DeLorean DMC-12 Down On The New York StreetS

This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. Not many DeLorean owners painted their cars' stainless-steel exteriors; this is a rare find indeed.

DeLorean DMC-12 Down On The New York StreetS

I've got the DMC-12 on my mind these days, after seeing Evil Clint's DeLorean doing pace car duty at the 2009 Arse Freeze-a-Palooza 24 Hours Of LeMons. Yes, Clint has his Northern Irish import running just fine now!

So, on to the cool shots taken by Brownie for us:

This was parked a few weeks ago on 7th Avenue, between 12th & 13th. Circumstances were such that I was only able to take 3 shots, and in retrospect they're not the 3 shots I would have taken if I had more time to think about it. Also, it was at night and I didn't have a flash - c'est la vie.

But whatever - it's a DeLorean! It's a much smaller car in real life than I imagined. The photos do not do justice to how ridiculously small it looked in comparison to 7th Avenue traffic - the minivan in the first photo looks tall next to it, but in person it seemed like the DeLorean might get run over.
