Re: [DML] BTF car(s).

Actually there are quite a few of them out there now. There are 
the "open" replicas where the owner tells you that they are replicas 
(most of the owners of these are on the list - Brandys, Holler etc.). 
The more insidious ones are the George Barris replicas. Barris had 
nothing at all to do with the original movie cars, but is now making 
replicas that are in car museums all over the country. They ARE 
signed by him on the front fender, but generally the museum people 
seem ignorant that the cars are not actually from Universal or from 
the movie.

According to the movie producers, all the DeLorean cars from the 
movie are still in posession of Universal or have been destroyed. It 
is possible that one or more made it out into the public, for example 
we do know that "Biff's BMW from the future" is currently being 
restored in private hands.

reap some publicity off of it. So, in reality, the car which Tom Tait 
says he bought is really not the original car used to make any of the 
BTF cars but just one they used to advertise the movie.
