Hi - here are some pictures of a Delorean I saw at the weekend.  I remember all the fuss about it when it came out in the early 80s.
Here's the wikipedia link if you want more information -

Gorgeous car and a great idea but i'm not sure i'd want to own one and have to keep it on the road.

I spoke to the owner about that and it isn't that bad.  It looks like a supercar but has a Renault 3 litre V6, Cortina (or other Ford sourced) front brakes, Jaguar rear brakes and other non-exotic bits. The body is stainless steel so won't rust  ;)

I've seen a few on some car restoration shows and nope, they don't rust, they just rot away  :)) :))

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

I asked the owner how it was to drive and he said he was happy with it. But I suppose he would say that, then again as a second car why not have one as something different.

Great looking car in it's time Mike with a built to last body, but nothing else did.
Renault engine says it all..
