Few cars captivate quite like the DeLorean. While it was far from the perfect sports car, John DeLorean’s ever-stylish DMC-12 has enjoyed a lifetime of pop culture appeal – no doubt thanks to Marty McFly – making the prospect of snapping up an all-original, low-mileage survivor quite the task.
Yesterday, Kim Kardashian tried to break the Internet after going buns out on the cover of Paper Magazine. While she didn’t succeed (thankfully), she did manage to get the whole world wide web talking about it and Googling her. And that got me thinking …
Kim’s butt is nice but there are plenty of prettier cabooses in the automotive world. Don’t believe me? Check out this list (click on the links to see more bootylicious photos):
This 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 is set to go up for auction later this month. It may just be your best chance of getting that time machine you’ve been dreaming of for years. Sadly, there does not appear to be a flux capacitor in this one so you’ll be on your own unless you can track down Doc for a little assist.
The rumors are constantly flooding into our inboxes of cars X, Y and Z being revived with hybrid powertrains, all-wheel drive and a bunch of other claims that no one can really back up. But can you blame them? Of course I’d like to see a new Supra with 500 horsepower, or an RX-7 with twin-rotaries and a six-speed. For the most part though, we take these rumors with a grain of salt.
The 1980s was a great era for epic movie cars. We associate certain cars with films almost more than the actors in those same flicks. Thinking about the ECTO-1 or a flying, time-traveling DeLorean just makes us nostalgic about Ghostbusters or Back to the Future. So imagine when an artist combined those icons with another staple from the 1980s– Transformers.
Macklemore is a strange character. He shops at the thrift stores, Instagram’s his apologetic text messages, and sometimes hangs out with old women (which you can see below). But that doesn’t mean we don’t like the guy. In fact, far from it.
When he and Ryan Lewis hit the scene back in 2012 with the album ‘The Heist,’ the label-less duo took the rap game by storm. Quirky lines and catchy beats made him an overnight sensation.
Halloween is this Wednesday, though if you’re like most people, it started last night with the first of the serious Halloween parties. For a stone cold one year old boy (Cooper), and his equally cool mom (Cory), the Halloween festivities began by becoming a duo of internet superstars. And that was all thanks to mama’s imagination, love of cars and bit of handy craftsmanship.
This 1981 DeLorean DMC12 5-Speed is on eBay through June 18th (the current bid is US $22,000)
