De Lorean, the 80’s Belfast car manufacturer became a household name after their car’s appearance in Back to the Future. The name is instantly recognisable to a whole generation of people. Unfortunately the De Lorean company had already folded before those films were released.
The car above is the De Lorean DMC-12, the only model the company built. It stopped in front of us while we were having a picnic and I heard a woman across the road saying, “That’s the Back to the Future car!”
Lots more to be found on the Wikipedia page on the car.
Shot in Timoleague, Co Cork about a week ago.

I’m going to break out my Back to the Future DVD set and watch all 3 tonight me thinks 🙂
November 5th 1955!
That is so cool.
I’m no car buff but I was a teenager when the BTTF films came out, I’d love to see one of these.
Shame it didn’t have all the gubbins sticking out the back… 🙂
Drool! First thing I would be buying with the lotto, if I won!
I remember those cars being made in Dunmurray right beside Jack’s office. Seeing the name Makro on the building now as I drive along the M1 somehow doesn’t have the same ring to it!
I like the face wash Donncha! 😉
that is the coolest photo i’ve seen on this site! – this should get an “uber-cool” tag
I always remember the DeLorean due to the cocaine trafficking charges brought against DeLorean himself, and the subsequent jokes made about the hollow doors in the cars (ideal for smuggling).
