    I found it on another page, but I couldn't share it on my phone. Was from Mac Trybul's post onto the DMC page.

    Excellent shot of Patrick!

    His wife still owns the Delorean. It pops up every now and then at DMC CA. His brother in law has a Delorean as well!

    Here's another pic:



    I remember seeing a quote somewhere along the lines of how when Swayze finally made it, he celebrated with buying himself a DeLorean. Too lazy to look it up right now.

    I don't always drive cars, but when I do, I prefer DeLoreans

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    Yeah, but it's only part of it. He spoke very highly of the car, and it was his trophy of finally making it.

    He really liked his car, was even driving it to film sets in the early 2000's, as I spoke to a director who worked on a film with him and he told me stories about how Patrick drove it to set everyday. And yes, his brother-in-law owns one and is active on this forum.
