Mike Persyn shares his DeLorean story, and Dave Tavres talks about their odd connection over finding Mike’s stolen (and destroyed) DeLorean.
Mark talks about restoring VIN #03864, including repairing the sagging roof, and “boxing in” the lower control arms; almost buying a Bricklin; his visit to DMC Texas; and his interest in the DeLorean since he was a kid.
Sarah Heasty saw her first DeLorean in-person as a hurricane was coming to town, and finally bought her dream car from DMC Texas. She talks about how the car has connected her and her dad, and a fun story about someone pretending her DeLorean was actually theirs.
The last employee of the DeLorean Motor Company, Ltd., Barrie Wills, joins DeLorean Talk to share his experiences with DMCL, his 50 years in the auto industry, his time with John Z. DeLorean, and a little known fact about the Dunmurry Motor Company.
As a new DeLorean owner with lots of questions, I thought this would be a great way to get to know the community, find some answers and get different perspectives on everything DeLorean – whether that be driving the car, repairing it, finding parts, talking about the history of the factory, John Z. DeLorean and his life or the car shows and events that individuals and clubs do around the world.
I hope you’ll join me in these discussions with owners, fans and anyone with a connection to the iconic DeLorean Motor Car.
