- So I guess add
another feather to the "you're the luckiest fuck on
the planet" cap, but Delorean has no more driver's
side tail lights. None. In the world. I needed the
passenger's side tail light... they had 2. Danny at
Huntington Beach Delorean says they haven't needed to
make more, but if they get an order for a bunch
they'll probably find a manufacturer that can
make brand new ones. That would take easily a year if
they even bothered to do it! And as you'll see in the
video, there's a stack of rear fascia pieces and,
well, once they're gone... uhm. Good luck hoping
they'll just spend the time processing those for one
person. This is why you see Delorean always trying to
re-release the car. They need interest to fund what
would be extremely expensive R&D to replicate the
body parts. They're not gonna do it for one sale to
Adam in California...
- ...so basically,
what the fuck is insurance for?! Ya know? What's the
dollar amount for irrepleacable? See why it's
stressful to drive this goddamned thing even if it's
running properly? I'm ok today, tomorrow who knows.
Anyway, got some cool footage...
- The good news is
that no matter what, I can put the car back together
as a non-working MODEL and tow it to my gig this
upcoming Saturday. I did have a tentative Marty
Package booked (where I'd have to drive it), but he
hasn't called back and I'm certainly not doing my
normal follow-up. LMFAO. So far we're still ahead of
- ...but man, I will
be getting new insurance after this and I haven't
the slightest idea how to price it. 'Cause it simply
becomes "sorry for your luck, hope this makes you feel
better" money and when it's your business?
Nothing makes you feel better if you can't re-open.
