    Wow. Such a difference in the one listed for $54,500 and this one listed at $22,900. Same year, very different condition, all based on how it was stored and cared for.

    Even more so, the people will be lined up at the gate to buy a 15k-20k DeLorean that needs 20k in parts and labor to be made whole, and at the same time scoff at the pristine 35-40k example as being overpriced and the owner a "dreamer" as one lazy person likes to put it.

    Exactly. I know for a fact that these pristine $35-40 cars are worth at least every penny and more. Like you said, just try to make a lesser one whole and see how much time and money that costs.

    The rotten auto also has 3 tell-tale holes in the left wing/fender from a BTTF conversion.

    I've just bought a BHCC car, and it's finally on the boat over to me. Will be interesting to see how much needs doing. The underpinnings look solid, as do all the panels (bar the right wing), but figuring everything else inbetween needs replacing. Going to settle in to a nice long project...

    Also FWIW I don't think BHCC are dishonest at all - especially not by the standards of most car dealers. They give you a shitload of photos to make the decision yourself, and when I was talking to them they were happy to take whatever photos / inspect whatever areas I could think of. Agree that unless it says it's running, assume it doesn't (mine isn't). They definitely don't volunteer stuff, but to be honest I don't know any car dealers who do, but they don't seem dishonest.

    I'm not massively thrilled that I've paid what I've paid for it, but I was focusing on other things when the prices started to rise, so that's on me. It boggles the mind a bit that the market is what it is - I'm young enough to remember museum quality right-hand-drive DMC12s going for not much more than the basket case wrecks go for here now.

    I've set up an Instagram for the car, which is here: https://www.instagram.com/delorean4267/ - we'll see how much regret is to come.

    Many people have been likewise baffled that prices remained low for such a long time. There is a herd mentality: those stupid prices for Mopar in the mid 00s are over and now there's tulip mania over all things 911. The D has had a modest and slow but solid appreciation.
