    Vin 502 twin turbo legend

    This can only be described as an awesome DeLorean Day. Had the pleasure of meeting fellow DeLorean Custodian and Owner Alistair Mansell this afternoon in Wellington and exchanging stories of trials and tribulations as well a many fun moments of keeping these Stainless Steel beauties on the road. While in Upper Hutt, New Zealand I was able to see VIN 502, the famous Twin Turbo Legend DeLorean and another D at a garage called Bristols where these were undergoing some work. The lady on reception was very kind to let me take a photo and have a wander around. What a treat! Apart from my own D these are the only two I have seen in person. Cheers Alastair and thank you.

    Someone who does not respect other peoples property attempted to break into VIN 502 and steal something is my understanding of why she was there. An amazing car with quite a history.

    Wow, congrats on getting to see this rare car. What luck!

    Sad to hear that it was vandalized. Some people are idiots. Most people are respectful, but it only takes one. When my car is out of the garage, it rarely levels my sight unless there is a security presence or a trusted friend there to watch it.

    Same here, I do not leave my DeLorean without someone keeping an eye on her. It only takes one idiot!
