The DeLorean doesnt weigh 5000lbs. It weighs the same as a 3rd gen RX7.

It doent have a million horsepower, but it gets around and it looks cool.
The PRV motors did have some problems but if you want to nitpick and I can name LOTS of motors people call junk and others have no problems, or very few problems with.

Im not sure where you're finding $3000 DeLoreans.

I can find a $3000 ferrari too, in a junkyard without a motor.

NADA classicar bluebook on a DMC-12 with low miles, good driving condition and good VIN is 28-32 thousand dollars. And believe or not there are fine examples out there that are still pretty much original.

People sell junkyard cars and wheel and deal on ebay and it makes the good examples of these cars look bad.

I saw a Astin Martin On Ebay the other day for $12K,but the reserve wasnt met...so this must mean that all Astins are worth 12K because I saw it there.

UGGH.

Don't be hard on him please, he's not lying. He bought the car severely smashed up...so it was just like one of those $3000 Ferrari's you mentioned

Very, very true! It is sad how perceptions are twisted

Thumbs up

I'm just curious as to why dirk-diggler said "stupider" surely someone who can operate a computer can use proper grammar.Also I'd like to find a DeLorean for 3k myself, but I doubt it'll happen.I think a DeLorean is a fine automobile, regardless of what people say.If I ever get one I'll drop a 302 in it though

Hey now Didn't get a chance yet... WELCOME!

Don't worry about Dirk; he knows what he's doing & has been warned to keep the trash-talking to a minimum.

I like your DELOREAN sig:

I think DeLoreans are totally awesome, the whole concept is so original.
They atract more attention than a supercar. I was riding with a bunch of my buddies once, we saw one passing us going the other direction. We turned around and followed him for five miles, the guy stopped at a shopping center and we stopped too just to gawk at it. The guy woul not let us touch it though, because he said that fingerprint stains are hard to get out.
Hey I have one, and it fits in a dime-bag, ...no that's mean I was just kidding.

I like everything about those cars except that plastic part in front, where the lights screw in. I guess they made it like that so it would be cheaper to fix if a fender bender occured? You guys should get some custom hot rod builder to fabricate you a stainless steel nose, then it would be perfect.
