This Bricklin still has original hydraulic door system which is junk. The air door system works much better and doors open and close in about 2 seconds, compared to the 8 seconds for the hydraulic system. Also, the '75 Bricklins have no power in the Ford 351 which is 175hp compared to the '74 Bricklins with the AMC 360 which has 220hp. Bricklins weigh nearly 4,000 lbs, which very heavy for a car its size because of the steel wrap around frame. Would like to see a factory manual '74 Bricklin used in this video instead, but are hard to come by, as about 122 manual cars out of 772 during 1974. The Bricklin is the first car in automotive history to have self opening doors. Car makers of today are just now putting in some suv's and mini vans today. Neither car was intended to be fast and neither are. The Delorean is a copy cat off the Bricklin to begin with. To me, Bricklin has more flair and style and self opening doors at a touch of a button and roll down windows. A DeLorean has none of those. .Deloreans have nicer interiors and better body material though. I'd take both these cars over a boring ass Corvette any day. a car any has-been can have.

Bricklins are so rare now. I think less than 1700 of them exist still and only 3000 were ever made.

Weirdly, both the Bricklin and the DeLorean were originally conceived as "safety vehicles" (the original codename for the DeLorean was "DSV-12", later changed to DMC-12 and then dropped altogether), despite the fact that both designs had the automobile industry's second-most-questionable door type.* The Bricklin walked the walk a little better, with its weird bumpers and availability only in hi-vis "safety colors", but neither one was really particularly safer than any normal car, apart from being so underpowered they could barely go fast enough to be dangerous. * After suicide doors, which are cool, but called that for good reason.

First I'd like to say that it's really not a fair comparison, a 1980 car vs a 1975 car. Secondly even with its flaws ( and there are many) I still pick the bricklin because of how easy the car could be modified into something so much more having a basic front engine setup like most muscle cars.... and of which is being done with a lot of respectable muscle cars these days ( like standard drum to power disc brakes on cars like old chevelle and camaros etc ) ... theres not a lot of easy upgrading the performance on a rear engine Renault v6 that's in a Delorean now is there.?.. p.s. I do own a orange 75 sv1 Bricklin.

The DeLorean actually seemed relatively quick for its low horse power and age. Put some coil overs, better engine swap, maybe a turbo k20 swap or some other FWD engine/transmission combination so its all oriented right. some chassis stiffening, sway bars, and I think it would be a lot closer to the sports car John wanted when designing it.

I think you need to drive my Bricklin. There's something wrong with that one if it can't outrun a Delorean. The Bricklin was tested by Autoweek and it outperformed the 1975 Corvette in acceleration handling and breaking. Most Bricklins have been fitted with faster more reliable air powered doors and air powered headlights. That's the problem with all original Bricklins they need a few upgrades to make them a car you can drive all day. The upgrades don't take away from the originality it just makes them better. Once again I invite you to drive my Bricklin. 😎

I don't think it was clear if they were launching on the 3, 4, or 5 horn. If Hoover used the 4th horn to go, he is slightly slower than average (0.5 sec reaction). If he waited to see the Bricklin moving, he reacted in 0.25 sec, which is about half the reaction time of the average drag racer.

Deloreans are hopefully going to be made in 2019 again they will look the same however they will be new , with 300-400hp engines the problem with the original delorean being a flop was it was under powered , also the brakes upgraded with wider wheels needed , and air ducting will be changed

1st off I have seen people race these car before as a joke and the bricklin usually won. Probably cause your buddy can't drive or the car has issues. Which neither seem to be in a great condition so I suspect condition. If you're going to race ya gotta swap drivers to make sure it's the car that won.

its more fun to drive a slow vehicle fast than it is to drive a fast vehicle slow. By that i mean its more fun to drive a low horsepower slower car w a manual such as this delorean at regular speeds because you're gonna be grinding through those gears rather than driving a fast car like the 450hp vette he mentioned in highway speeds cuz u know the car is capable of much more

I can’t speak for the Bricklin but all 1980’s cars were slow as hell. The ‘82 Trams Am was so weak it is actually the worst Trans Am Pontiac ever made. Knight Rider was the only thing that saved it from being forgotten. The DeLorean was weak because the early ‘80’s where a shameful time for sports cars everywhere.

I'd take the stock engine out of the Bricklin, store it properly for the next buyer/auction, and replace it with a modified 351 Windsor. Put in a 351 which made 500 horsepower NA (even better is a 351 with EFI and centrifugal supercharger). I'd also take the 3 speed transmission out (probably a Ford C6, maybe FMX), store it right, and put in a Ford AOD with a shift kit. Gear the rear axle right and that "safety car" could easily do 12 second quarter miles while still be a street car.

Malcolm Bricklin and John DeLorean are not unusual, no Trump comparison necessary, you smug little asswipe.

The Bricklin is faster than the Delorean all things being equal. But as far as looking "cool"- it is until the headlights pop up, then it looks like Groucho Marx.

one of the best reviews of both cars I've ever seen! Great footage, respectful but honest commentary and a funny - real life resembling - competition. Thanks a lot! There is so much bad reviews about the De Lorean, that I can't really agree with. Just because an affordable car looked like a Super Sports car doesn't mean it has to perform like one. It was a respectable approach - seems to have been quite usable in everyday life with really unique details. I think I would like the design even if it had never been the movie star. Its kind 'a cool looking from every angle, sitting flat on the street with its nice tail lights. Pretty timeless design!

Former DeLorean owner here; bought new and driven for 8 years and 26,000 miles. I did not experience most of the problems the car supposedly had; in fact the only real "problem" was that yes, the straight-line performance did not match the looks. I had a turbo installed in mine - helped a lot at speed, but not off the line, of course. It didn't matter that it wouldn't win any races; what mattered was that everywhere you went people were gaga over it, and when you left it parked it would usually be covered with fingerprints when you got back - people had to feel that stainless steel finish. If you know the story about the cocaine sting the FBI did on John DeLorean, you'll appreciate the vanity plate I then put on it: "SNORT", along with a frame that said "Things Go Better With Coke". Believe it or not I never got stopped, although I was careful to never carry anything that looked like white powder in the car. (The D.O.T. finally did cancel it after somebody complained, but I still have it.)

Because hydraulic doors WERE original and they sucked. Most have been converted to air.

And then you still get wet driving down the road because Bricklin's had a horrible reputation for leaking.
