Mike, Marty McFry and Ben…on the road for the SOS Road Trip

Marty McFly: Wait a minute, Doc. Ah… Are you telling me you built a time machine… out of a DeLorean?


Doc: The way I see it, if you’re gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?

We couldn’t agree with you more, Doc Brown. With the passing of Soy George last winter, we had to go out and get another vehicle for the Save Our Snow Road Trip. And if you’re gonna convert a vehicle to run on waste vegetable oil, why not do it in style? This year we found a
