RE: [DMCForum] DeLorean dealership sign for sale



I was just funnin'.  :-)  I am thinking about selling my car, too, and have
had a few offers.  I have had three De Loreans, and the mystique is gone.
One thing I have learned, contrary to what people on the DML state about
only "qualified people" working on the car, is the car is very simple to
work on.  I have done a ton of work on this car and after every part I
thought, "that was it?  Why do people say this car is so hard to work on?"

Simply, do the math. Do I spend anywhere from forty to sixty grand on
a gently used toy and several hundred dollars a month in fuel, or do I
buy a car that's simply transportation, save myself a large pile of
cash up front not to mention reduce my monthly cash outflow, and
retire a few years earlier?

I sold my DeLorean for twice what I paid for the Insight. Now I have a
silly little car like everyone else, but it does the job of getting me
from point A to point B very efficiently. I no longer worry about
someone screwing with my car in a parking lot. I don't have to be
careful where I park. I can leave my car in front of someone's house
late at night who might not be in a great part of town. Nobody cares
about my car and if one day someone does, big deal - I am not
emotionally attached to it and I can replace it for cheap, unlike a
hot head turner that I've got crazy money, time and effort invested
into.

It was hard to sell the DeLorean. I had so much of my life into it. I
saved it for a few months, planned on just keeping it for a weekend
driver but I needed the space in my garage and some personal issues
cropped up that made owning a fancy car a bad idea. Still, I hated to
see it go. It was painful. It will be neither hard nor painful to sell
the Insight. I'd get rid of it without blinking if I found something I
liked better and was in the mood to pay for.

I am sure this all sounds crazy. Two years ago you couldn't have
convinced me I'd ever consider doing something like this. However, I'm
finding a nice fat investment portfolio is more attractive to me than
a high maintenance, exotic car that I worry about all the time because
it attracts too damn much attention. I like my cheap little econobox.
