    DeLorean Time Machine Replica Prop Car (Events)

    A little background first ...

    The DeLorean Time Machine Replica Prop Car is a 1:1
    Full-size fiberglass model of the DeLorean Time Machine
    created from the same molds used to create the flying
    BTTF II Movie version of the DeLorean Time Machine.

    This promotional recreation was not screen accurate
    and it was used as a museum display for several years
    then discarded to the back lot after initial display use.
    Prop Car was purchased and refurbished in 2002/2003.

    Currently, this Prop Car is the only Time Machine Replica
    that weighs under 880 lbs. and can be displayed in hover
    mode (by cables/crane) or on its wheels, for displays that
    require a light-weight vehicle, such as on a stage or riser.

    The DeLorean Time Machine Replica Prop Car has been
    at many events, but at the Chicago Innovation Awards
    last night, there were many Instagrams, Twitter and
    FaceBook post (with photos, of course) at the event.

    I will post some links later today.

    Sorry for the posting delay ... its been a busy past few days (and I have been away from a computer).

    First off, the Chicago Innovation Awards 2013 had a Back to the Future themed awards event this year.
    The event was held at the Harris Theater Chicago, which is actually located below the Millennium Park.

    Since the event needed a DeLorean on-stage (weight restrictions), my DeLorean Time Machine Replica
    Prop Car "fit the bill" for what was needed. In fact, the right front tire was parked right on a trap door.

    I transported the Prop Car in my enclosed trailer to the event, however, the only entrance to the back
    stage area was sub-basement lower, lower level dock, and even though my Prop Car can be displayed
    in Hover Mode, I still needed a flatbed to assist getting the Prop Car to "dock height" to get to the stage.
    The logistics ran like clock-work and we actually got the Prop Car in ahead of schedule.

    I was asked to stay for the rehearsals, to get the Prop Car lined up where it would be displayed, then we
    marked the spot and backed it off-stage, so it would have a grand entrance at the start of the event.
    Then moving it back and forth for lighting checks and fog machine "tests" and strobe light effects tests.
    After the Prop Car was "set", then Million Dollar Quartet came in for their on-stage sound checks.

    Whitney Jones, the woman who plays the girlfriend of Elvis in the Million Dollar Quartet was beside herself
    with the fact she would be performing on-stage with a DeLorean Time Machine. (my new best buddy)
    She took over a dozen photos with the Prop Car and I have a few of her Instagram links below.
    Needless to say, I will need to get a full cast photo of Million Dollar Quartet next to a DeLorean.

    Attaching a few photos of the event below, along with several links to Instagram photos as well.

    The Grand Entrance ...

    Attaching a photo below of the "Grand Entrance" of the Prop Car and the two hosts for the evening (Doc and Marty).

    The Prop Car was revealed after a short BTTF spoof skit, with both hosts in the same BTTF character costumes.

    DeLorean Time Machine Replica Prop Car "PhotoBombs" hosts and guests

    Attaching a number of photos from the Chicago Innovation Awards last week.

    From the view of the photographer, it appeared the DeLorean Time Machine
    Replica Prop Car was photobombing hosts and guests in almost every photo.

    I thought it was an interesting "theme" for many of the photos that night.

    More Events ... Back in Time ... to DCS 2004

    DCS 2004 was the first time I displayed the refurbished DeLorean Time Machine Prop Car Replica.

    Attaching a few photos below, including "before" and "after" some BTTF cast and crew signatures.

    Back in Time ... in storage until late 2006

    After DCS 2004, the BTTF Time Machine Prop Car Replica was in a storage unit until late 2006.

    Unfortunately, it missed appearing at DCS 2006 since I "ran out of time" moving my vehicles to the show
    and the storage unit place changed their hours (formerly 24 hour access) and I was locked out of the unit.

    Attaching photos of the prop car in the storage unit and after I removed it from the unit in October 2006.

    Back in Time ... to Adobe MAX 2007

    It was 7 years ago this month that the BTTF Time Machine Prop Car Replica appeared at Adobe MAX 2007 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

    It was an 80's theme for Adobe MAX 2007 and the DeLorean Time Machine fit right in for the event, with other "Super Sized" 1980's props.

    Back in Time ... to the Chicago St. Patrick's Day Parade 2007

    I believe 2007 was the first year that I displayed the DeLorean Time Machine Prop Car Replica as a "float" on my single place open trailer.

    I displayed the prop car as a "float" twice in 2007, with the first time being at the Chicago St. Patrick's Day Parade:

    Back in Time ... to the Chicago St. Patrick's Day Parade 2008

    It seems like the DMC Club never has a shortage of attention given to our DeLoreans, especially from the Chicago Police Department.

    So many "hoops" to jump through for all the drivers...need to see current registration, insurance card and driver's license of each driver.

    Lot's of paperwork to fill out as well. We need to have it every year...sometimes they look at it, sometimes keep it, sometimes nothing.
