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.

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."
