Some people are movie fans. Others are fanatics. And then there's Lenny Hochteil, the man who built a DeLorean time machine just like the one in Back to the Future.

It's got a flux capacitor, gullwing doors and ground effects. And, yes, he does dress up like Doc Brown when he drives it.

Believe it or not, Hochteil is hardly the only person to convert a DMC DeLorean into a very expensive movie prop.

Similar replicas pop up on the internet from time-to-time, including a few years ago when this spot-on reproduction that appeared on ebay.
