In the run-up to our 30th birthday and to celebrate this month’s Back to the Future Day, we had our very own special visitor join us at the Carole Nash offices earlier this week – an original DeLorean DMC-12! Famous for being the car used by Doc and Marty to travel back and forwards in time, the DeLorean is an automotive and design classic.
Only 9,000 DMC-12s were made by the DeLorean Motor Company, and we were so excited to have one at our offices. Alas, we didn’t try driving it, afterall, we did’t want anyone reaching 88MPH by accident and ruining the space time continuum!
This particular car is owned by Dave Howarth, the Honorary Club President of the DeLorean Owners club and has been seen on Top Gear several times down the years. Although the DeLorean parked up outside our office wasn’t owned by Doc and Marty, it was owned by another 80s icon, Duran Duran bassist John Taylor. So while we’re not expecting to find any hoverboards under the seats, there may be a few stray plectrums.
To get involved you can always do a bit of traveling at your desk and click the ‘Back the 80s’ button at the top of our homepage (www.carolenash.com) and see what the site would have looked like back in 1985, the year we first started.
Now please excuse us, we must make like a tree, and get out of here.
