ĒFor my 21st birthday I knew a surprise had been arranged but I had no idea what it was or exactly how good it was going to be. At around 11am I went to the front door to find someone with a video camera standing there. Then all I could hear was an almighty roar of an engine racing down the road. What happened next is a complete blur. The car, which Iíve dreamt about and loved since watching the Back To The Future films as a child, pulled into my driveway and it looked even better than I had ever imagined.
Still in a state of shock, owner Chris introduced himself and Jonny and explained we were going for a drive, wherever and as long as I wanted. I couldnít wait to get in the DeLorean and go on the drive of a lifetime. After having a few pictures taken with the car and having had a good look round we set off on the journey. I certainly wasnít disappointed as there were so many onlookers who waved and couldnít take their eyes off the car, making me feel like a celebrity. Chrisí knowledge of the car was impeccable; answering every question I asked and explaining so much about his car and the history of the company. I learnt a lot from him in such a short time.
I was disappointed that the day had to end but itís going to be very hard to forget an experience like that, especially with all the pictures we took and in particular, the fantastic DVD Jonny put together. Iím now more infatuated with the car than I ever have been. Thanks again Chris and Jonny for a perfect, unforgettable day. I really appreciate the time and effort you put in, especially for having to travel so far. A special thank you to my friend Becky who arranged the whole thing for me; it was the best birthday surprise I could have wished for and Iíll always be grateful.Ē - Tom Morris
