    Today, I hopped in Comrade Trabi to go to work and...

    The time travel warning thing went off!
    It detected a large piece of stainless steel in the time travel dimension!
    Someone must be trying to time travel in a Delorean, or maybe a pizza oven.

    So I checked the calendar... Ah hah! Today is 21 October, 2015, Back To The Future Day!

    That's right, today is the day depicted in one of the Back To The Future movies.
    If you have a Delorean, be careful today, as one is on its way from 1985, and intra-dimensional collisions seldom end well.

    Those that time travel in Trabants have nothing to worry about, as Duroplast is especially well suited to time travel. Only the British came close to an effective Duroplast substitute, with a blue wooden box thing.

    Thank you for the warning. Unfortunately, mine is on jack stands as I try and replace the lower control arms.

    Of course we know the Soviets were the first to perfect time travel. And flying cars. And hoverboards. Well OK hoverboards were invented in the Socialist sister state Hungary on a shoestring budget.

    The Hungarians merely popularized the Hoverboard.
    It was actually invented in the People's Republic of Albania, during the Hoxha regime under appallingly severe conditions.
    Things were so tough, they couldn't even afford skateboard wheels, so they figured out how to make a skateboard without wheels.

    You're right about the flying cars, though. Here's proof:

    Recently discovered that Doctor Who drove a Trabant in some of the earlier books! This revelation was sparked by a lovely 601's fleeting appearance on the latest TV series last week.

    But, what else would he drive? Bigger on the inside than you'd think, and full of strange other-worldly technology!

    I'm a huge BTTF fan, was hands down my favorite movie as a kid and I've longed for a Delorean ever since!

    In 2010 I had the pleasure of meeting the great Christopher Lloyd, completely by accident on an Amtrak train en route to Chicago. He was such a nice bloke in person and although the meeting was brief, it was great to meet one of my childhood heroes!

    Take care on the road and beware of hoverboards. The half dozen or so Deloreans here in SA would have been cruising around proudly on Wednesday!
