HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) - It may not time travel, but the DeLorean sports car is finding its way into the future even without a flux capacitor.

The Orange County Register says people are having DeLoreans outfitted to resemble the car from the 1985 movie "Back to the Future."

DeLoreans, with their stainless steel bodies and gullwing doors, were built in 1981 and 1982 before the original company collapsed. The brand's now owned by DeLorean Motor Co. of Huntington Beach.

General Manager Cameron Wynne says "Back to the Future" has been a huge part of his business. Company mechanic Danny Botkin has built six movie replicas so far at about $45,000 each.

The company's also working on an all-electric version - although it won't need the 1.21 gigawatts required by Doc Brown's car.
