RE: [DMCForum] Response to DW D1 add and Extreme Prices for DOA Las Vegas event



You have some good points Bob, and I am a purist lol. 

I for one take pride and have a lot of fun making my car look as nice as possible while at the same tme keeping it reliable for daily use.  I didn't get my D to be fast, there are a million cars out there for that.  For me it was owning a piece of automotive history and to show it off when I could.  Mine is not a museum piece but a pretty damn good restored drivable piece.  I have done very few upgrades beyond safety ones, but never put my decision above any one elses.  I enjoy seeing what you guys come up with and applaud your creative upgrades.

I am just one of those who are happy being a little slower off the line, but looking kick ass doing it.

Martin,

Your comments reminds me of the good old days. Years ago and today, 
it is common for young people to modify their engines to get more HP. 
This was always fun and a good time when working with your buddies.

What was important was performance. How many of us had a car with a 
hopped up engine and terrible paint or rust?

Some of this fun has been lost with DeLoreans. It seems like more 
concern is expressed about making the car look nice? Rather than 
having fun with it.

Only a few of us, change engines or try to increase the HP. The whole 
idea of a hot rod was was more HP and fun. I see this "look nice" 
aspect with many restored cars today. They look nice, but what 
happened to the fun aspect?

I think what you are doing is great fun and very interesting. It is 
basic R & D on what it takes to make the PRV produce HP reflective of a 
sports car.

Is the DeLorean a fun hot rod, sports car that you can play around 
with, or is it is museum piece to keep shiny and clean?

Maybe I am just ranting, and I don't mean to offend any D owners. 
But, some of the fun aspect of playing with a car and doing crazy 
things to it , just seems to be fading away.

Bob
