    Bricklin had an amc 360 v8 which had like 180bhp and later had a 351 ford windsor with 175bhp

      I still prefer the bricklin. Maybe it lost in this video but the bricklin is a completely COOLER car

          The Bricklin could also be a kit-car at-purchase, and given the fiberglass not liking the Canadian cold - that probably wasn't a bad idea for a car builder-customer in warmer climes.

                        An updated interior and a better engine in that Bricklin would make that car amazing. And get rid of those hydronic lifts! Such a nice body on that car..

                          The inaccurate (wrong) statements add to the "charm" of this video. 🙂 Gull-wing doors were just a design gimmick that does not improve either of these cars, but adds to their historical mystique. If the Delorean had shipped with a 200+ hp engine it would have been more popular. There are a bunch of modified Deloreans with plenty of power and thus a lot more fun to drive. The Bricklin can be improved with a better engine and trans, but the body and interior are more like a kit car. When I first saw one it reminded me of the plastic bodies and DIY interior you could bolt to a VW chassis. Ever seen an Aquila by American Fibre Craft?

                              Malcomn Bricklin, the man whose mission in life was to make everyone walk to work and John DeLorean, the man who developed the Pntiac Fiero which should have been named the Fuego for it's tendency to spontaneously combust.

                                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.

                                                              You could time both of these in the 1/4 mile with a calendar.  I raced a DMC-12 in high school with a 1982 Chevy S-10 V6 5sp. Not even close. Marty would never get to 88mph.
