(Great Scott!) The DeLorean Returns Back from the Future as a Monster Truck

The DeLorean returns back from the future as a monster truck

Delorean Monster Ttruck

If Marty McFly and Doc Brown were ever to reunite for a sequel to Back to the Future III, the old time traveling DeLorean would need an upgrade of some sort to justify the ticket. How about adding 44-inch tires to a DeLorean and converting it into a monster truck? That'll do!

While the DeLorean Motor Company is busy producing electric DeLoreans for a 2013 release, one DeLorean easily bested all others at the 2012 DeLorean Car Show & Convention in Orlando, Florida.

What you have here is a 1981 DeLorean sitting on top of a 1979 Chevrolet K5 Blazer frame and power from a 5.7-liter V8 engine.

The gull-wing doors appear to be intact but there's no sign of the flux capacitor. Eh, who needs it, when you've got the power to stomp out all the other cars on the road. Looks like Brown was wrong about the future not having any roads.

Watch as the DeLorean monster truck gets a helping hand trying to pull out of a parking lot. (YouTube link provided below.)

I’m going to dissent here and state this as an abomination.

What a waste.

Obviously you don’t live anywhere near the Pine Barrens.

There was already a Back to the Future III. That’s the one in the old west. He means BTF IV.

Nice pipes. Just needs more mirrors and a rear-vew camera and all will be well.

“If Marty McFly and Doc Brown were ever to reunite for a sequel to Back to the Future III, the old time traveling DeLorean would need an upgrade of some sort...”

It certainly would, since it was annihilated by a railroad train at the end of Back to the Future III.

So when it gets stuck in the old west again, they don’t have to worry about gas. They just hook it up to a windmill and charge the battery.

The DeLorean was indeed destroyed at the end of BTTFIII, but continuity could be preserved by having Doc Brown use his train to go to a time when the DeLorean was stored in the cave. All that's required is that the DeLorean be returned to the cave before Doc and Marty go to retrieve it in the '50s.

Fun movies

Excellent - you should submit a script to the producers!
