Man builds replica of DeLorean from 'Back to the Future'
BATON ROUGE - A Louisiana man has created a working replica of the DeLorean time machine from "Back to the Future."
27-year-old Drew Guillory spent five years converting his 1983 DeLorean DMC-12 into the decade-jumping vehicle from the 1985 hit movie.
Guillory says he researched the car by looking at screenshots from the films. The Baton Rouge filmmaker and photographer then bought and made dozens of pieces to recreate the car.
The vehicle has large vents mounted over the engine in the rear, dials and switches inside the cockpit and doors that open outwardly.
Produced from 1981 to 1983, the DMC-12 was the only car the DeLorean Motor Company put out before going bankrupt. The vehicle remained popular because of the "Back to the Future" franchise.
