Way to go Oliver. Don't EVER let ANYone stop you from living your life. I too was diagnosed with nearly always fatal esophagus cancer in 2008. And you know what I have done to reward myself? I started attending Amelia Island Concours! Had many great times there. Greatest show to attend if you have one to choose. That grey hotel in background one of my friends stayed at that flew over from Shanghai to attend the show with me. Sadly, this year I am not there today. But hope to be back in the future.
I spent 3 years building a 1/8 scale replica and fitting it out with electronics. The car is amazing and I have the same dream, to create a full size replica. Bravo! The Michael J. Fox foundation is a worthy cause and I can think of no better way to support it. Congratulations on beating cancer and everything you have accomplished since. Life is short, live your dreams. Cheers!
This car is amazing (the occupants are amazing too)... We drive the AIOB in a let's say "SPIRITED" fashion. This ultra high mileage attention grabber (you might get more attention if you dressed up like Ronald McDonald and drove around in an Oscar Meyer Wiener-Mobile) had no problem keeping up with the fleet of Porsches and various other sports cars on the twistiest of twisties. It was a riot to ride behind them through the little towns of Appalachia and watch people do double takes and spit takes. All for a great cause as well. Parkinson's hits home for me: My friend Kerry Sinclair died from complications of Parkinson's Disease. The Michael J Fox Foundation wants to go out of business... That will mean Parkinson's Disease is defeated.
I was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at the age of 13. My parents were told that I would not graduate from high school. I am now almost 74 and I still don't understand how my doctors would know I wouldn't graduate from high school. (Just kidding.)
What a great couple and a great, heartwarming story. Congratulations Oliver. Well done! May you live many days into the future!!! Also, I really hope that you met Michael J. Fox. I hear he's a terrific person!
I'm sure they are experts in the DeLorean driveline as well as the movies. Thankfully all the running gear parts are commonly available, you just have to know what makes and models John Z. sourced them from.
I love the Delorean cars, and it is on my list if I can ever get the mortgage paid off! I was diagnosed with cancer in 2011. Based on the statistics, I had between 2 and 5 years to live. But, praise be to God, I am still going strong and my doctor says there is no reason I won't live another 20 years! Maybe one day I can go to a car show and park next to the Hollers!
19+ years Cancer survivor. I had it in 2001-2002. Bought my Supra after beating it. Time-Machine Delorean's are such silly things and that is why we love them. Love the owner's positive outlook on life.
Great down to earth couple. I met them a few years ago during the Celebration Exotic Car Festival, FL, and they were a pleasure to meet. They had great things to say about the Delorean owners there. Being a Delorean owner myself, its great to see such ambassadors for a the cause and see them again on another adventure I see.
