  1. 5609: The Story of a Remanufactured DeLorean Part 5 of 5

    I bought my car in Feb. 2009 and here I am, still smitten with my dream car. I just now realized this is the longest I have ever owned a single car. Granted none of my previous rides were this pricey, but they were all nice cars(eventually). I would spend months if not years bringing whatever car I was driving up to snuff, but no matter how nice I made them, I did move on. The car I had just before my DeLorean was a cherry 1991 300ZX. I loved those cars when they were new, and to an extent, that's ...

  2. 5609: The Story of a Remanufactured DeLorean Part 4 of 5

    Over the years my car it has went from what I would consider a very nice DeLorean to an exceptional DeLorean. So what does "Exceptional" mean? As far as I'm concerned, it's not original, and certainly not Concurs. I have said it time and time again, I wouldn't trust even a concours original car to the quicky mart and back. A original DeLorean was plagued with quirks and problems that would easily leave you by the side of the road...and that was when they were BRAND NEW! That's just my ...

  3. 5609: The Story of a Remanufactured DeLorean Part 3 of 5

    5609 is no doubt in the nicest condition it has ever been in. During my ownership period I have nit picked and labored away to make it into the absolute best DeLorean I could. Before I go any further, let me make one thing clear, this car is not something I idolize. It's a car, a bunch of parts built by other men, nothing more. It doesn't have a "soul" and I have no emotional attachment to it. If someone offered me 50k to sell it to them for their museum, and his friend offered me 51k ...

    The Way Home

    I hung up the phone. My hands were shaky, my heart was pounding. I have been in some high dollar poker hands before and I hoped my poker face was better than my DeLorean face. Did that just happen? Did I really just buy my dream car over the phone sight unseen from a complete stranger? OK, the pictures look nice, the frame looks nice, why shouldn't it be nice? It's a DMCH remanufactured car with 1,700 miles...it should be perfect right? Was that guy a Nigerian prince? ...

  5. 5609: The Story of a Remanufactured DeLorean Part 1 of 5

    Every DeLorean has a story, this is 5609's

    5609 is a remanufactured DeLorean. A car that was parted out, a car that had no future left, a car that was given a second chance.

    In November of 1981, vin 5609 left her plant in Dunmurry and soon found her first home in the United States. She lived a life of most DeLoreans, she was driven and enjoyed, then eventually abandoned and forgotten about. Stored by people who have no idea how to properly put a car in long term storage. ...
