His current driver was acquired in March of 2017.  It was bought new by BMX and Mongoose bicycle company founder Skipp Hess in Semi Valley California.  It was purchased and immediately send to  Los Angles California and was modified to be a custom show car for promotional use by Mongoose.  The customization included custom made cam shafts to increase the performance as well as a custom made header system.  The suspension was all removed and re-engineered.  In 1987, after 5 years of trade show and PR work the “Mongoose Delorean” was retired and sold to a retiring BMX/Mongoose engineer.  He periodically drove the car but mostly kept it in his car collection as an investment.  He passed away in 2005 and the car went to his son in Elkhart, Indiana.  He too was a car collector and kept the car rarely driving it.  After having it for 12 years, he decided to part with it as it was not of great interest to him and didn’t fit with the other cars in his collection.  After acquiring it, Jason Sharkey did the much needed service to the car and has been driving it ever since
