Back to the Future DeLorean To Go Back to Storage in Ireland

Another of the rare 1981 DeLoreans, one of which played a starring role in Steven Spielberg’s Back to the Future movies, changed hands in Ireland this week. At first, the famous DeLorean was put up for auction on July 2 at auctioneer Bonham’s “Goodwood Festival of Speed,” but it did not sell that day. Finally, car collector Michael Gallagher of Crossmolina, in Mayo County, Ireland bought it directly from the previous owner, Miranda Guinness, the Countess of Iveagh. Gallagher is showing the DeLorean in the Mayo Old Engine and Tractor Club Show this Sunday. Then he will put it into a secure storage facility with the rest of his car collection. [More]
