If I could find a good Delorean, I'd trade in my truck for it. No lie.

I don't get the Deloreans jokes on the miovie...

was that a cheap car or something?.. or the other way around?

When Marty says "you made a time machine... off a Delorean?" I don't get what he means...

I find the car real sweet actually... like a lamborghini, but a little uglier

Its because the guy who made that car, went to jail for cocaine or something.

Yep it was cocaine, and a lot of people didn't like the car, there weren't many sold if I'm not mistaken.....so being the car was named after the guy who designed it, it kind of became a joke.

Hehe I just thought Marty's surprise was because a car isn't the first place I (or the writers) would put a time machine in either

But I loved these movies from the very first time I watched them. The first is one of my all-time favourites and I prefer the second to the third (more time travel, less romantic western). THAT score is just as classic as Star Wars or Indy Jones IMO and I love how the scene when Marty goes 'back to the future' at the end of the first film is in all three *grins*

I love how everything ties into that Clocktower in 1955 for some reason.

Also, Saturday, November 12th, 2005 will be exactly 50 years since Marty went "back to the future"

The van scene in the mall parking lot was so intense!! I think that may have been my first taste of feeling sorrow for a fictional character, when Doc gets shot.

And then pure joy later when, fully alive, he yells at Marty about all the "jigawatts" needed to power the time circuits...and how he's got to bring the Delorean to that magical 88 miles per hour...ahh, the memories...

as I understand it, the Delorean wasn't a production car...I believe it was hand-made

Great movies
So, it's an "classic" that us old folk mumble about.

Great movies

I agree, these are 3 great films

I had a Back to the Future computer game on my Sinclair ZX spectrum 128k computer (it loaded up via a tape, lol!).

I was reading Michael J. Fox's memoir (Lucky Man) in which he talked about how he had an accident on the third film when filming a stunt, which led him to going to a neurologist where he first discovered he had Parkinsons. It was quite sad reading this, as Michael J. Fox was one of my fave actors when I was a kid and I loved the Back to The Future films

Why would anyone want to drive a Delorean?
