issue after issue and is over 20” long, with metal body panels and a wealth of working lights.
No detail has been overlooked. All of Doc’s modifications and personal touches have been reproduced
inside and out – from the light up flux capacitor and folding seats to the rear end reactor and mess of
cables on the floor.

only $1.95 for the first two issues and parts kits – including free shipping. The next four issues and
parts kits will be delivered monthly for only $10.95 plus $1.95 shipping per issue. Subscribers are also
