Re: 1982

Not only did snow cause havoc across the mid-west this year, but it also destroyed a legend in car manufacturing! ;)

rumor has it that all the stockpiled parts from the cars were to be put to use and a limited number of cars were to be made somewhere in the higher 5 figures or so

Re: 1982


I remember one of the kids in my camp was dropped off each day at the dock in a Delorean (we took a ferry from there to an island).

I loved it at the time, but now the doors look like they'd be horrible for getting in & out after parking. I fear I'm becoming too practical!

Nice design - I really like the snow surf

& the Gaggle of Girls; so many shirts, so little space in the dresser!

I heard something about that too. A very limited run.

Did the kid get out of the car wearing mirror lens aviators? *giggles* Thats awesome! Growing up there was one down the street from where I lived and we would watch for it to pull out of the garage sometimes! Cool you got the references, Thank you!

The new DeLorean Motor Company is home-based in Dallas. Some time ago the company purchased the rights to the DeLorean name as well as the logos, and has made their business by servicing and re-manufacturing DMC-12s. Although the company started by buying up as many original spare parts as it could find, it has since contracted with a number of original OEMs to manufacture new and/or reproduction parts. In 2006 this supply became sufficient enough that they have stopped re-manufacturing old cars and are now able to build-to-order new vehicles from scratch. Base models start at $57,500, and a number of factory options are available, including a 197hp engine, cosmetic upgrades, and several interior modernizations.

Information about the company can be found here: http://www.delorean.com/

And before anyone asks, no, I don't work for them. I'm just a fan.
