    In Search of VideoBob BTTF Build #22

    I have been maintaining a VIN list of DeLorean BTTF replica builds for a number of years now, and to date there are 89 VINs identified as such. Of these VideoBob has built some 25 cars that we know of. I have the VINs of all but #22. Does anybody know the VIN of this car, or where it is?

    It is possible that I already have the VIN marked as a BTTF build, but donít have knowledge of it as VB build #22.

    Thanks in advance. This is in support of my effort to maintain an accurate list of BTTF conversions.

    Some of the locations are old on your list, and I have a feeling the car you seek is in the UK. Here is a pretty accurate and up-to-date list of cars in England and some in Europe that I know about (all of the details for the England ones are 100% up-to-date):

    2493 Yorkshire, England (self-converted)
    3185 Bristol, England (Bruce converted, currently for sale on Ebay)
    5740 Devon, England (self-converted in the UK by 2 owners)
    4787 West Sussex, England (self-converted, currently for sale)
    10406 Kent, England (converted in the USA)
    10680 Joe Macari Garage, London, England (Gary Weaver converted)
    2631 British Motor Museum, Warwickshire, England (self-converted in the UK by 2 owners)
    5059(?? VIN not confirmed) Jason Bradbury or an associated company, somewhere in England (self-converted in the UK)
    and 2 further VINs that were both believed to have been converted by Videobob - http://bttf.co.uk/cars/ - Manchester, England (VINs unknown)

    6425 Northern Ireland (previously converted in England, current status/condition unknown)
    and at least 2 further cars owned by Keith McCracken in Northern Ireland, VINs and quantities unknown - he does have about 4 cars I think.

    France:
    2014 Claude
    and one other

    Belgium:
    5424 http://www.back-to-the-future.be/

    Italy:
    10248 - displayed at Canevaworld Italy
    and one other

    Spain:
    16858 - MT Performance ( Spain )

    Poland:
    3369 - Old Timers garage in Poland

    Sorry, I had intended to put this in my original message (post #1), but when it came to sitting down and actually typing out the post, somehow I forgot.

    He may not get back to you out of respect for his customer. Privacy is still a big deal to some people.

    If anyone ever approaches me and asks for my vin I will assume it's just a crazy psycho who is obsessed with meaningless pursuits. I imagine Video Bob has a similar concern.

    While I appreciate the general point Ben is making, I'm not sure that owners of BTTF replicas are the shy retiring types
