A picture I took of my Delorean and some supercars that attended a local car show made it to the front page of reddit for a short time recently.

Some of the comments were dismissive of the Delorean, many had misunderstood or completely wrong information about the car.

The car isn’t heavy it’s only 2700-2900 lbs, almost every car in 1981-1983 were slow and bogged down by new emission laws, the top speed was around 140 mph, only the outer panels were stainless steel most of the car is fiberglass, John Delorean never went to jail and was aquitted on all charges, the engine is PRV (Peugeot, Renault, Volvo) v6 and is dependable with regular maintenance, and it doesn’t handle like shit it has a frame designed by Colin Chapman of Lotus.
