Either Crain's Cleveland Business has a crawler looking for stories that contain "Cleveland"
or maybe there is just a DeLorean fan working there. A few type-o's in their story, but I
guess I cannot blame them too much, since the type-o's were in the source morphed story
from BoldRide.com The Crain's Cleveland Business article is listed below:
Back to the future: A meeting in Cleveland nearly 15 years ago turned Rick Weissensell, 50, into the nation’s leading authority
on making wrecked DeLoreans into entirely new cars, including limousines, convertibles and monster trucks.
BoldRide.com reports that Weissensell’s passion started when he met John DeLorean, founder of the company, at the Cleveland
DeLorean Car Show back in 2000.
“He shared his plans to create some wacky custom versions of the car with John who gave his blessing,” according to the story.
“That was all it took for Weissensell to let loose and start creating DeLoreans the likes of which you’ve never seen.”
He has a monster truck that he built in just under a month from a DeLorean and a wrecked K5 Blazer. There’s also a nearly 26-foot-long
limousine with three sets of gull-wing doors that are fully operational.
“As a true DeLorean enthusiast, Weissensell has one rule that he follows for all of his custom cars: he will not use working DeLoreans,
only wrecks,” BoldRide.com reports. “Because there were so few built, he doesn’t want to remove any working originals from service.
That limits him as to what he can build and when, but he says he’ll keep coming up with new designs for as long as he’s able.”
