Zee’s ability to nab the DeLorean diecast license from under Mattel’s nose will forever be remembered as one of the great diecast legends. While a little rough around the edges, they did a fine job recreating the infamous aluminum, gullwing, (sometimes time-traveling) DMC DeLorean.

This particular diecast is a bit of a grail car for me. I had one of these as a kid and I wrecked the living snot out of it... effectively breaking off both doors. A somewhat common fate for these cars. It was pretty hard to find a nice one on the bay of ees. Fortunately, a mixed lot of playworn diecast cars popped up and this one was mixed in the wreckage. Since both doors were intact I bid away and gave this once-loved Zee a new home.
