If you are lucky enough to find your nerd soulmate, then you have to arrive at your wedding in style. And there’s no better way to do that than in the Back to the Future-inspired DeLorean stretch limousine created by Rich Weissensel. Inspired after a meeting with founder John DeLorean at an auto show in 2000, Weissensel began creating custom DeLoreans in earnest. His six-door limo stretches as long as a school bus, and uses parts from five or six different cars. Other impressive creations from Weissensel include a DeLorean roadster and a towering monster truck DeLorean he lovingly calls D-Rex.
No nerd-centric discussion would be complete without a Star Wars mention. Luckily, one fan drew inspiration from a Star Wars marathon and decided to trick out his 1992 Volkswagen bus. At first glance, the bus is covered in an epic custom paint job that makes it look just like R2-D2. However, it’s actually the product of many hours of painstaking Photoshop design, and the careful application of digitally-printed vinyl stickers. Every detail of the droid’s design is perfectly placed. Even more impressive is the fact that the designer has generously shared his design plans on the internet for anyone with an old bus and some time on their hands to take advantage of.
