My 1983 De Lorean DMC-12, VIN 16908

Joliet Correctional Center Photo Shoot

One of my favorite films is The Blues Brothers (1980). About 20 minutes south of my home, is the now closed Joliet Correctional Center, or more commonly, “Joliet Prison.” The prison was used during the intro to the Blues Brothers, and today, is a great place to photograph. Wikipedia has a great entry on the prison here. I always wanted to get a good picture of the gate from which Jake emerges in the beginning of the film.

So why not bring my Delorean to the prison to fill in for the Bluesmobile? Yeah, it doesn’t make¬†any sense, but the pictures turned out great.
