08.19.2014   The Time Machine will be at RCCC!

Posted by: Andrea D The Time Machine will be at RCCC!
One of the most iconic movie cars to ever hit the big screen, the Time Machine built by Doc Brown, had many of us dreaming about the possibilities of time travel and what year we would travel to either in the future or in our past. The Yellowstone Time Machine has been painstakingly replicated to ensure screen accuracy, employing the best known Back To The Future replica prop builder Gary Weaver II, Portland's own Comic Con self-taught genius Ryan Wells and countless photo still shots from the movie itself. With working programmable time circuits inside of the car, including the most iconic part, the Flux capacitor (which makes time travel possible), fully wired and animated overhead console with integrated movie sound tracks, Plutonium gauges, digital speedometer (signed by Christopher Lloyd), and the dancing lights on the status indicator. Outside the LED color changing lights wrap the sides and the front of the vehicle from the worm hole emitter to the flux boxes, pulsing and strobing to simulate traveling through time. Topping the rear deck is the Mr. Fusion surrounded by all the supporting items that complete the transformation from Delorean to the celebrity recognized worldwide from the youngest  to the oldest.  Built in Billing Montana by a small dedicated team in under 4 months, the Yellowstone Time Machine is ready to make time travel a reality.
