Rather than travelling through time, the 'Back to the Future' fan ended up with a speeding ticket.
California resident Spencer White of Saugus finally decided to take the plunge and purchase the iconic 80s sports car after swithering over whether or not to buy one for more than ten years.
Sadly though, while driving his mother around on Friday night, the draw of the vehicle got the better of him and he ended up putting his foot down in an attempt to reach 88mph - the exact speed that would activate the car's time circuits in the Back to the Future
All the stunt managed to do however was attract the attention of a nearby highway patrolman.
"I was at 88 for about two seconds, and, immediately I saw a police officer behind me," said White.
The fact that he had been busted for going 88mph in a DeLorean wasn't lost on the officer who seemed to find the situation quite amusing, however it wasn't enough to get him out of a ticket.
"Maybe if I had the flux capacitor he would have let me off," said White.
