Back to the Future's DeLorean time machine abandoned and neglected by Gary Emerald
It's sad but true; some studios just don't care about their assets. Their short sidedness sometimes is just plain unprofessional. Back to the Future is one of the most important franchises in American film history, and no doubt one of Universal Studios’ best. Back to the Future is a perfect movie, a masterpiece. It is shocking to see that one of the three hero DMC time machines created for use in BTTF part I was left to rot away on Universal’s back lot. Can you imagine the value of this picture vehicle had it been cared for and auctioned off? Instead it was left to rot away…this particular car was used for all the interior shots, and perhaps was the one in the films that gets the most screen time. Clearly no one their has any concept of what they have or had, and for a company who needs stuff to display on their tour, why was this thing not better cared for?
