    Ty DeLorean, Son of John DeLorean and the DMC-21

    Apologies in advance, as I searched the forum to see if there have been previous posts made about this, but came up empty.

    Can anyone shed some light on who this guy thinks he is, and what he's trying to pull?

    https://www.tiktok.com/@tydelorean

    Someone mentioned him on the DeLorean subreddit, and he claims to be the biological son of John DeLorean, and is building his own DMC-21. While I don't have a TikTok account myself to read any comments, posts on the DeLorean subreddit say that when people call him out for being a fraud and a liar, he says "see you in court".

    Seriously, who is this guy? How does he think anyone in the DeLorean community would even fall for such an obvious scam?

    The conclusion that I have come to is he is either a con or a total nutjob that thinks he is the illegitimate offspring of JZD. He is taking Reliant Robins and chopping them up to create gullwing doors and decorating the Reliant Robins to look like a DeLorean on the front and rear bumpers.

    His Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tydelorean/

    The guy is an asshole in my opinion. Zach and Kat don't need this shit.

    That's the million dollar question, isn't it? Is this a con job or some delusional whack job who believe what he says?

    He's also go a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ben.granger.940, which judging my the URL, his real name is probably Ben Granger.

    I find people like this utterly fascinating, especially if they believe they can actually convince others of such a farce.

    I assume this is some kind of joke/performance art. He's probably racking up the views and laughing all the way to the bank. (People get paid for having tons of views on TikTok, right? I mean why else would they make asses of themselves in front of a million people?)

    My VIN:    I respect my vin enough not to whore it out among the masses.

    Anyone that can sell a Reliant Rialto for $25k, deserves a little credit.

    I'm interested in the DNA test he says he is willing to take. The more words out of his mouth, related or not, it looks more like just attention grabbing.

    LOL...I can imagine the conversation at DMCH

    Looks like he's using a Robin.

    That could seriously compete with us, especially in reliability and build quality.

    Better get in front of this ASAP!
