    There's a chance, probably not a very big chance, that it might be my car.

    Just after buying my car in 2015, I replied to this request for a DeLorean to be displayed at Industrial Light & Magic. Mike was nice enough to arrange for someone to take my girlfriend and me on a tour of the facility and we even saw some BTTF models! Toward the end of the tour, there was an odd exchange between our tour guide and someone else. It was sort of a "wink wink, nudge nudge" kind of exchange where they said that the should take a camera out and get some detail shots of the stainless steel. It felt like they wanted to collect some reference textures, but knowing that there wasn't a BTTF4 in the works, I convinced myself that I was misunderstanding their intent. I'd nearly forgotten about this until I realized that ILM worked on Ready Player One.

    A really good stainless is one of those difficult things to do in cg. Many get close..but always looking for those references...Before I got my car, i had a friend drive down here jsut so I could get references for my cg work on deloreans....now that I got my own, I been working to get my stainless surface even betterer.

    Which would make sense since the author has a KITT steering wheel in his Delorean in real life.
    And the KITT scanner on the front of his DeLorean as well.

    The KITT wheel is supposedly a real pain to drive with on the street.

    Not going to lie, kind of like the Bullitt one.

    I'd agree, the Bullit one is the better looking of those.

    I saw the movie last night. Loved it! Very fun seeing Ecto-88 in it (granted without the Ghost Busters logo probably due to not being able to get rights). Sure it was all CGI, but it was very well done. In fact I was surprised when he deployed it, you see the car start to assemble itself. During this you see parts of the frame which was correct and even the engine. Right before the rear fascia appears, you can easily make out the W pipe on the intake!

    The movie itself while not as good as the book was still lots of fun. Definitely worth seeing in a movie theater. The 3D was also very good and consistent throughout.
