Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the the 'first' Production DMC-12 shown to the press.

Tony Swann has posted up a rare video of the moment John DeLorean drove the car out of the factory and around the test track!

Never seen this footage before, for those who didn't see it on Facebook this morning, thought I'd post it here.

  Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 & DMC DLC
Posted by: mattjeh - 23 Dec 2020, 23:07 - Forum: General Discussions on the DOC / Car / Company / JZD - Replies (12)

Hi all. So I'm still working on becoming an owner for the first time but in the meantime always looking to increase my general DeLorean knowledge base. I'm much more on the basic end of capable in terms of mechanics so I know I have a lot to learn moving forward.

Does anyone have any experience with the DeLorean DLC for Car Mechanic Simulator 2015? How accurate approximately is it compared to the real thing? Obviously it's just a game and is not the same as getting your hands dirty for real but would it be a real benefit for a starter prospective DeLorean owner?

I've been eying buying it on steam for a while, but today I just noticed it's on 90% sale, so I just spent £1.88 in total for the 2015 game and DMC DLC. I call that a bargain?

So, is it just a game as it's just a game? Or is it actually helpful in learning how to maintain and keep a real DeLorean? If the former, I'll give it a go and drop it after a few hours. If the latter, I'll take it a bit more seriously. It'll just be good to know going into it.

Thanks all.

Well after what can only be described as a pretty sh*tty year, with the global pandeminc, 
economic crisis, jobs lost, businesses gone to the wall, events cancelled, etc, lets all hope
for a better 2021 and look forward to celebrating 40 years of the DMC-12 and 25 years of
the DeLorean Owners Club UK.

I'd like to wish you all a safe and peaceful festive season, and send good wishes for the new year.

  Hello and looking to view a Delorean (Scotland)
Posted by: carsandbikes - 30 Nov 2020, 13:12 - Forum: New member? Say hello :) - Replies (4)

Hi folks,

Like you all, I have been an avid DMC fan since my youth. Having dreamed of one of these cars for 20 odd years, I am now almost in a position to make a purchase. Probably going to be going down the project road but realise after much reading that I could find myself in a rather expensive rabbit hole. A classic car dealer friend has suggested before even getting serious about buying I should really see one up close and get some expert advice from an owner on the pros and cons of being a delorean keeper. 

I am up in Scotland (Dundee), so if there is anyone up North who would be kind enough to let me come and have a look/chat or better still someone who may be prospectively selling? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Best wishes,

James
