Baby, You Can Drive His Car

(Starts at 8:30)

The story of John DeLorean should have been made into a movie years ago. He was an engineering maverick with General Motors, credited with inventing the muscle car. He was featured in magazines, he dated supermodels, and even had plastic surgery to enlarge his chin. He later founded the DeLorean Motor Company, which was made famous through the "Back To The Future" car. DeLorean then lost everything following an attempt to traffic cocaine. A new docu-drama by Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce, titled “Framing John DeLorean,” explores his life and tries to explain why a film about his life hadn't been made until today.
