When This DeLorean Golf Cart Hits 88 MPH…

Back to the Future has made the DeLorean one of the most popular vehicles in recent history. I’ll always believe a DeLorean is actually a time machine built by Dr. Emmett Brown, and you can’t convince me otherwise. Someone at Red Deer College in Alberta, Canada, must pretty taken with the car/time machine too because the college commissioned a custom DeLorean golf cart for their 30th annual golf tournament. You read that correctly. It has a flux capacitor and everything. Could you imagine seeing this beauty on the golf course?

Adafruit customer TheLukePhone posted about the build in our forums and shared the above walkaround video. The capacitor is controlled by an Adafruit Trinket Pro and there are sound effects — quotes and clips from the first movie — attached to an Adafruit Audio FX board. David Heykants of Dual Divisions did the fabrication, body work, and paint, and TheLukePhone also got help from John Perrin. They started work in July and spent about 600 hours on the project. You can read more details about the DeLorean golf cart in the forums and on Imgur.
