Thank you Ron Cobb for the concept of the Delorean Time Machine from the movie Back to the Future. I also want to say thank you for the concept of another great movie car from the movie "The Last Starfighter" called The Star Car. He also drew that as well and Gene Winfield made it for the movie. Thank you for making such "Iconic Cars"
