Everything, Everything Else

Oh.  My.  God.  I tell ya, when I become a billionare (which I’m well on my way to after being laid off before Xmas) I would own this.  I highly consider the “Back to the Future” trillogy to be my favorite movies of the 80′s.  I mean I played “BTTF” in my basement growing up.  How, you might ask?  Well that’s a conversation for another time.  Like, never.  But anyway, this is the most accurate “BTTF” DeLorean ever created.  Even rivaling the prop cars that Universal built for the actual movies.  It was built by Gary Weaver, who is the go-to guy for building your own time machine.  Hell, he owns the site, so yeah, I think this man knows his movie accuracy.  And everything works.  The time circuits.  All the sound effects.  All the little lights.  The fucking doors even make the movie sound when opened.  This is a true work of retro art.  Would I drive it?  Every god-damned day! This baby is up for grabs on eBay at the moment with a starting bid of a cool $89K.  Not for the everyday slave worker bee for sure, but for a rich nerd out there this probably just made them pass out.  When this baby hits 88 miles per hour, you’re gonna see some serious shit.

Thanks to Gizmodo and Jalopnik for the story and gallery of shots.

Here’s the story….and here’s the gallery, and detail shots.

Feel like putting a bid down for me?  Here’s the auction.

Oh, and yes, the gallery of shots were actually taken at Doc Brown’s mansion!  (Really the Gamble House in Pasadena, CA.)
