Post-lockdown life in Naples, FL

On Saturday , I took a vacation back to the real world. You remember that place, where we walked down crowded streets on a Saturday night, ate at crowded restaurants, and cruised in bumper-to-bumper traffic down the main drag? A place where we only wore masks if it was Halloween or Mardi Gras, and the only fear we had was the fear of missing out. It wasn’t some far-off fantasy I had while laying on my couch during day 62 of quarantine, nor did I jump in a souped-up Delorean and ride a hoverbo...

Playmobil Made the Best Back to the Future Toys You Can Buy

Despite what Star Wars and George Lucas taught the industry about how to properly market a summer blockbuster, when Back to the Future hit theaters in 1985, there was a dismal amount of movie merchandise in stores. But 35 years later, an avalanche of BttF collectibles is en route, including some new sets from…Read more...

Oldest campsites in the US

It will not last forever. But for now, let’s forget about 2020. Let’s find places in the world that scream of a different era — one overflowing with lava, ancient shallow seas, glacial lakes, and long-gone mountains. Gas up the Delorean — here’s eight places you can camp that throw it way further...

Playing with fire: Ironwood tackles the BMW R1250GS

Ironwood Custom Motorcycles have a reputation for building edgy, well-finished BMW R-series boxers. But this latest project is a far cry from that simple and classic platform. This time around, the Dutch shop has torn into the most technologically complex boxer of all: a brand new R1250GS. With a liquid-cooled motor, trick ‘ShiftCam’ tech and a veritable spaghetti of electronic wiring and wizardry, the R1250GS is light years ahead of its ancestors. And speaking from experience, it’s a blast t...

‘Back to the Future: The Musical’ Photos Reveal the DeLorean on Stage, Dancing Doc Browns & More

Back to the Future: The Musical started early previews at the Manchester Opera House just last week. Unfortunately, since the show is only playing in London until the middle of May, that leaves a lot of Back to the Future fans unable to check out the lively show from Tony Award-winning director John Rando (Urinetown, On The Town). But the good news is you can get a little sneak peek at what the show looks like thanks to some Back to the Future: The Musical photos from the first week of shows fo...

Ahead to the Past: DeLorean Production Could Start Next Year

DeLorean’s plan to produce updated versions of its only model has been delayed due to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) dragging its feet on the Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act. The car was supposed to be here as a turnkey classic years ago, but the regulator failed to act after the 2016 election. […] The post Ahead to the Past: DeLorean Production Could Start Next Year appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

A Self-Driving DeLorean Is Taught How to Drift

A group of Stanford engineers has built an electric self-driving DeLorean that they’ve taught how to drift through a fairly complicated kilometer-long course “with the agility and precision of a human driver”. I imagine this will be available as a free update to Telsas soon after some of this project’s team members get hired over there. According to this article, the car completed the course on the first try, after “seeing” a GPS map of it. MARTY is a 1981 DeLorean that Goh and his colleag...

Fan-Made Tesla Cybertruck Mods are Coming in Fast & Furious

So, this is a bit frustrating. For every person who manipulates an image of the Tesla Cybertruck with their desired design changes and posts their creation… ...there are more folks just Tweeting modded images of the truck without crediting who created them: It's a pity, as some of the images look pretty cool and I'd love to know who did them:In the shots above I recognize riffs on Blade Runner's spinner, Akira's bike, Halo's Warthog, Back to the Future's Delorean and The Dark Knight'...

This Week in Photography Books: Robert Frank

  My wife told me an awful story last night. (Prepare yourself, it’s a tough one.) Apparently, one of the kids in my daughter’s 2nd grade class gave a note to two of her best friends that read: I’m going to kill you. They told the teacher, as you might expect, but it turns out the boy’s mom is co-workers with one of the victim’s mother. So the perpetrator’s parent approached the victim’s mother at work, called her a “Snitch,” and started a physical altercation. Now, the aggrieved mother told my ...
