...saw this in the parking lot. I think he might have been looking for parts to create a new Flux Capacitor.

So far, in my life, I've seen two DeLoreans. The first one was in Monterey, California and the second one was here in Anchorage.

Doc Brown



If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious ****.

I wonder why Marty and Doc chose to come to 2009. We still don't have an abundance of plutonium.

Also, I wonder which version of Marty and Doc it was. Was it the ones from 1985, the ones from 1885 or the ones from 2015? And will the world really be like that in only 6 years?

You should have found them in the store. We have so many questions.

I'll bet there ain't many of them babies still on the road. Delorean was a visionary. Pity they felt they had to take him out the way they did.

Wow after all these years, it's still a cool looking car.
Even without the flux capacitor.

Must have been from 1985. In 1885 they had the electronics mounted on the bonnet. In 2015 they had Mr Fusion sitting on the back.

Also, he's in the wrong place if he wants parts for a flux capacitor. All he needs to do is go to this website:

Correct - I think it's plain stainless steel, isn't it?

He was silly enough to think that importing cocaine to save his car company was a good idea. Entrapment? Maybe. Bad idea? Yes, for sure!

The thing was very slow for a 'sports' car. Peugeot/Renault/Volvo V6 LOL. Which is why, if you look around, theres more than a few of them mooded to run v8s and rotaries. (just look on *gags* youtube) Or even toyota 4s LMAO *purists, look away now*

Yep. Thats stainless. There was at least 1 gold plated version, and lots of black fiberglass 'mules'.

BTW, just for a laugh...88 Mph? thats off the clock for a Delorean!

Yes, that is a real pic of the dash. I wish I had taken pics when I saw one on the roads here a while back. Right hand drive Deloreans have to be pretty rare birds.

I've seen piles of DeLoreans here in Canada. They were rare once upon a time but DMC actually came back after a long vacation and started remaking them so now there are quite a few on the road.

The car needs a rubdown with lemon oil.

And you get 2700 Geek Points!!!

But if you buy it on November 5th, you only get 1955 Geek Points.

I bought a Flux Capacitor, but the speed limit is only 70mph on the interstate, here, so I'm screwed.

I searched that store high and low! I just could not find them! I fear that the staff were hiding them in the back because it's obvious that the parts needed for that car should have been sold under the cover of darkness...

The one here is pretty sweet. Almost everything on sale is connected to a computer. If you pickup the item, it triggers the computer to tell you more information about what you just picked up. It's pretty sweet. Tiger direct has done a great job.

That's awesome. I walked in to mine the last 5 minutes they were open, everything was 99% off.
