Re: [DML] Recent Delorean Sales for replacement value





Well said.
And true of any car, I think. Never get a car, or most other collectibles, as an "investment."

I agree with Martin, but only slightly.  If you have a $15,000 car and spend $10,000 on parts alone then you have a $20,000 car.  Labor (typically half of the bill if you're not doing it yourself) is never included.  So if you paid someone $10k to install parts on your $15k car then it's only a $17,500 car.  

If your parts were direct stock replacement parts like calipers, fuel pump, injectors, A/C or anything else that came stock on the car already I believe you've only maintained the $15k value of the car, not increased it.  You just make it a more likely candidate to sell.
