The DFP continues their "Driving With" series by conversing with Michael Leydet, an engineer who works for a prosthetics company in Michigan. He recently parted with $16,500 to obtain a 1981 DeLorean with 14,000 miles, a car he considers neither fast nor practical. It was an impulse buy to get an excellent example of early-80s stylish- and uniqueness. Leydet claims it's like driving a parade down the street because of the attention it attracts, and that getting in and out of the car is difficult because of the gullwing doors, but that's part of the fun of owning a DeLorean. Just for reference, my own personal last impulse buy was dropping $0.50 extra for guacamole during my last trip to the local taco hut.
