Translogic takes a look at the DMC 12 – Click above to watch video after the jump

The crew from Translogic had a chance to spend some time with one of the most iconic cars of the '80's – the DeLorean DMC-12. Co-host Bradley Hasemeyer took the time to look into the cars over three episodes by stopping into the DMC of California shop to see how the cars are continuing to survive, what owners are doing to update the machines and what's on the horizon for the stainless gullwing. While the DeLorean originally hit the scene with a lowly 130 horsepower, the company has managed to squeeze nearly 200 ponies from the 2.8-liter V6 with some creative engine work.

You can even have a DMC-12 built nearly brand-new for you right now if you have the cash. The company strips a donor car down to its individual pieces, swaps the standard steel frame for a stainless bits and goes from there. Hasemeyer doesn't say exactly how much that will set you back, but we can imagine it's not cheap, especially for a car that would get the run around by your run of the mill Honda Accord. Hit the jump to take a look (hint: If you just want to skip to the DeLorean material, you'll want to cue ahead to 1:40 in to the first video), and if you like what you see, subscribe to Translogic via iTunes.
