The GM Heritage Center
AeroVette, the last Vette showcar overseen by John DeLorean before he quit GM. Silver, gullwing doors, engine in the back. Hmmm, interesting...
The GTO, another DeLorean creation.
The GM Heritage center is filled with incredible cars. Here is the amazing turbine-powered Firebird III.
DeLorean's childhood home on Marx Street in Detroit. Humble beginnings.
John DeLorean grew up on this street. Decades later it is filled with cars bearing his name, and people visiting his birthplace.
DeLoreans line the street in front of the old GM Headquarters building on West Grand Blvd. DeLorean ran Pontiac and Chevrolet from these offices.
Inside the beautiful art deco lobby.
DeLorean's bachelor pad from the 70's, located in Bloomfield Hills.
The home John shared with model Kelly Harmon, his wife. This home is also located in Bloomfield Hills.
The Michigan DMC headquarters were located in this Bloomfield Hills office complex.
John DeLorean's final resting place is the White Chapel Cemetery in Troy, MI.
The DMC Tech Inspection was a great learning experience. Here Mike from DMC Midwest checks one car,while Dave inspects another one on the lift.
Our private room at dinner was almost standing-room only but a fun time was had by all. Great food, friends and conversation.
Our guest speakers, Jeff and Sue Synor, shared some amazing stories from their time working with John DeLorean.
They played a part in creating the car we have a passion about, the DeLorean.
The Dream Cruise was a great success. We had a reserved location On Woodward between 12 and 13 Mile Rds.
The DeLorean Motor Company brought several items for the event. Pictured below are the DeLorean frame and, on the left, the black car is the Stage III prototype. Its supercharged engine ensures that the DeLorean will go as fast as it looks!
On the left you can see the black composite underbody that DeLorean Motor Company brought for display. On the right is Monte's amazing Back to the Future time machine, always a crowd pleaser.
There were plenty of "regular" DeLoreans as well (if there is such a thing!). Cruisers and spectators were all interested to see the cars; many have never seen one up close, let alone an entire fleet in one location!
Of course there were thousands of amazing classic, muscle and strange cars to see. For more info on the cruise and many more images from that day, visit the Woodward Dream Cruise website via the link at the top of this page.
