    First off - I must apologise to the 28DL members who asked me previously check out the site of the DeLorean Car Plant that was closed over 25 years ago now in South Belfast.

    I did do a bit of research, and checked the site out from the Dunmurry side - as the old photos I had to go by were taken from there.

    The original car assembly plant is now in the ownership of a French firm that produces alloy wheels

    A little of the history - http://www.delorean-hire.co.uk/html/the_car___the_man.html

    When I researched this place before - i came across a video taken from within a DeLorean as it was driven around the test track on site.

    Today, I drove past on the Twinbrook side, on the way to pick up Irishmanlost.
    It must have been because of the lack of leaves on the trees - but I noticed a crash barrier and fence at a strange angle - my nose got the better of me and off i went to recce.

    Recce done - I sped off into Belfast to grab Irishmanlost and head back for an explore
