The Unveiling Of The DeLorean At The Petersen Automotive Museum – Movie Blog
Alright guys, so remember the blog that I did on my personal site about my night at the Petersen Automotive Museum? Well here is the next installment of all that!
Ok, so just a little reminder note, so I went there with my buddy and owner of AwesomeBMovies.com, ‘Matthew Dowling‘ to go see this event, and well we got there kind of early and so I thought that while we were waiting that I would check out the Museum itself as I am a huge car fan, and boy what I saw there… I can’t wait to go there again! Let’s just put it this way… For more information on that, click here:
Anyway as for the event itself, being that this event was being sponsored by Hot Wheels and Universal, as well as the Petersen itself, this event was to unveil the complete restoration of the original, ‘A’ car from 1985’s, Back To The Future! And the first speaker was the guy who actually developed the newest DeLorean toy car for Hot Wheels!
Now first off he began with the process of building the new car from the ground up, including starting off with the basic design of the car, and how he continually got to watch the first movie over and over again to make sure that he got all of the nuances of the original car that could be replicated for the new car on the new car… (Some stuff just couldn’t be replicated from the original car, but that is just because those parts were just to big and to much to replicate.)
Then after that he went on to describe a fascinating history of the car in hot wheel form, (don’t worry, that blog will be coming soon as well!)
With that said though, we come to the next phase, and something that was really cool was the Q&A with one of the people from TMZ, Steve Concotelli, Joe Walser (Both guys worked on the documentary, worked on the documentary about the restoration called, ‘Outatime’, and Joe was part of the team that restored the car) and producer Bob Gale (he actually worked on the movie!)
And for more information on the documentary, check out this link here:Anyway, this was an amazing Q&A that definitely got to talking about the restoration of the original car, and one addition that was added to the car, (To give a little context on this, when this car was used in the original movie, the lights and sound effects had to be done separate to the car… They added all that in to the car itself!)
But another thing that was really cool about all of this, was all of the awesome stories that you never heard from the set to!
You know what, check this out, I think you guys are really going to like this!
