This is true.
Also, I almost had a DeLorean gullwing as my first car =/
There was one for sale for I think $1800 that I saw in an Auto Trader magazine when I was about 14 or so, but my dad said it was too early to be thinking about getting me a car, and an $1800 DeLorean would surely have something wrong with it and they're rare/exotic enough that it would probably cost at least that much again to fix and would be too expensive to maintain. Granted, all that's almost definitely true, but logic's no fun. Also almost had a $1400 Porsche 944 as my first car, that was struck down for basically the same reasons.
