[DML] Re: A message to prospective DeLorean owners.. a short story about trust

Well yes I was tainted Twice...

Once back in 1982 when I was doing a ground up restoration on my first delorean..

I had a ex-motorcycle cop who lived two houses away from me and hated my Brother..who then took it out on me when my brother moved out of my house..he sent one of his "brother" motorcycle cops in a friendly manner to investigate what I was doing in my home garage...

Being Honest(and at the time my only restoration project)I stupidly told him the truth..and his response was..

Oh yea..WOW..I have never seen a delorean...mind if I take a look..

So I fully open My garage(mind you THIS IS A COP ON DUTY)..and he goes in my garage and acts like he truly is excited about seeing a Delorean for the first time..But that was just his Poker face..

Unknown to me his MAIN GOAL was to get into my garage and get the Vin Number and try to use it against me in a criminal or Financial manner...

As he found out..the car was 101% Legit..But as I found out about a month later.. This cop turned in my vin to my Town Hall who promptly sent me this HUGE Tax Bill..(remember Deloreans were worth 30K or more in 1982 dollars) the POS used my Kindness and Honesty with him to help out my ex-motorcycle cop neighbor to try to screw me over.

Took me a lot of leg work to get the tax bill down to the value of it's worth in it's sate of restoration(less than 100 dollars in taxes)

Another Case was when I was selling off all my Deloreans and parts..I had a well known Vendor seek me out(how he got my Phone Number at that time was beyond me)I told him they were already SOLD to another well known vendor in the Netherlands..but refused to end it there..

And insisted to coming over to check them out..and would not take no for a answer..And when he did come down..would NOT leave it at "just looking" and Insisted that I break the agreement I had with the other vendor..even THO it was FOR MORE money with the other vendor..and he spent THREE HOURS explaining all the Pros.. to me why it was better to sell to him and the Cons not to sell to someone overseas..and I still did not want to sell to him..but he finally wore me down to the point..that I finally agreed to sell to him at a LOWER price than the original vendor...

But that is another can of worms..I wish NOT TO OPEN..that is why no vendor names were used...so Just end it HERE..end of story..
