back to the future

From CNN: DeLorean time machine runs on fuel made from recycled clothes

Tokyo (CNN)Entrepreneur Michihiko Iwamoto has realized a lifelong dream: to own a DeLorean time machine.

And there’s no better time to do so: October 21, 2015, is the date to which Doc and Marty travel in “Back to the Future II.”

Iwamoto’s, recently shipped to Japan, has been fitted with key parts: a speedometer (set to 88 mph), a flux capacitor and a Mr. Fusion, which converts trash into a renewable energy source.

The movie, which Iwamoto, now 51, first watched when he was 21, has made a lasting impression.

“I totally believed that in the future, there would be a car that runs on garbage,” Iwamoto said of the scene in which Marty and Doc fly in a trash-fueled DeLorean in “Back to the Future II.”

“But years went by, and that didn’t happen. So I thought I’d develop it.”
