    Wasn't this car also used in the BTTF ride footage? I was told that years ago, not sure if it's true.

    My VIN:    04610

    I'm confused ...

    VIN#05261 has always been on the tram tour (see first picture) and is an original BTTF-used car (the A-car!). Since this car is being restored now and was taken away, then wich car is now on the tram tour? Could it be the Jay Ohrberg replica (see second picture), according to the missing grill?

    Can someone shed a light on this?

    Yes that is correct. The USF car was used for filming the ride footage.

    Both the A car and Ohrberg replica have been displayed on the tram tour at various points in the past. Both cars have also been parked in front of the ride entrance.

    There are some very obvious differences between the two cars depending on the point in time at which photos were taken. Most of the props on the Ohrberg replica are close approximations of the actual parts used on the hero car.... The vents were also bolted directly to the fiberglass engine cover instead of a fabricated aluminum deck. There are lots of details in the interor that vary as well.

    Of the two phots you posted, the first one is the A car sitting on the tram tour route. The second photo shows the Ohrberg replica parked behind the tram garage. The grille was taken off the A car in the past (as well as the Ohrberg car) so that is not necessarily a good indicator of which car is which.

    Currently the A car is being restored and the Ohrberg replica is taking its place on the tram tour.

    Thanks for the explanation! It's hard to keep up with all these different BTTF-cars, replica or real ...

    By the way, anybody happens to know the VIN on the Jay Ohrberg-replica?

    {Just realised that I may have double counted this car in my 65 car total - oops}

    At Roscoe:

    I searched for "Roscoe" assuming someone had seen this place before I just did.

    Has anyone been there before? It looks about an hour or so from Crystal Lake (DMCMW). There is a movieland exhibit, but a lot more too including a few JFK and Parkland autos and historic items. Heck, it says they have the Wagon Queen Family Truckster from Vacation and that's worth going right there!!

    Anyone seen it themselves? How is it?

    Sorry to resurrect a 6-year old thread, but would anybody happen to know if the BTTF DeLorean in the Hollywood Casino in Tunica is still there? According to my information this should be VIN#04765, but now somebody from Phoenix says (on a certain FB Group) he owns that perticular DeLorean and that it was in a field in Colorado since around 1993.

    Can anybody shed a light on this?
