Signed and driven multiple times by legendary actor Christopher Lloyd as ‘Doc Brown’ himself, this DeLorean features the famous Flux Capacitor and working time circuits. It has toured internationally as an ambassador for the official Back to the Future™ website BacktotheFuture.com, appeared in a national promotion for Nike, appeared with Lloyd in international television commercials and ad campaigns for Argentinian electronics retailer Garbarino, and appeared in a rap music video by O’Neal McKnight (also featuring Lloyd) called “Check Your Coat.”
Most importantly, the instantly-recognizable car is frequently used to raise funds and awareness for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (www.MichaelJFox.org). The Hollers have raised more than $500,000 for Team Fox (www.TeamFox.com) – a milestone which caught the attention of Fox himself and resulted in a video acknowledgement from the famed film and television star (http://youtu.be/2W7v10sFo4E).
From September 24 until December 12, the Holler will be driving their hand-built DeLorean Time Machine across Europe, and you can be part of the adventure! As long-time volunteers for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF), the Hollers plan to raise money and awareness throughout 17+ countries, connecting with fellow Back to the Future fans along the way.
Their drive begins at the Copenhagen Comic Con and the route is still being developed as people in Denmark, England, Poland and Germany have already offered some hospitality to the time travelers. The Hollers plan to share their time machine with local hosts for photo opportunities, rides and to distribute information about the foundation while collecting unique experiences from their travels for an upcoming book.
"Friends always show us the best local food and places of interest," states Oliver Holler. "Having local experts helps us save both time and money, which only increases the impact of our mission," adds Terry Holler.
