1/12/12: DeLorean Motor Company (DMC)

::: Facebook: Become a Fan :::

I literally stumbled upon this location by complete accident! I drove by and out of the corner of my eye, I noticed a whole fleet of DeLoreans sitting behind this inconspicuous building! I was sold.



I walked into the showroom five minutes before closing time and struck up a conversation with a very kind employee. Unfortunately, the only photography gear that I had come with for this completely impromptu opportunity was my iPhone. I knew that I had to come back another day with my real camera gear to take some photos of these futuristic cars. With that said, I was there the next morning!

I was given an unheard of opportunity to get up close and personal with these historic cars. One of the DeLoreans that I photographed, the DeLorean DMC-12, is actually a prototype and one of the very last, if not the only, car of its type in existence - talk about rare. (It can be distinguished from the others with its DMC-12 badges)









While these cars are all over 30 years old, the company does a magnificent job of restoring them to factory finish and detail. I feel privileged and lucky to not only have spotted these cars by complete luck, but also to have had the opportunity to spend some time with them as well. This opportunity was truly as close to an automotive enthusiast's heaven / barn find as you can possibly imagine. The prototype was caked in dust from being in storage and barely has any miles. After a quick wipe down, it looked absolutely pristine. All around me in their storage facility was random engines, components, doors etc. from DeLoreans past - unbelievably cool to see in person.

Here are some of my images from my morning spent with DMC, enjoy:



The sight that initially drew me in to begin with:

wow, this brings back memories. I used to own a DeLorean Thanks for sharing
Oh man, I'd love to hear your experience while owning one. I don't think I would ever personally buy one but I can appreciate them. I'm too much of a paranoid person to own a 30+ year old car in fear that it would break down at every stoplight that I'm at.
