The DeLorean Returns
Since I won’t cop to watching the annoyingness that is any Back to the Future movie, I have to admit to what is perhaps a greater evil… which is having spent a significant portion of my free time last week watching most of the just-released DVD set of season two of Dynasty. Either way, I’d be guilty of something described by using the phrases “cheesy” and “80s” in the same sentence.
What does scream “80s”, but maybe not so much “cheesy” is the car featured in both Back to the Future and in Dynasty’s season two, the DeLorean, complete with gull-wing doors and brushed stainless steel body.
And I’m expounding on this why? Because the DeLorean is back! Actually, in the mind of some enthusiasts, they have never gone away. But, now there really is a second coming. DeLorean Motor Car (DMC) is gearing up for a new production run of the unique automobile with initial availability expected in Q1 of 2008. DMC’s website shows immediate availability for rebuilt DeLoreans on a made-to-order basis. But 2008 looks like it will usher in a whole new era, including updated interiors and better engines. Estimated price? $57,500. Mad scientist and geeky kid (Back to the Future) or evil, scheming, man-whore psychiatrist with a hidden agenda (Dynasty) not included.
