Re: [DML] New posting at www,

I really enjoyed reading this because it sounds like exactly the type of
advice that I've given to lots of people looking for a cheap car.

It's amazing how pictures of DeLoreans can be very deceiving, but you get
trained on how to pick "suggestions" out.  I find that I typically
use characteristics of the car to paint a picture of the seller (or
previous owners), and then decide if this was the type of person to
maintain the car properly.  This is something the untrained Ebay DeLorean
buyer usually isn't very good at, and can frequently get them into
expensive trouble.

In James' example, the dude replaced only the base of one seat leather.
This would be a deal-breaker for me unless the car was super cheap because
it tells me that the previous owner is okay with sloppy work that looks

This post made me think of a guy I work with who sent me a link to a photo
of a guy in a DeLorean (as people tend to do when they know you have one).
He was amazed that I jokingly picked out a torn seat, warped fascia with
bad paint, and sagging headliners -- and he didn't notice any of them.
Owning this car has warped my mind...
