Marcus Voyles spotted and shot two DeLorean DMC’s recently, in setting that suggest that they’re still being used to go shopping or such. Here’s #1.
And #2. Yes, I checked the plates to make sure they’re not the same one.
Backing one of those things (as in picture 1) out of a suburban shopping store parking space, surrounded by SUVs and crossovers that are three times your height…into cross traffic of distracted drivers or people who will yield to no one forever…must be a real blast.
Not a issue. Just back into the parking spot.
The odds of spotting one ,but two?.
Great concept but ruined by details.
I saw a derelict DeLorean in a field off of Route 89 in Seneca County, NY on Friday, all covered with weeds, so that one isn’t being used for grocery runs to Greenstar or Wegmans in Ithaca.
Yes, they are still around. There is one here in Tigard OR I see on a semi regular basis.
This past spring I saw a DeLorean on the road for the first time in quite a while – probably not far from where these pictures were taken, but this one has a side stripe, so it’s yet another DeLorean that’s still going about its business on the roads:
Picture came out pretty poor quality there… here’s a better image:
Wait a minute, Doc. Ah… Are you telling me you built a grocery getter… out of a DeLorean???
Maybe they`re making a remake of ‘Back to the Future’, but this time it`s set in the 90s. The SUVs and other out time cars can be digitally removed,and cars of that era can be put in the film with CGI effects , like in 99% of today`s movies.
Always a great day when one spots not just one but two DMC’s. Here in Minnesota I have only ever seen them at car shows. If I ever win the lottery my second indulgence would be a Teslorean. I would have new front and rear clips fabricated from stainless steel that match the original shape but more importantly match the stainless body panels. That would give it the seamless look it’s always needed in my eyes.
As Mark has already said, a great concept ruined by details! I do agree fully. I know a collector who has got one of these over here in Germany. He has sunk big cash into it to get it Autobahn-reliable, car wash waterproof and night driving reliable. It suffered from poor workmanship of sealing body panels, cheap materials of electrical wiring, cooling problems, noise problems (long distance driving with noise cancelling headphones …) and much more. He still loves his DeLorean but on the Autobahn he would need the motive Power of a Lambo Urraco at least, not that of a French V6.
