Andrew S 1981 Delorean

Show Up In Style

A woman had contacted me to rent my Delorean for her wedding as a surprise to her finance. After discussing fees she said they couldn’t fit it in the budget. Finally, Jack emailed me with enthusiasm to just see the car while here in Las Vegas from Australia. I recognized his love for the car and told him if he just paid for the gas, I’d show up. Finally the day came and I went to the place where we had discussed to meet. But only Jack’s friends had shown. On his wedding day, Jack had been so busy with wedding details he couldn’t make the meeting spot. I was so happy for Jack (a complete stranger mind you) that I asked his friends which hotel he was staying at. I drove to that hotel, completely surprised Jack and drove him from the Las Vegas Strip to Red Rock Canyon, arriving just in time for his guests to see him show up in style at his wedding. So thankful, Jack invited me as a guest in the wedding to which afterwards he had many pictures with his new wife and the car. If I recognize the passion I have for the car, I’ll go the extra mile no matter the cost to make someone’s day special because of my 1981 DMC-12 Delorean.

    The distance from the LV Strip to Red Rock Casino, is not a short drive. I'm sure Jack really appreciated you going so far out of your way, as well as taking the time.

    See this is how DeLorean owners are. They see others with the love, and they make it happen. :) Great story!
