    Barcroft Media Presents Rich W's Custom DeLoreans (video profile)

    Barcroft Media did a video profile of my Custom DeLorean Projects earlier this Summer. Like the one in 2013,
    the video filming took place on one of the warmest days of the Summer ... plenty of sweat between takes.

    The video turned out well, but there is few seconds of footage (after a few "hop" jumps) where the radiator
    developed a small leak, where the aluminum radiator and steel bracket come together and the D Rex is seen
    puffing a little steam behind and around the huge front bumper and radiator grille. It almost looks like it is a
    special effect, so I guess I cannot be too upset about a very small amount of that footage in the final cut.

    Release date has not been disclosed yet, but it should be sometime this month, hopefully in early November.

    Attaching a few still photo captures from the Final Cut of the Video Profile that should be released soon.

    Thanks Domi. The D Rex was moving more "quick" then "fast", since it was a very short run-up.

    Attaching a "fire-breathing" D Rex photo (or is it a photo of the D Rex letting off a little steam).

    9 hours of filming, edited down into 3 minutes of video. After doing this several times now, I am
    still puzzled how certain clips make it to the Final Cut, with substantial other footage left on the
    cutting room floor. While I already know much of the footage is multiple re-takes, I still wonder
    why OK footage makes it in, while the majority of the great footage never sees the light of day.

    Attaching a teaser video link (on the Barcroft Cars YouTube video channel):

    Finally posted today (of course I am away from a computer too).

    I wish they did not use Back to the Future car in the title,
    but we all knows that is how it goes when you own DeLoreans.

    Thanks for sharing the link!

    Surprised you didn't smash the rear louver and engine cover when the D-Rex went over that large bump.

    And the steaming did look like a special effect.

    Yes, I did forget to put the extra safety bungee cord back on the louver, after they took some photos.

    As for the interview story-line, that has taken upon a life of its own.

    As expected, the original story, photos and video have morphed into a variety of similar stories on the net.

    Below are a few more related story links, with slightly different variations on the same story:
