I’ve seen two of the DeLorean time machines up close: the one at Universal Studios Orlando (which was starting to look a bit run-down, but I think they cleaned it up when they moved it a few years ago), and the replica at Hollywood Casino in Tunica, Mississippi.
The one in Orlando popped a wheelie on the train tracks in Back to the Future: Part III. And the one in Tunica, from what I’ve heard, was actually built using some pieces of the B-Car destroyed at the end.
I’ve always thought that scene was depressing…
Anyway, I’m bringing all that up because the team over at Time Machine Restoration recently finished restoring the original “Hero” car from the first Back to the Future.
“First, you turn the time circuits on. Then, let TMR take you straight back to 1985 when you first laid eyes on the most amazing car in movie history! Buckle up!
It has been our true privilege to restore the screen-used, hero “A” Delorean Time Machine and bring it BACK to the fans. The Time Machine is now on display at Universal Studios, Hollywood!”
