Seth MacFarlane

Rollin' Like Marty McFly

7/26/2010 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Seth MacFarlane is one Flux Capacitor away from being able to travel back in time -- because TMZ has learned he's the proud new owner of an exact replica of the DeLorean from "Back to the Future."

0723-backto-the-future-seth

Seth's people confirm the "Family Guy" mastermind purchased the DeLorean earlier this month. A source tells us Seth is having about $20,000 worth of customized equipment installed ... making it the coolest thing on wheels since the motorized bar stool.

One source -- who was lucky enough to sneak a peak at MacFarlane's unfinished DeLorean -- said the car already looks "insane."

Note to self: Don't bet against MacFarlane on any sporting events from now on.

He just became cool to me. I'm not a big Family Guy fan but if I had his money I'd do EXACTLY the same thing. Good for you, Seth. Awesome!

This car was actually under-powered. There was a reason that the Doc referenced having to hit 85 MPH to activate the time machine. It was an in-joke, that was pretty much the max speed of this car. It would have been more powerful, but US emission standards mandated that a catalytic converter be installed in models sold in the US, dropping 40 HP off of the 170 HP European version down to 130 horsepower for the American version, causing the disappointing performance.

Well, the movie starts on our Birthday (we share a Bday - Oct 26th) so I can see the initial excitement over it. I wonder if our Bday is still displayed on the flux capacitor :)

This well know "LOW LIFE" is well know for ripping off my work, doing a bad job of it and trying to capitalize on GW's glory. VB is very well known for producing crap, stealing other peoples ideas & Photos, reverse engineering other peoples work (and he can't even do that right), Lying, If you have the unfortunate opportunity to look at his face and hear him speak, you'll beware immediately of his obvious single digit IQ,He was unable to make a go of a Outhouse type restaurant (No Surprise there), He has photos taken of him urinating on a lamp post at USH in public & then He post them on the Internet. Now he takes to post here to advertise his horrible butchered cars. How much lower can this guy go. Warning to all!! He is and always has been a "SCRAMMER"
