Back to the Future comes to Dorset as Deloreans go on tour

Bournemouth Echo: ON SHOW: Matt Woodhall inspects a rare red painted DeLorean ON SHOW: Matt Woodhall inspects a rare red painted DeLorean

A FLEET of DeLorean cars made famous in the Back to the Future films had jaws dropping as they toured round Dorset.

More than a dozen of the iconic cars with their gull wing doors came together at the Bovington Tank Museum on Saturday as the DeLorean Owners Club rolled into Dorset.

Treasurer of the club Claire Usher said DeLorean owners travelled from as far as Manchester, Nottinghamshire and Kent to attend the event and they all thoroughly enjoyed their time in Dorset, not least because of the fantastic weather they enjoyed during their trip.

After meeting at the Tank Museum and getting many admiring glances from passers-by, the club members enjoyed a tour of the facility.

Claire said: “We had a fantastic time and we had a very interesting tour around the museum as well, it’s a fascinating place.”

Following their stop at the museum, the DeLorean owners made their way down to Lulworth Cove, turning people,s heads as they wound their way through the villages of Purbeck. On Sunday they went to Kingston Lacy.

I think the only thing jaw dropping is that someone would paint a DeLorien........I can't think of anything that would devalue the car faster?

Could hardly believe my eyes... a DeLorean on the road. Just saw the one, a silver grey model. My wife insisted, while we are at a distance, that it wasn't a DL. I just knew you couldn't mistake that low, unique profile. Didn't realise it there were several on their way to Kingston Lacy
