Beautiful RARE stock certificate #1 from Sterling Energy Systems Corporation issued in 1980. This historic document has an
ornate border around it with a vignette of an eagle. This item is hand signed by the Company’s President, John Z. De Lorean and Secretary, Thomas W. Kimmerly and is over 37 years old. Thomas W. Kimmerly was also the Executive Vice president and Treasurer of the Parent Company, DeLorean Motor Corporation.
The certificate was issued to BKM, Inc. Sterling Energy Systems Corporation was a company that was owned by De Lorean and was affiliated with De Lorean Motors. Possibly related to the Stirling Engine program.
John DeLorean's sports car was a radical roadster with a stainless steel body and exotic gull-wing doors. DeLorean was an auto industry legend for designing the hotrod Pontiac GTO and for his fast rise through the ranks at General Motors. He quit GM in 1973 and later formed the DeLorean Motor Company. The DeLorean car debuted in 1981; by 1983 financial difficulties had doomed the company and it closed down after building fewer than 10,000 cars. John DeLorean was arrested in 1982 and charged with smuggling cocaine to raise money, though he was later acquitted after accusing the government of entrapment.
The DeLorean car got a huge boost when it was driven by actor Michael J. Fox in the 1985 film Back to the Future.
