The Delorian! (1981)
Although it has been long forgotten by the mainstream world of automobile purchasers, a car from the latter year of 1981 was introduced to an American society with open arms. The car was the DMC-12 manufactured by DMC (DeLorian Motor Company). The name "DeLorian" came from John Z. DeLorian, the company's founder. The DeLorian was considered a landmark in construction and engineering by many, but others just considered it ugly. No matter what your opinion of its looks, the history that soon followed can not be ignored.
