The mid 80's were the year of the Delorean. Said to be the worst car ever made still wound up being in all of the Back to the Future movies. In 2007 just 6500 of the 81-83 model DMC-12 Delorean were said to still exist. The car was intended to have a Wankle Rotary Engine but ended up with a 6 cylinder. Hatch back and suicide wing doors were two things that were wanted, but didnt work out very well due to leakage of water as well as air. The 6 cylinders were unreliable and nobody seemed to be happy with them. The only reason that they are as well known as they are today is because of Back to the Future where the car is a time machine. For 70k one can buy a perfect replica of the car from the movie, even so, it will still be junk.
