Question: Cold Car

What is it that determines the temperature of the outside of the DeLorean during time-travel? I've noticed that when travelling back in time (ie. 1985 to 1955) no temperature change is apparent (or at least the car gets hotter on the outside) whereas when the DeLorean travels into the future, the external of the car decreases in temperature and gets a surface coating of Ice (note Einstein's trip 1 minute into the future, and Marty returning from 1955 to 1985).

If anyone can explain this leave the answer in the form of a post, or e-mail me: tken0@mailcity.com

Cheers,

T

Re: Question: Cold Car

I'm not sure of the actual determining factor. However, I did see a behind-the-scenes shot where they were about to film the scene where Marty has just crashed into the barn and they were spraying the DeLorean with the fire extinguishers and such to make it look cold. I guess it's not very apparent in the final cut if the car is cold.

Re: Question: Cold Car

it could be cold/hot shift. like when objects move away they look slightly red and when they move towards you they look slightly blue. when object goes forward in time it gets cold, when it moves backwards it gets hot

Well, as you know the back to the future movies are filled with inconsistencies and the 'ice on the car' phenomenon is just one of those.
