This DeLorean has been well loved and cared for for the 12 years we have had her. We are the second owners. It is Number 4905 and is the 4,405th one to roll off of the line in Ireland. Of the 8,400 built this is one of the few of the 5,000 left in the world that still run and can be used as a daily driver. The "D" gets great gas mileage and zips down the highway or around town with ease. She gets the most attention at any of the car shows we have had her at. Kids from 6 to 80 all recognize it. It's like driving a museum piece and a movie star. Lots of questions to answer at every fill up. Research into the history and the BTTF movies will be necessary.I would love to keep her, but it is now time she went to a new home so someone else can enjoy and take care of her.
