"Wait a minute Doc, are you telling me that you built a time machine...out of Delorean?"

When you think of iconic movie cars, what comes to mind for you? Near the top of my list is always the 'Back to the Future' Delorean. Arguably the coolest movie car of the 80's, (Batmobile from 1989 is my number one). If you always wanted to own one, good news. Deloreans are making a comeback right here in Texas. You will be able to get a new model really soon.

Let's be honest, we all want the Delorean from the 80's AND with all the 'Back to the Future' gadgets aboard. You can have that right now in North Texas. Here's the thing though, Doc Brown's equipment is not cheap and neither is a Delorean. If you can get one for $40,000 (without all the Back to the Future goodies) that's a good deal from what I'm told. Looks like this one is going for somewhere over $100,000.


Here's the thing, it's worth every penny. Here's what you do, buy the Delorean. Then buy a sports almanac. Then travel back in time to give your 18-year-old self the almanac. Then tell yourself to bet on every sporting event ever. Free money the rest of your life. Nothing bad can possibly happen in this scenario.


Well running into your future self could cause you to go into shock and pass out. The encounter could also create a time paradox, the results of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space time continuum and destroy the entire universe. Granted that's a worse case scenario and risk I am willing to take.
