During my previous visit I was lucky to accidentally find a classic car meet in Bingen. Most of the cars were 50's to 70's European classics. Probably the newest car of the meet was this DeLorean. It might as well be the only classic car of the 1980's, that decade is certainly not known of beautiful car designs.
DeLorean DMC-12 was built in 1981-1982 in Northern Ireland. Financially it was a disaster and DeLorean Motor Company ended in bankruptcy in 1982. DeLorean became legendary just a few years later in Back to the Future movie trilogy as a time machine of Dr. Emmett L. Brown.
Title Spread Your Wings, a Queen song from the album News of the World, 1977.

Cars may be the death of the planet, but what a wonderful way to go! For me, please let me go in the red Austin Healy in the background!
The stainless steel finish of the DeLorean presents a challenge for finding the right exposure, no? Do you overexpose and let it shine, or underexpose and feature the patina?
