2. DeLorean Motor Co. was started by Wynne’s father. Wynne bought the company’s remaining parts and began re-manufacturing the car in 2006 with remaining parts and donor cars. He said:
“I’ve grown up around DeLoreans my entire life. I was dropped off to kindergarten in the actual ‘Back to the Future’ car. A DeLorean was my first car at age 16. ‘Back to the Future’ has been a huge part of the business. The car is so well known from a 90-year-old person to a 4-year-old because of that movie. That shows how timeless the car and the brand is.”
