1 year on ......... loving it

Postby Dave M » Thu Oct 11, 2018 10:18 pm

Well it’s now been exactly 12 months since i travelled from Fishguard to Rosslare and then met my friend john on Irish soil who then drove me to Dublin to meet the guy that was selling the car - it’s a 2 hour journey so dark when we got there but car was located in an underground car park under a rather expensive tower block of flats - it looked ok - all panels were really good apart from a slight crease on the edge of the grooved bonnet - he seemed very keen to sell as he kept saying “ make me an offer “ which I did but I said I would give him a definite answer in the morning - after a few pints of the dark stuff and a kebab and just a couple of hours sleep before catching the ferry back in the early hours the following morning - so a very mad 20 hours but well worth it as I’m now the proud owner of donedeal Delorean 5345 - here are some pics taken throughout the year - pics of the car in Dublin - on the ferry back of a gypsies truck to bring it from ferry port to home ( only 8 miles ) big thank you to Stuart Rees who came down to do the few odd jobs to get it through the MOT
hopefully the pics should load ok

No handbrake so needed some help on the ferry to stop it from rolling on the rough sea crossing

Ahhh so that's where that car was from, your car was used on one of the national broadcasters radio station over here - 2fm.. Nicky Byrne from westlife was presenting the show and did a wee video on you tube of him getting a drive in it and pulling away from the station.. This was done live on air while his Co presenter didn't really know what was happening..
Nice one!
Also saw it twice in Dublin city in 2 different locations on back to future future day couple of years back!...
The exhaust, is that a magna flow system or one of Hervey s kits?
Cheers

Thanks for the info - I have the promotional video of the Delorean driving into Dublin town centre - quite a good video - looks like some work went into that - the laptop repair company BACK FROM THE FUTURE were moving to a bigger premises hence the reason for sale
Can't see nothing on YouTube regarding Nicky Byrne driving the car
Yes it's a crazy exhaust - don't think any of my neighbours are very keen on it !!!!
