dude was a genius just like Hitler.... the only problem being, Hitler had power as well. With that power his project couldn't fail, funny thing being his project aided in the rebuilding of Germany after the war and he was removed. Crazy how things happen.

With the same influence the DeLorean probably would have sold better as well.... then again without the war who knows were VW would have ended up. Gotta love looking back at history, it always makes you wonder.

I think the time frame in which this vehicle was produced was the main issue.

The USA was dealing with oil issues and the cold war. Also the production cost of the car went up drasically ( to my understanding, when the DeLorean was a concept they wanted it to be priced around 12,000 dollars, hense the 12 in the car name.) But because of the production costs being so pricey, they ended up cutting back and also raising the price.

Sweet ride, dude.

My dad has been looking at getting a car lately, and despite his insistance on either a Mercedes SLK or Toyota MR2, I always manage to "accidentally" bring up DeLoreans:D :D :D .

Apart from the BTTF references, these cars are simply stunning.

Dang, I wish I had known about that earlier. Is it Saturday or Sunday? My fiancé and I have plans to visit wedding locations Saturday.
I'm pretty sure it is Saturday night 4/6...that's usually when they did them last summer. It's right downtown around the train depot and tracks, and there is usually live music and a pretty good turn out.
How long have you owned that car? I seem to remember seeing it somewhere around when we lived in Atlanta, or when we were visiting....when you are a BTTF fan and see a Delorean with Outatyme as the plate...you tend to remember that.

GREAT SCOTT!!! Nice Ride Man!

I came across this on You Tube Felt is was appropriate to the thread. In fact, there were a bunch more commercials on there as well.

Favorite scene from movie was when the Doc had that contraption on his head and trying to read Marty's mind. Then after a few failed attempts, he says "Do you know what this means? .... It means that this dam thing doesn't work at all" always loved that part!
Awesome car dude, love the plate too!

Love that they used the "cool" hood on the hot wheel.:cool:
I swear if I left my car alone at a DMC event it would turn up missing its gas flap! DMC guys are crazy about that hood. I just link not having to worry about a strong gust of wind catching it during a fill up.

Nice car!!! Here is mine:
I have bought about 20 of these Hot Wheels since they came out. Yours has different packaging than mine though.
