DeLoreon Question

I posted this over at BOTB and was reminded about this board. I have just copy and pasted the body of the message. Any help would be appreciated.

"Hey bros,
I'm doing a film project for my Sci Fi class. I was thinking about doing a "Scary Movie" type deal with Sci Fi movies and was wondering if there was anyone in the Chatsworth CA area that had a delorean souped up like the time machine. If so or if anyone here knows someone who does, would it be possible to get an email

I know that this is a long shot and that is hightened by the fact that I need to know within about a week but I figured it was at least worth asking. Thanks everyone."


I really just need to know if this is possible to get this project off of the ground but as always in this hobby, time is of the essence. Thanks.

I know this really doesn't help much, but for a spoof movie, I would use a spoof car. Something like a mid 80's toyota tercel or chevy corsica - y'know, a car that could barely get up to 88 MPH on a good day.

Just get the the time machine parts (at least the most recognizable ones) and tape them to the car.

Just a thought (from a fan of the Scary Movie series).

That's a cool idea. Personally for the part in the film a real DeLorean would be better but if I can't find one that helps a lot. Does anyone know of someone who has built one or something close?

How about a Time Machine Delorean Go-Cart?

That would be Funny, especially if it was Man-Powered and they had to Peddle the vehicle to the right speed.
(They would probably have to go downhill to even get close to 88 MPH)
