yes, I just got the cab since i was seriously running out of luggage space . One suitcase was only full of toys for my son . But the cabs by themselves look really neat. Love the rims on these trucks.

Quoting from the Wiki on the DeLorean DMC 12 - 'A modified version of the car became iconic for its appearance as a time machine in the Back to the Future film franchise'. Read more about it here.

It was the car used for time travel in the 'Back To The Future' trilogy. It is a legend in its own right.

Yes, the retractable hardtop was very attractive then, and the red and black interior theme was too good. Maisto was almost a new name then, the build quality of this thing was better than another Maisto procured later. Prior to this in Calcutta, in the toy shops all you got were Bburago's (though much better executed) in limited choices.

Anyway, forgot to mention the Peugeot 504 is from Welly.

The Ford Focus that you see in the background, has roll cage inside (rally spec) and all,and is completely white!
