    Default Who has a DeLorean in southern California?

    There a high tech trade association doing an industry awards banquet in a few months. The theme might be, "Back to the Future" and they might want to bring in a DeLorean for the hotel meeting room lobby or have it parked outside at the limo curb as part of the theme creation.

    There might be a few buck and a bit more pride for any owner who can supply one for the event in Orange County.

    Sorry, but it is a tentative request at this point. They are not sure exactly how they are going to manage the promotion at this time.

    It might happen. It might not.

    These guys have some cars, and they seem to like parades, etc.

    The Southern California DeLorean Club

    or these guys:

    I also searched online for "people who fart in the bathtub and try to eat the bubbles". No luck . . . yet.

    I'm sure there are at least a couple of Deloreans in SoCal made to look like the one from Back to the Future. I've either seen more than one on freeways or the same one multiple times.
