    Not sure I would call installing a new shell on a Delorean a car company. Something funny is going on. He's either yanking chains or trying to raise a LOT of capital fast.

    I cringed when I saw this on Autoblog... I guess... more power to him? Might have been easier to do a custom line with a brand lie Scion though.

    Foolish at best!

    He's a Roadster owner, he should know how hard it is to do that. His money would be better spent invested in Tesla Motors. He many know how to make a beat but he's no Elon Musk.

    That car looks like a plastic Delorean.

    To be fair, the (very crappy) engine is in the back. It does look strange though.

    I've met Will, and he seems like a great guy and has a wonderful sense of humor, but I hope his "car company" doesn't end up being a pointless money-hole!
