They're not the best cars made, but they really intrigue me. I'm sure I'd love them more if I actually saw one (no, I've never ever seen one, even though I see about 30 Ferrari's a year). I want to see pics of Yogs' D

Indifferent build quality.

Ho-hum handling.

Underpowered.

Neato styling.

I think they're kind of cool, despite myself.

Then again, I think anything that's a little different is good

A typical product of its age,all the thinking went into the styling,handling,durability and build quality were not considered selling points back then.A shame,because they are nice to look at....

Talking love-hate

Fun to drive! Handling that beats the F out of anything else I've driven. Seriously. Can you say "engineered by Lotus"? I remember driving down a backroad with my friend. I placed my drink on the center console so i could take a turn. My friend stared in shock as the drink did not tip (25 MPH curve at 60MPH). Can you say "low center of gravity"? Lotus has my respect!

Sufficiently fast for an everyday car. You've gotta remember that the DMC was marketed as a daily driver / last forever / get parts at your local store type of car. 0-60 in 7 seconds is pretty good in my book for a daily driver (made in the early 80's). Today's Subaru WRX runs high 5's, but is ugly, no leather, turbos will wear out, etc...

Easiest car in the world to get into / out of (thanks to the gullwing doors). I can park about a foot from a wall and still open the door all the way. Can't do that with Viper...

Alas, I have a love-hate relationship with 'em. Drunken Irishman quality control mixed with British eletrical components. I own one (used to own two), and love or hate just depends upon the day.

Not right now. The best pic I have is the one I use for my avatar. I will get more pictures in the future, but for now I am "occupied".

You drive an old, boxy Accord and you don't like the DMC? I will never understand people...

I think Deloreans were the coolest cars ever made. Seriously, I'd take a Delorean over a Porche, or a Viper any day. The only complaint I ever had with the Delorean was its serious lack of power, and no cup holders. Everything else is great. Especially the gull wing doors, oh how I miss those gull wing doors(You never realize it until you're stuck with a normal car).
