The DeLorean

 

The first DeLorean DMC was made in 1981 by John DeLorean (that swank dude pictured above).  About 9000 rolled off the lot and into the hands, or driveways, of drivers during its two years of production. DeLorean was a brilliant engineer, responsible for the Pontiac GTO muscle car, the Pontiac Firebird, Pontiac Grand Prix, who dreamed of something even greater.  Unfortunately, after he created the badass DeLorean DMC-12 (made of stainless steel!) he ran into some drug smuggling problems and the whole company went down with him. Regardless, he got off on his charges, as all cool engineers do, but by then no one was interested in the car anymore …

 

 

 

yep, this one is solid gold!

 

… but today we have Steven Wynn serving as president of the DeLorean Motor Car Company, and he has big plans to bring back the defunct vehicle from the dead.  Look for it in 2013!  I’d buy one.
