Who is it then? Who got Video Butthead to create them both? Smile

The camera man needs to lose some weight from listening to him breathe throughout that video.

I suspect it's a chap up North. He imported a stock one and was buying another two with the intention of having a BTTF 1/2 & 3 for his collection. Though I thought his intention was to do the conversions himself, seems to much of a coincidence to be otherwise. But with the interest in BTTF could be another buyer!

Yea I agree I think it's Glen. I could have done both them in the UK and far better than Video Butthead too. Could have saved him a fortune on import + insurance etc. Still got a lot of parts from after Jasons. Nevermind Sad

Errrm, I don't know about all this BTTF stuff. I wonder in years to come if we could end up with more BTTF cars, than regular DeLoreans? :roll:

Don't get me wrong, I love the films etc, but this all seems a bit 'intense' to me….. if you keep watching 'Video Bobs' U tube clips…. But then it is his business and he's just promoting it I suppose.

I dont regret getting rid of my BTTF car, ( the first drivable one in the UK) because that had definitely turned into a business. Shock

Back to being a hobby now. Big Grin

I was talking about a guy called David in Cheshire. Is this Glen another person importing more BTTF cars?

I believe it's Glen Hale that bought these two from discussions with a few people. I was under the belief that he's getting them for SELF DRIVE. Shock That.....is a disaster waiting to happen, it really is. Jumping on bonnets, pranging them, parts missing. It will be a NIGHTMARE, I can speak from experience from when I was even there at events, never mind unsupervised.

With those two there's like, 6 in the country now?

I've not spoken with David, but I know the above was true so perhaps another one incoming then!

I don't normally air my negative feelings in public, but Having delt with Glen Hale over the sale of my time machine……super cheap as it happens and only because I thought I was helping out an enthusiastic, keen young club member……...when the deal finally completed…..it wasn't him at all who paid! :evil: but a then, friend of his.

Needless to say it all ended in tears and recriminations, hence the car ended up at Gaydon.

I wouldn't want anyone else to go through all that. Cry

That's a bit crappy Chris :-( He could have at least purchased it himself and then sold it to him after a few months of enjoying it.

Love the TG photos above! Smile

Who ever bought two must have more money then sense. Why did they not just buy one and have a removable fusion at the back? There is not much different between the two cars apart from a piece of metal to cover the plutonium chamber, in theory all you would need to do is add the fusion. :-)

If this person has stacks of money and he wants to buy more, let me know, I now have enough parts for about 3 full cars. Big Grin

He plans on hiring them out as self drive. Perhaps what he's gonna do is have one as a personal car to enjoy and then hire the other one out? Not too bad of an idea providing that vets the drivers out properly and has a good insurance policy.

Sounds like he does have a load of money so fair play Big Grin

Totally agree Chris, I'd take anything that idiot says with a large bucket of salt, and then some.
