Re: [DML] A message to prospective DeLorean owners..do show up with James Book



No..It was CHASE them off my property...Well assuming it was a clunky Big book..it would be a slow chase..

All kidding aside..

The first meaning of "chasing" was on first meeting..

Usually you just visually look the car over and take it for a test drive..no books or any notes needed... That's when the owner has the option to chase them away if they dare show up with James book..haha

Then you decide if the car is worth anymore of Your time

Then the second visit is when you "tear it" apart to find any major problems with it..preferably bringing James in a tuxedo and a DMC wine bottle to sweeten the deal..

If that doesn't work then bring along James Book and your notepad with a checklist..

And by all means don't ask the seller where the Flux Capacitor is.

Or he WILL chase you off his property.
