The ultimate Delorean Time Machine resource thread (eventually….)


It seems that there's a massively fractured group of people building Delorean Time Machines.

I'm not interested in any of the history or the drama. My plan is for this thread to eventually become the ultimate resource for anyone working on a conversion.

I'll be archiving information from whatever sources I can find, organizing it, and posting it here. I'll be giving credit where credit is due.

If you have something to contribute, please post here. I'll be trying to organize this post as an archive/summary/etc. The goal is to create a "time machine conversion guide" as much as possible.

If you're interested, and have something to add, post here or PM me. If you want to tell me about past drama, or why one person is better than another, then go have a frothy adult beverage, take a chill pill, and say "it's only a car, it's only a car…."

Initial specifications that I have (off the top of my head):
Base Vehicle: 1981 Delorean DMC-12, with a grooved hood, no logo, grey interior, five speed.
Todo: Early or late style wheels? Vin range?

Time machines can be made from other cars. Interior colors can be changed. It's up to the builder, but this is the base car used in the film.

I agree with you that a thread of this kind would be a fantastic resource.

Regrettably, I can't see even a well intentioned thread avoid becoming a cage fight. Lets hope I'm proven to be wrong…

Best of luck..
