Of the seven iconic DeLorean time machine cars used to create the three “Back to the Future” movies, only three original cars are thought to still exist today. Presented by Profiles in History, one of those screen used DeLoreans will be at San Diego Comic-Con 2011 for public viewing in conjunction with Team Fox benefitting The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Fans will have the opportunity to see and even be photographed in the car for a $20 donation to the Foundation.
The DeLorean will be presented at booth 1605, along with several original artifacts from all three Back to the Future movies with the hopes of creating a Back To The Future “museum” experience. 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, the Doc Brown committed/commended newspapers, a full set of all five types of hoverboard, and other rarely seen pieces of cinematic history.
The Time Machine has been in private hands for the past 8 years, and was recently featured on the Hollywood Treasure television show hosted by Joe Maddalena. Joe and his staff will be at the booth in person to greet fans, and share these rare pieces of history. In conjunction with Team Fox, this is a rare opportunity to get your pictures taken with the original Time Machine.
The Time Machine will be available for viewing during advertised Comic-Con show hours, and will be in a future Profiles in History auction later this year, with a portion of the proceeds going to Team Fox benefitting The Michael J. Fox Foundation.
