For halloween my son wanted to do a Back to the Future (BTTF) Theme this year. He wanted me to get a real BTTF DMC reproduction for $60,000 on ebay. After I got off the floor from passing out We came up with a way more affordable way to do this. Why not make one out of my Scion TC. So we did. It probably cost about $100 bucks to do this. We have the Flux Capacitor, an iPad time calculator and the Plutonium case which doubles as our candy dish.


That is def one of a kind...I have a Scion TC also but mine is white with a rear spoiler cant do this theme but looking for any advise as to what theme i could have since halloween is coming soon. thanks

'What are you deff and stupid!?"
Oh comon the Futureshock can never be replaced! The Delorean made the machine, dude. I agree still very cool modification. The first thing in my head I envisioned after seeing this pic was my Cobalt done up like that ha!

Sooooo cool!!!!!
This has created a love/hate relationship between you, and I.

Love the whole concept, and absolutely love BTTF - my favorite movie of all time.

But hate that it's a Scion, and not a Delorean. Even though I think it's awesome.

Like I said, love/hate, lol. Cheers!

I forgot to say how COOL this is. Especially the left side outer prop. Held on with magnets?

This looks better than some DeLorean mods ive seen.

That is seriously awesome. Where did you get (or make?) the smaller props (newspaper, sports almanac, etc.)? Did you take enough pictures during the build to put together an actual Instructable (or few)?
cowtasticfilms (author)  kelseymh3 years ago
The cool thing about a Halloween Prop is I have to take it apart so I video taped this and will submit it as an instructable.
you mean you actually take this off? No way, I'd be the nerd driving around with it on all the time!

You can get BTTF "kits" on eBay from people that bought them and resell copies...sort of unethical, but for the $10 or so, you get the clocktower flier, the "VOTE FOR MAYOR" poster, the fading Marty picture, all kinds of stuff.

I usually make movie props myself, its fun. Did you make these?
