Oliver & Terry Holler -Our Mission
facts and Stats
Parkinson’s disease (often abbreviated as ‘PD’) is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that often impairs the sufferer’s motor skills and speech, as well as other functions.
As many as one million Americans suffer from Parkinson’s disease, which is more than the combined number of people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy and Lou Gehrig’s disease. Approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease each year, and this number does not reflect the thousands of cases that go undetected.
PD is both chronic and progressive. At present time, there is no cure — but we’re going to the future.
The Purpose of our mission
We are all affected by this disease, whether personally or through friends, family members, and even those in the public eye. We believe the discovery of a cure will translate to many other diseases as well.
A growing number of years ago, a doctor gave Oliver six months to live, with a diagnosis of terminal cancer. This news inspired them to accelerate a ‘bucket list’, and within a very short time they did something crazy and impractical. They hand-built their dream car: a DeLorean Time Machine from the movie Back to the Future. Fortunately, the doctor’s time table was incorrect and they continue to share the joy their car has brought them with the rest of the world, while helping cure a disease along the way.
The Hollers joined Team Fox, a branch of the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research after hearing that Michael himself has the disease. This organization is a focus due to their admiration for Michael J. Fox, and his inspiration through the Back to the Future trilogy. His optimistic approach in dealing with Parkinson’s is an example that shows everyone can do something to give back.
The Hollers continue their adventures with speaking engagements around the world. They appear in various books on the Back to the Future subject, are featured in the film ‘Back In Time’ and have their own publication ‘Time Traveling,’ which is in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress in Washington D.C.
About the Car
The Team Fox DeLorean Time Machine is a functioning vehicle. It is road-worthy, street legal and comes with an internationally licensed and insured driver. Appearances are secured with a deposit and signed agreement. Pricing is simply based on the costs of getting the car 'to and from' events from South Carolina (distance traveled and the days involved.) We also contribute a portion to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

Renting the DeLorean
Renting the Team Fox DeLorean Time Machine can make a tremendous impact on your guests, staff, and even the casual observer. We've rented our vehicle to several excellent companies that wanted to leave a lasting impression. When a VIP from Sherwin Williams wanted to make a grand entrance inside the Presidential Ballroom of the Opryland Hotel, he contacted us! The world-class New York Marriott rented our DeLorean for their staff appreciation day, taking digital photos of all the members and printing them as gifts.
Whether your goal is to inspire, reward, boost morale, increase sales, or simply impress, we can help you achieve this goal — and more! In addition to photo opportunities, renting the Team Fox DeLorean Time Machine can lead to outrageous promotions! Hold a raffle for one lucky winner to 'blast off' on a chance-in-a-lifetime ride, co-piloting up and down the boulevard, or around the city! The possibilities are endless.
We love touring to special events. Please provide us with your contact information and other relevant details about your event such as the location, event dates, and the type of event you're hosting and we'll be happy to work with you to make your event the most spectacular, jaw dropping, unforgettable experience of all time! Since some appearances are scheduled as much as two years in advance, contact us regarding availability as soon as possible. The Team Fox DeLorean Time Machine’s professional event specialists are Terry and Oliver Holler.
