    SpecialTauto / Delorean Auto Parts Closed?!?!

    Happy Fourth everyone.

    I just tried to go to Johnís website to purchase some things.

    https://www.deloreanautoparts.com/contact-us.html

    It says itís closed due to a family illness. I hope and prayer everything works out for John. I am wondering if anyone has any information or when it may reopen.

    If that's true, that's a real shame. I know a lot of people give John the business over the quality of some of the things he sells but he definitely has his own place within the DeLorean market. I hope all is well.

    Just caught wind via social media that John Hervey died today. Thanks for your contributions, John, and Godspeed.
