Universal Studios’ Authentic DeLorean Sports Car Featured in the Blockbuster Film Back to the Future III Recaptures Time & Motion for Charity at the Premiere Exhibition of Cars, Collectibles & Cinema at the Museum of Monterey taking place on Sunday, August 14th through Sunday, August 21st, 2011.
Of the seven iconic DeLorean time machine cars used to create the three “Back to the Future” movies, only three original cars are known to still exist today. Presented by Profiles in History and Concours Television Ventures, one of those screen-used DeLoreans will be at Cars, Collectibles & Cinema at the Museum of Monterey from Sunday, August 14 through Sunday, August 21, 2011 for public viewing. Fans will have the opportunity to see the original vehicle, be photographed with the car and meet several actors from the iconic film trilogy. A number of characters from the film series will be in attendance including Jeffrey Weissman, who played Martin McFly, Michael J. Fox’s father, in Back to the Future 2 & 3.
The DeLorean will be presented along with a collection of original film artifacts and props from all three Back to the Future movies creating a rare Back To The Future ‘Time Travel’ experience of cinematic preservation. Along with the Time Machine will be original costumes, the Tales From Space comic, Doc’s burned toy Cadillac, Clock Tower cables, Gray’s Almanac and a full set of all five types of hoverboard, and other seldom-seen pieces of cinematic history.
The Time Machine has been in private hands for the past 8 years, and was recently featured on the Syfy Channel’s Hollywood Treasure television show hosted by Joe Maddalena. Joe and his staff will be at in person to greet fans, and share these rare pieces of movie history.
