It Transcends Time

Spotted at a local Starbucks a few weeks ago:

I had to look twice. That is not a car you see every day.

Not only are DeLoreans kind of rare around  here, but ones built to go back to the future are even rarer.

Rare enough that I felt compelled to take it's picture. Several times.

There was a small sign with a URL on the door, My curiosity got the best of me and I looked it up. Ya gotta love the Google.

It appears that the DeLorean is part of an organization called Team Time Car and is used to make appearances in car shows, special events and participate in the Fireball Adventurally, which is an adventure rally held to raise money for missing children.

Team Time Car's web page states that the car is a replica and has not appeared in any of the Back To The Future films, but has appeared on TV and in other movie projects. It could have fooled me, it is a very convincing replica indeed.

I have no idea what it was doing in the Inland Empire, but I suspect the co-pilot listed on the door may have Inland connections.

I was disappointed that it wasn't the "real" time traveling DeLorean, I could have used it to gather some intelligence. Like who's going to win the Kentucky Derby or what Google stock is going to be worth a year from now.

Thanks for reading,



  1. Nice pix! Once in a while I'll find something noteworthy in a local parking lot, but I never got anything this good.

  2. Trust me, this is an oddity in my neighborhood as well. I just wish I would have had more time, I would have sought the driver out and asked him/her a few questions. Maybe next time.
