    And on Doc's checklist on his clipboard:

    1. Get in car and pull it into truck.
    2. Raise ramp via some means of remote control.
    3. Wait for Marty to show up.
    4. Roll down windows on car.
    5. Turn on fog machine, making sure interior fills with fog for dramatic effect.
    6. Lower ramp and back car out.
    7. Get out of car and act disoriented - or may not have to as fog might cause this.

    So I had a conversation with Mr. Pike.

    - He told me the reverse lights and break lights were disconnected for the reveal shot so that you could see more of the car and not be distracted/blinded by them.
    - As to how Doc managed to get in the car inside the van... Mr. Z just assumed the audience could make a leap of faith and move on.

    So there you go. I guess some of you wont be satisfied but what are you gonna do.

    doc brown's van

    Life and work have gotten in my way for the last couple of months. I have been looking and researching for the proper van I will need for my car hauler. These Chevrolet P-30 and Grumman Olsen vans come in various lengths. Does someone know of an expert I can talk to about the proper one needed? Is there a prop master around that was involved with building the van for the movie?
    I'm mostly needing to find out the year and length that I need to look for. I know the van was not a Grumman Olsen, but I use the term to describe it, because they seem more popular than the Chevy or GMC type.

    I'm only going to build it once, so I want to do it right.

    My wife has given me a pretty healthy budget for this build, so I should act on it before she changes her mind.
    Everytime I open the garage door, my car costs me a roll of toonies.
