My father was the original owner of this. We were estranged for 20 years. My family thought he'd sold it in the mid 1990s. After he died in Costa Rica (where he'd been an ex-patriot for ten years) I got a phone call form some lady in Austin, TX who, after confirming I was his son, told me there was an old car in a storage unit under his name. It was indeed the DeLorean. The rest is history.
