YAK Car Pic of the Day

.

Thursday afternoon on Facebook, someone made a remark about the types of parking lots I hang out in — I think it was a sideways compliment on the lovely Ford Fairmonts we featured here yesterday. Well cast your eyes on this: a DeLorean DMC-12 seen a couple of weeks back in — you guessed it, a Tonawanda parking lot. The DeLorean was manufactured in 1981-82 at a new plant in Northern Ireland. A plant built and paid for by the government after DeLorean head honcho John Z. DeLorean led them down a rosy path which turned out to contain more thorns than roses. Only about 9,000 were built, with the most famous one being one of the stars in the Back to the Future movie trilogy. You can view a rare DeLorean brochure here.
