Las Vegas Car Stars brings the Batmobile, the A-Team van and more Downtown

Autobuddy: Oh DeLorean, how we psychotically love you …

It’s just too cheesy and crazy to ignore, and if that doesn’t pull you in, there’s also the opportunity to contribute to the Children’s Miracle Network. Las Vegas Car Stars takes over the Fremont Street Experience this weekend with its parade of famous vehicles including the original Batman Batmobile, the Starsky & Hutch Ford Gran Torino, The A-Team van, Herbie from The Love Bug and more. But the event doubles down on the mobile nostalgia with a special celebration in honor of the 30-year anniversary of Back to the Future. Yes, the flux capacitor-upgraded DeLorean will be Downtown, as will Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson and other cast members. Oscar Goodman will be on hand Friday to present a proclamation—you know, because he’s still sorta the mayor, right?—and Saturday is when the “celebs” show up for appearances and autographs and perhaps a little lightning-induced time travel. Perhaps.
