DeLorean Car Show - June 14-17 Orlando
« on: February 07, 2012, 07:05:11 PM »
I don't own a DeLorean, but I had a friend in highschool whose father had one. It was such a cool car for its time. It's great to see a group of people keeping these cars alive...I might have to make the trip to Disney to check it out.

I drove to Atlanta about 13 years ago to buy a Delorean, had the cashier's check in my pocket.   The car had been through a hail storm, but was otherwise immaculate and upgraded.  In the end, the hail dings were more than what he made them out to be in pics and over the phone, so I passed.   And when I got back home I started looking at other cars, and that's when I bought the 93 Rx7 I owned for many years.

I loved the Delorean's look, but it was a bit of a letdown on the test drive.   You're very much reminded of the fact that you're driving a 30 year old car.   That said, I'd own one just for the experience if the right deal popped up.  With this group, I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that it was definitely a dream car of mine in the 80's.
