A rare stainless steel DeLorean sports car, made famous from the Back to the Future movie trilogy, was on display at SummerGate Winery in Summerland on July 11.
The car was on display for one of three Back to the Future-themed wine events. The event was called Back in Time with SummerGate Wines and featured Rieslings from 2014 to 2018. Other Back to the Future-themed wine tastings are scheduled for July 18 and July 25.
The DeLorean, owned by Guy Henley of Summerland, was one of around 9,200 of the cars produced from 1981 to 1983.
The sports car was the only automobile model built by the company.
Henley purchased a DeLorean sports car from the Lower Mainland, where it had been stored in a barn and was covered in dust.
Around 10 years later, he sold the car, but felt disappointed after that sale.
The car he now owns was purchased from Connecticut.
When Henley bought the car, it had 5,000 miles, or around 8,000 kilometres. Today, it has around 13,000 miles or 21,000 kilometres.
“It’s so unique and it has the gull-wing doors, which were so attractive to me,” he said.
This time, he is not interested in selling the car and has turned down offers on it.
