On a side note, we took the time machine and two other Deloreans to The Children's Hospital for their RADIOTHON, fund raising day.. There were many many children and adults in and out of the cars through the day getting their photos taken (thankfully the interiors survived, it was for a good cause). The people working there are saints. A lot of the kids didn't want their pics taken with the attached medical devices :cry:

We were booked from 10:30 till 2:30, but the organiser informed us the next group bailed, so we stayed till the end, which was great because we say this arrive

Owner has the full costume and spent his time in the wards with kids that were bed bound, very very cool

Looks like a great way to spend a day and bring some smiles to some sick kids.
You think life throws some curve balls at you and then you meet these kids and they have been through the wringer,

Well done :o

:D
