The Pros & Cons of buying a 1981 DeLorean off ebay


So there's a auction over at eBay motors that has a 1981 DeLorean going for about $13,000, and don't think for a second that I haven't considered it. Like other great minds, when I have a huge decision to make - I go to my legal pad, split it down the middle and make a Pro's/Con's list.

Pro
The possibility of time travel like in the Back To The Future trilogy.


Con
The technology for the Flux Capacitor is still not available in the 23 years since the original Back To The Future.

Pro
I know someone who bares a resemblance to Doc Brown and he worked for NASA, maybe he can find away to turn the DeLorean into a time travel device, maybe I'll be able to get that hover board skateboard.

Con
Back To The Future 2 occurs in 2015, the technology for the hover board skateboard is only 5 to 6 years away at the least.


Pro
The doors are non-traditional and opening them is always a cool visual.

Con
The doors are not very practical, may be hard to park in mall parking lots during the Holiday Season.


Pro

It only has 7,000 miles on it, that's pretty impressive for a 27 year old car.

Con
It's a car from 1981, parts may be hard to find.

Pro
I'd be the guy driving a 1981 DeLorean.

Con
I don't have a driver's license, leaving all of this debate null. Guess I'm sticking to my metrocard for now.

Decision:
No go on the DeLorean for now due to the lack of a license, maybe some day.
