Original DeLorean Time Machine car from Back to the Future...

Even though the NBC Universal Experience attraction boasted a wonderful collection of Oscar-winning and nomination costumes, plus iconic outfits and props from classic and newer movies, the centerpiece of the exhibit had to be the restored DeLorean Time Machine 'hero car' featured in the Back to the Future trilogy.

Even though six different cars were used in the production of the films, this 'hero car' photographed on display at Universal Studios Hollywood on May 7, 2013, was the vehicle used for key driving sequences and close ups.

'Doc Brown's' iconic DeLorean Time Machine was designed by Ron Cobb and Andrew Probert. The concept was to make the customised DeLorean look like it had been assembled in Doc's garage from all kinds of eclectic materials from local electronics and hardware stores. The most important prop feature on the back of the car is the nuclear reactor which powers the time travel.

Pretty awesome, right? It's certainly a cool piece of nostalgia from my movie watching childhood (although quite hard to photograph with that lighting and far better to see in person).

If you like this original picture car, be sure to also check out this Marty McFly costume worn by Michael J. Fox and props from the Back to the Future trilogy on display.
