I discovered this amazing video showcasing some work done by a 3d Max artist. Apparently he created all of the models just for his enjoyment. It took 110 days to render! The modeling and camera moves are incredible!
George, maybe you can get some inspiration for your Delorean from this video!
Also, if you watch all the way to the end it gives some technical details about the programs he used, as well as the polygon counts for the vehicles. Plus there's a surprise behind the curtain (literally), but I won't blow it!
