Back to the Future's DeLorean was almost a refrigerator--plus 8 other BTTF facts

Back to the Future is basically the perfect movie. But it totally could have been just a bad 80’s movie if a few things went differently. Like if Eric Stoltz never got replaced with Michael J. Fox, if the movie had used a refrigerator as the time machine instead of the DeLorean or if the movie was called Spaceman from… »8/25/15 9:44am8/25/15 9:44am

Could Doc Brown's DeLorean Even Get Up To 88 MPH In That Parking Lot?

The DeLorean was known for a lot of things. Speed was not one of them. Underpowered even by early 1980s standards, it was a bizarre choice for a time machine that needed to hit 88 MPH to cross the temporal barrier.

This car parade of DeLoreans is the coolest thing

A prediction about the future that I'm pretty confident in making: this picture will be the best thing to come out of St Patrick's Day 2015.

Awesome animation is like a cross between Back to the Future and Tron

If this video doesn't get you going, you're dead inside and we can't be friends. Florian Renner made this short animation, Retrowave, as an ode to the style of the 1980's. It basically combines the worlds of Back to the Future and Tron by turning the DeLorean into a Light Cycle on The Grid. »2/10/15 11:30pm2/10/15 11:30pm

If I Can't Have a DeLorean Time Machine, I'd Totally Take This DeLorean Hovercraft Instead

I've grown up. I've faced reality. I now know that getting a DeLorean time machine like in Back to the Future isn't going to happen any time soon. I think I'm okay with it. I'd definitely be okay with it if I could replace the DeLorean-sized hole in my heart with this awesome DeLorean Hovercraft. It was spotted… »1/16/13 8:20pm1/16/13 8:20pm
