DeLorean would provide some 2,500 jobs in a suburb of Belfast (one of the UK's worst unemployment areas); the government, through the Northern Ireland Development Agency, would provide a factory site, a mixture of grants and convertible loans to build and equip the factory, and substantial working capital - the whole deal totaling almost $100 million.full article
"Take a look at that huge ass! If this thing couldn't get you through the swamps, I don't know what could. The design of the bumper guards is very classy and helps continue the original lines of the DeLorean."

The material is produced by a process known as Elastic Reservoir Molding (ERM) and involves the fabrication of a foam/resin/fiberglass composite sandwich bounded under heat and pressure. ERM is tough stuff and under one name or another enjoys wide-spread use in boats and aircraft.full article
"This car/truck was professionally upgraded with a 12-inch lift kit on top of 44-inch tires. The underbody is very clean, and was sprayed with a truck bed liner spray. Notice the engine in the front, which is a Chevrolet 350 V8 Engine. To see more of this car, visit my sister site on Rich's projects here."
