24-karat gold-plated 1981 DeLorean DMC 12 at the Petersen Automotive Museum

Three DeLoreans were 24-karat gold-plated for an American Express promotion and listed in their Christmas catalog for $85,000. The gold DeLorean at the Peterson (04301) was displayed in the lobby of the Snyder National Bank in Snyder, Texas from the time it was purchased (by Roger Mize, President of the Bank) in 1981, until it was donated (or sold) to the Petersen Automotive Museum in 2004. It had traveled a mere 7.4 miles since new and remains in entirely original condition.
