Back to the Future Time Traveling Scion TC

Intro: Back to the Future Time Traveling Scion TC

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.


Step 1: 2015 Version of the Ultimate Time Machine

This we we are changing it up a bit. I sold the Scion so with some slight modifications we got the BTTF Time Machine bits to fit.

Now we have the BW Ultimate Time Machine.

    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!

    Check out this cool video we made of the time machine actually working.

    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)?
