    The dealership scene was shot at Beverly Hills Mercedes-Benz, which was indeed a DeLorean dealership in the early 1980s- I've even seen "Beverly Hills DeLorean" license plates & license plate frames on eBay.

    I don't see it. Could be a leprechaun. Could be a crackhead.

    Get your DeLorean soon. Values will skyrocket once the Montana connection is public.

    I still dont see it..your overlay isnt taking into account distance or angle of the vehicle..for it match up like that, it would have to be inside the building. I still think its the playing of reflections and light off the window of the car. Also have to figure on whats going on above, buidling facades, signs, etc.

    I'm not saying its not...but I'm just not seeing it...plus given the contrast of shadow along the upper part of the window, the trim around the drop glass would be more obvious.

    It's hard to tell from the video, but it does look like a toll window judging by the reflection of the cars passing behind.

    Yep, it was a 10 minute quick Photoshop job. I suppose I could park my own car at just the right angle to try to convince you, but I think I'll pass.

    I almost hate to admit how much time I spent looking at the building on Street View and comparing it to the movie. I first assumed that the car was parked outside on the street, but once I looked at the location on Street View I realized that because it's a two way street, the car would be facing the other way if it were parked outside. The sidewalk (at least now) is fairly wide, so I considered that it might have been a special display on the sidewalk. However, after looking at the building on Street View more closely, it appears that there are two showrooms between the street and where the scene in the movie was filmed. Notice the wide square pillars in both the movie and on Street View. Those pillars aren't part of the exterior wall. So, because of the direction that the car is facing and those pillars, I think the car (whatever car it is - probably a DeLorean) was inside.
