Photo of a 1981 De Lorean DMC-12 304 Stainless (Auto Rama 1st Place)


This is my Pre-Production Dmc 12 at the 2005 Detroit Auto Rama, I got so much attention at this show that 2 guards we placed by my spot, I was horse after 1 day of explaining that the car was not stripped of paint & what color I was going to repaint it or why I took the Ford v-8 out to put the V-6 PVR in.
I also got the BTTF fans going & the Little "Where's the flux capacitor" jokes. The worst part of this was No one seamed to remember that John De Lorean was acquitted of all Those Drug Charges because of the drug sting operator telling John De Lorean that "they would Kill His Daughter & bring him her head if he didn't follow through with the operation", ( ALL ON TAPE!!!!!!!). So you can make all the white line jokes or where's the coke jokes but, a great man was persecuted just because GM made Margret Thatcher & Prince Charles VP'S of Overseas Operations. Since the English Government had Loaned the Millions for Him to open his Factory in Belfast Ireland they decided to close him up by not letting De Lorean Take his Cars to the US or any where else for that matter. by removing the Dies to make the stamped parts like all the Stainless Steel Fenders, Doors, Quarter panels, Hoods which was millions to have remade he couldn't make his car any more. So Bankruptcy was the only thing John De Lorean Could Do. John Died Still Having paying his Attorneys for his defence team. So the next time you see a Delorean I Hope this give you a little insight on how We owners Feel & why we strive to Let the truth be Known & "To Live The Dream" As John Said. to find out more about John Delorean & his Factory check out these links:
