Fred Dellis speaks about his experiences with DeLoreans

 
 

Just before dinner we heard from our guest speaker Fred Dellis.  Fred was the owner of Legend Industries which was the company responsible for making the turbo engine for the DeLorean.  Only a handful of cars with these engines are ever made.
As we sat and listened to Fred recollect all his experiences and stories about John DeLorean you could easily image what it must have been like to
bare witness to the automotive history that happened right before him.
Fred was an excellent speaker, and he was kind enough to answer many of our questions.  Below you will find video clips of his speech.  Sorry about the quality.... our video camera acted up on us that night so I had to capture these clips with my digital camera.
