Re: [DML] How to sell a DeLorean



I mostly agree with this statement. You can always "give" the car 
away without difficulty. Getting what it's really worth may take a 
bit of work.

I've considered selling mine recently. I'm not in any kind of dire 
financial straits so I wouldn't let it go for less than I feel it's 
worth, the market be damned. If I don't get my price, oh well.

We as a community kind of dig our own hole as far as the car's worth 
is concerned. People keep selling "pristine, low mileage" cars that 
have been stored forever and don't run for too little money. If we 
feel that the cars are truly valuable, then we need to quit giving 
them away on eBay and make people pay for them.

Not that I enjoy invoking Claude's name, but I believe he has a 
spreadsheet that tracks all eBay sales of DeLoreans over a 
considerable span of time. Maybe he'll share it and you can see the 
trend.

include a few of the frame (most people don't do this).  You will 
probably get a reasonable amount of money for the car.  More, if you 
are willing to export (the weak US dollar makes it cheap to export 
American cars).

even months (in this bad economy) to find a buyer willing to pay, but 
in most cases if your asking price is not unreasonable you will get 
it.  You may also want to see if your vendor knows of anyone looking 
to buy.
