Subject: Re: Fwd: DeLorean on ebay

If you scroll down a little farther, there is a notice that has been 
placed stating that the owner isn't selling the car, but an agent for 
the owner is. The disclaimer also states that the description comes 
directly from the owner. Unless the owner has only had the car for a 
very short time and hasn't become familiar with it, I'd say that this 
is a typo on the agents side. It's like there are generic forms that 
someone fills out when placing an online ad for a car. Example: I saw 
an ad in Auto Trader last week for a truck that was fully loaded for 
a low price. When I got to the dealership, it was a stripped model. 
Turns out that the guy who placed the ad in for the dealership got a 
little over zealous when checking off what options the truck was 
equiped with. Another good indicator is that the ad states that the 
car comes with "Original Handbooks". I've always heard printed 
documentation for the DeLorean always refered to as Manuals, not 

Conclusion: This is probably a typo on the agents side. I wouldn't be 
to quick to question the owner as of yet as much as the person who is 
selling the vehicle for him. But one thing's for sure. I'd be a 
little upset if I paid for advertising space only to share space with 
a boat that someone else is trying to hawk. On the flip side though, 
good eye catching the errors. Further proof that you should always 
research a car before you buy it!
