Looks like this guy got sick of waiting for the HSC, so made one himself. :D

The styling on that looks horrendous, but once that primer is fixed up and covered with actual paint, it might look a little better. If the builder had not gone so crazy with the vents and the brake lights, it might almost be sort of cool.

If anyone is interested in actually building a car, this might be interesting.

Using something other than a Corvette engine, I might just have to try it in a few years. Turbo 350Z perhaps?

Props to the guy as it's completely homemade. The stainless gives it the orginal Delorean look. It does needs seat belts and like ten airbags before I'll take it shopping though.
