    Media Coverage - Popular Mechanics, May 1982 - Owners Report: DeLorean

    Having a trash picking neighbor pays off. I often get the coolest things. One day I came home to a box of about 40 Popular Mechanics magazines from the 70's & 80's. Hours of good reading & entertainment and to boot there were 2 of the 3 issues that had features on the DeLorean.

    It is really interesting and surprisingly positive at times compared to other articles I have read.


    If the dmctalk website downsizes the attached PDF to be unreadable it can be seen on the DCO site as long as it remains to exist here: PopularMechanics_May_1982-LR.pdf

    The March of 1983 article is in a separate post. There is also a June 1981 issue with the DeLorean on the cover - that one was not included in the box.
