Photo: A Rosy DeLorean

There are some things that plenty of people can recognize, are intimately familiar with, without ever having seen the real deal--this happened to me with parts of Los Angeles, given the sheer number of movies filmed there. It's also the case with the DeLorean DMC-12, probably the most well-known car of the last forty years that most people have never seen outside of a television or movie screen.

I went through my whole life without seeing a DeLorean up close and personal until I made it to Portland last month. My visit intersected with the Starlight Parade of the Portland Rose Festival, so I checked it out. I didn't expect to find a DeLorean near the front of the pack, decked out in neon in all its gull-winged glory. The flux capacitor is probably done up in the same way.
