The first day of August, I, along with fellow bubblers, Alan E Taylor and his better half Elizabeth went to the 2010 Cromford Steam Rally in Derbyshire. Once again we were blessed with a lovely day and an excellent turnout.
Sitting in the parade ring are a trio of DeLorean DMC-12s.
The DeLorean DMC-12 is a sports car that was originally manufactured in Northern Ireland by the DeLorean Motor Company for the American market in 1981–1982. It is most commonly known simply as the DeLorean, as it was the only model ever produced by the company. The DMC-12 featured gull-wing doors with a fiberglass “underbody”, to which non-structural brushed stainless steel panels were affixed. A modified version of the car became iconic for its appearance as a time machine in the Back to the Future film franchise.
The first prototype appeared in March 1976, and production officially began in 1981 (with the first DMC-12 rolling off the production line on January 21) at the DMC factory in Dunmurry, Northern Ireland. During its production, several features of the car were changed, such as the hood (bonnet) style, wheels and interior. Approximately 9,000 DMC-12s were made before production stopped in late 1982. Today, about 6,500 DeLorean Motor Cars are believed to still exist. Texas entrepreneur Stephen Wynne started a separate company using the “Delorean Motor Company” name after acquiring the remaining parts inventory of DeLorean Motor Company. The company and factory stock were acquired privately in 1997 and made-to-measure new build cars can still be purchased. The primary facility is located in Humble, Texas. Additional facilities are currently located in Bonita Springs, Florida, Crystal Lake, Illinois, Bellevue, Washington, and Garden Grove, California. The current Delorean Motor Company is not, and has never been, associated with the original company but supports owners of DeLorean cars. (Wikipedia)
