'Back to the Future' has never looked so cool

Recommended Posts

Few cars from the 1980s have ever drawn quite as much attention as the DeLorean. Powered by its starring role in the "Back to the Future" movies, the fascination grew the moment ?Doc? Emmett Brown and his wild grey locks first appeared from behind the iconic gullwing doors. It didn't save DeLorean from collapsing after building just 9,000 cars, but it turned those that were built into instant classics.

Over the past three decades, owners of the DeLorean DMC-12 have set out to fix some of the car's many challenges; engine upgrades, better exhausts and lowered suspension ? while leaving most of the car as stock as possible. But a lone DeLorean fanatic who became obsessed with the vehicle way before Marty McFly hit 88 mph has remixed the stainless-steel DeLorean shape into automotive creations as bizarre and brilliant of any I?ve witnessed.

Rich Weissensel first met founder John DeLorean at a Cleveland auto show back in 2000. He?d long had ideas to make custom DeLoreans, and after speaking with the founder, began sketching ideas.

I quickly ask after the incredible DeLorean limousine, stretching the length of a school bus. Its interior remains unfinished. A mock setup was installed for visual purposes at a car show about a year ago, but with that now removed, Weissensel has set his sights upon finishing his most challenging project to date. This won?t be your typical Vegas limo, used as a gimmick for sleazy bachelorette parties, however. Rather it promises to be an authentic DeLorean. Only a stretched one. With six gullwing doors.

Crap as a car or not, I'd still have one, (with all the addons of course)

(one could lend it to car shows and such for a fee if nothing  else)
