i just had back to the future trilogy marathon last night and by coincidence I see this interesting ad on top
Batmobile

what's everyone's consensus on BTTF delorean? And do you have one, Paul?
If my dream of owning 89 can't come true, then i wouldn't mind owning a BTTF Delorean.

I love the Back to the Future movies!!!
I liked the car and did a lot of research into possibly buying a Delorean. Then I saw a real one on the road and how small and uninteresting(?) it looked without the time machine parts.

My interest died that day. Probably a good thing too. Otherwise you'd see Delorean up there instead of 89.

i love the movie and the car, but i wont own one, if i bought one i would have to convert it, and id rather just not have the need to drill a bunch of holes though a stainless steel body.

i have one and its a good car but and i wouldnt want to put holes in it. but when i take it out the people still say (thats the car they used i bttf ) but if you were to get one get a good running one. and dont worry about the inside looks and you could get a good deal . your going to tear it up anyway and it would be cheaper to make it into a bttf car than restore it

A place about 30 miles away had a mint one I looked at buying 5 years ago. Great car and a great price. I also did a lot of research and I ran across a guy who did the whole conversion. He was very upfront that there is usually a good deal of work that you have to do just to get a car that old up to everyday driving shape. And as you can imagine, parts and mechanics aren;t that easy to come by. There is a great De Lorean shop in Texas that he took his to and he had to have a LOT done. Converting it into a movie car didn;t seem like it would be that tough. I've often thought it'd be a fun car to do as well. Certainly easier than an 89. But, I need that $$$ saved up for the 89

Of course!!!!

I live in Bridgewater. Home of John Delorean. The first Delorean dealership was right next to Bridgewater High-school West and my bus passed that place every day going to school. It was an awesome sight, a least a hundred Deloreans all parked next to each other. A few of them in color, but most of them were identical. Looked like a dealership with only one type and color car in it.

Also looked like a Miami car rental lot at the airport. Several hundred white compact cars.

You'll see his autograph in the background of the last TunerGirlz pic on the "Paul" thread. He was buying a barbeque grill a few summers ago and I ripped a sale tag off one and got him to sign it for me. Most of my BTTF props are on display at Star Cars, but you'll see some other stuff in the background of that pic. That used to be my BTTF wall at the shop.

But Deloreans used to be real cheap in this town. Most of the kids got one for grad back then. I bought my last one for only 5 grand.

I had one that flys...

Batmobile

One that drives...

Drilling the holes is no big deal actually. The hard part is taking a hammer to the quarter windows. My first few hits had the hammer bouncing off because I was trying to be "nice" to the car.

And of course, the bikes...


I had the original Griffmobile BMW 633 SI for awhile too. People who came to the shop always thought it was a custom Mustang because of the huge Harwood hood scoop.

I'll edit this post tomorrow night (don't have pics of it at the shop) and add a pic of that. (Sorry guys, no girls on that pic, it was sold before it was restored, so you'll have to hit www.bttfbmw.com to see what it looks like till tomorrow night.)

I also had one of the Ford probes. Sold it... still have an extra windshield hanging around and some other parts.

I did the restoration of the BTTF2 Hovertaxi that's owned by the guy who runs BTTF.com . The car was in really bad shape after some tornados that ripped through Universal Florida several years ago. Light rack was smashed, wheel covers busted up, antenna array destroyed. Was fun and really looks great today. Still have the molds if anyone needs futuristic taxi parts. (Again, no digital pics at the shop. Hundreds of stills here, but no scanner)

Been wanting that Police Hover car for the longest time. Still haven't cut a deal with the guy who owns it, but I will. The museum in Branson MO that is baby-sitting my helicopter is also sitting on the molds. He just called wanting a driveable 89 so that police car might be in my future.

One last BTTF thing...

My Toyota JP6 was in BTTF2...

Batmobile

It's parked down the street, facing away from the camera, when old Biff takes off with the flying Delorean.

So that's technically a Back to the Future car.

I'm doing some custom work to it and painting it dark charcoal (favorite color next to black) so it won't look like a BTTF car for long.

Yep,

Batmobile

I've owned 4 out of the 5 screen used cars. The remaining one is for sale in Ohio, but it's the jump car on a dune buggy chassis and is really a mess. He wants to sell it for the value of the COA. So in theory. you could cut it up, move the parts to a regular VW and STILL have an original car with docs.

I've been thinking about buying it just to be able to say; "I've owned all of them!" But not worth the time and cash right now.

I have one here at the shop that we've built for a client in Switzerland.

You just get a Manta Montage, cut it up, add the custom Coyote parts and monza tail lights and re-mount the doors and pull off the back window.

Not too hard, but a cool looking car.

Need one Rusty.

Hey Justin/Nate!

Remember the conversation we had about "Mrs. BatGod?"

The coyote always reminded me of a 70's Le Mans car, hardly as groundbreaking a design as the pilot episode made it out to be. I have to say it though I used to love the show... well until Streethawk, Airwolf and especially Knight Rider came along and kicked it to the kerb.



A little song, a little dance..... Batman's head on a lance.
