Video: Man Builds DeLorean Monster Truck, Doesn’t Stop There

Yep, it’s Back To The Future monster-truck style. Rich Weissensel, a software engineer from Chicago, Illinois, is a DeLorean fan, to say the least. After a chance encounter with the inventor of the now famous (or infamous, depending on your point of view) brushed stainless steel sports coupe at a Cleveland, Ohio car show, Weissansel decided he had to have one.

But like many fans of anything automotive, he just couldn’t stop at one. He now has about half-a-dozen DeLoreans that he has modified in one way or another. His very first adventure into DeLorean dizziness was to build a monster truck from a wrecked DeLorean and a wrecked Chevy K5 Blazer. It took him about a month to finish building the silver behemoth that stands on a custom-made 12-inch suspension lift, with a winch up front, a side-pipe exhuast system, and a set of Interco TSL Bogger Super Swamper tires.

Not stopping there, Weissensel spent the next decade building an entire collection of DeLorean morphs, including a stretched DeLorean limousine, a hovercraft, a convertible, and a time machine replica. Weissenthal also bought and restored three stock DeLoreans. You think the guy is a fan, or what? Tell us in the comments section below what you think of his collection of DeLorean variants, and which one is your favorite. Personally, we want to see him crush cars with the monster!
