    Twin-engine DeLorean – click above for high-res gallery
    Why is it that people feel compelled to do silly things to DeLoreans? At least this one hasn't been totally ruined by making it another "Back To The Future" tribute car to manifest its owner's fawning lack of originality. This ...

    The last interview DeLorean never gave?
    1269028680

    The name John DeLorean is synonymous with the automotive industry. From his days at General Motors, where he turned Pontiac into the automaker's de facto performance division with the creation of the GTO, and, therefore, the muscle car genre in general, to his days running his eponymous car ...

    No, Jay Leno did not travel back in time to 1985 (or 1981 when it was originally offered for sale) to drive a brand-new DeLorean. But that's clearly a stainless steel, wedged-shaped, gullwing-doored beauty ...

    Studios fighting for DeLorean biopic
    1244823360

    It doesn't take a genius to figure out why Hollywood is working on a film about a car company going kaput. You might wonder, however, why three different factions are working on another movie about John Z. DeLorean. Brett Ratner is collaborating with producer Robert Evans on one pic, and Face/Off ...

    eBay find of the day: BTTF SriLorean
    1216411320

    The seller states he's not really sure what this car is worth. Here's our estimate: it's worth even less than a regular '89 Scirocco with 123,000 miles. Why? Because it's been molested into a Delorean imposter. Not just any Delorean, either, but the Back To The Future Delorean, which so many people ...

    Kathryn DeLorean appeared on the DMC talk forum as Dmckid recently and asked, "Do you have a question about JZD?" That would be John Zachary DeLorean.

    Back to the Future, Bullitt added to National Film Registry
    1198960740

    Judging from how a generation of thirty-somethings have images of a flying, fusion-powered DeLorean imprinted in their DNA, we'd say that Back To The Future has left its mark. Likewise, Highland Green '68 Mustang fastbacks only look appropriate wearing American Racing Torq-Thrust Ds and flying ...

    Get your Flux Capacitors right here!
    1197323700

    Okay, let's get this straight. Back to the Future movies: cool. Making your DeLorean into a replica of the movie car: incredibly lame. Halfway between would be a reproduction flux capacitor. If you did buy this thing, you could certainly attain full lameness by installing in in your non-DeLorean. ...

    You may remember a post we did back in January about the DeLorean Motor Company selling flux capacitors and hover conversion kits on its website.

    Great Scott! Could new DeLoreans be coming?
    1185716580

    There's still a Delorean Motor Company, but it's not in the business of building new vehicles. At least not yet. The Texas-based firm purchased a lot of the assets of John DeLorean's original entity when it went belly-up, and it, along with its regional affiliates, does a brisk business keeping the ...

    Auto Lexicon: Top 5 four-wheeled metaphors
    1184765640

    Here's a fun column we came across talking about cars as metaphors. Kind of like referring to something as the "Rolls-Royce" of its industry means it's the best (or most expensive, perhaps). The writer, Miss Cellania, lists five vehicles that rightly or wrongly have come to be symbols of the worst ...
