populated with
nothing but non-stock DeLoreans. For many people, the most satisfying
ownership experience will deviate little from the car's original
design (this is certainly the case for concours enthusiasts). If an
owner knows his or her reality well enough to make an informed
decision to keep a car stock -- great. That is NOT simply following a
crowd. That is a particular ownership choice based upon examination
and evaluation.

BTW: Following a crowd is easy. Living the DeLorean dream in the
context of one's individual reality requires much more effort. But it
also is very rewarding. Simply following a crowd tends to be less
satisfying in the long run.
