Not too long ago, we learned that new DeLorean cars would be manufactured beginning in 2017, but they were going to cost significantly more than they did when the car was originally sold back in the 1980s. But if you don’t have the cash to buy your own DeLorean, you’ll just have to settle for being able to see the original DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future when it heads to its new home at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
