    We really need to talk about how awesome this girl's school commute is.

    Her name is Molly WIckenham, and she lives in Deal in Kent.

    And here she is with her dad, Steve.

    He bought the car, which was turned into the 80s time machine by Universal Studios in the run up to film's 25th anniversary, back in 2010. Steve has actually added extra features to it since he bought it, so that even the biggest Back To The Future fans wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

    He's installed a sound system so it blasts 80s tunes as he drives around, neon lights, and GET THIS – a gadget to blow CO2 from the bumpers so it imitates the moment Marty and Doc travel back in time.

    He told Caters: "We certainly turn a few heads. There are always people waving and beeping at us when we drive past."

    "There certainly isn't anyone else at the school gates with a flux capacitor!" he added.

    Molly wants to drive the car when she turns 17.

    Steve said he thinks he's raised the value from the £47,000 he paid for it to between £75,000 and £100,000.

    He told Caters: "The original from the film is in such a state of disrepair that it's not driveable so this as close as you can get really."

    "Even though we get some funny looks, we love the car. My wife bought it for me as a gift and it's great that it's not just a show piece. It is road legal and we are always taking it for a spin."

    And Molly told Caters: "It's the best way to get to school and all my friends are jealous that I get such a cool lift."

    And Doctor Emmet Brown said: "The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?"
