Ty DeLorean says his cars are attracting those looking to conquer the Afghan countryside.
Ty DeLorean's story is strange. We first heard his name when we learned that a man who claims to be John DeLorean's long-lost son, although we can't confirm this anywhere, is being sued for trademark infringement by a Texas company that owns the rights to the DeLorean trademark Motor Company owns. Now he claims that the replica three-wheeled cars resembling the time machine cars are viewed by none other than the Taliban.

Ty was accused of attempting to pass off his three-wheeled prototypes as legitimate DeLorean vehicles. He claims film companies, automakers and the Taliban all approached him to get their hands on the cars in question. Ty said he received an email from the barbaric militant group expressing interest in and praise for his accomplishments.
"They emailed me and said they wanted to invest in my cars and mass produce them," Ty explained. "They want to use them for government officials and they said the head of the Taliban, Hibatullah Akhundzada, signed it and I'm dealing with his deputy and the transport minister now."
Afghan Minister of Transport Qudratullah Zaki apparently told Ty: “The Civil Aviation of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan compliments you and your brilliant Delorean Motor Company motor vehicle.
“Your amazing accomplishments were brought to my attention in your recent media interviews, which went around the world and landed on my desk in a local paper.
"LTA would like to encourage investment in your company as we have strong links with rural markets and believe India is already interested in your product."
The email states that Ty's cars would be ideal for the streets of Afghanistan. To which Ty thinks, "In my ambition, which sometimes outstrips reality, I'd like to see the vehicle as a symbol of peace, if you will, like my father's was. It could be used to negotiate with the Taliban and get them to give up some of their tough stances, and if they did, maybe I could.”
o a three-wheel DeLorean replica could be the new Hilux in the Taliban, interesting.
