I used to have one just like it. The main problem with that model was the rusting. Otherwise it performed quite well.

Ah, a most clever reference to Back to the Future!
(For those who don't know, the original draft of BTTF had the time machine as a refrigerator, but was replaced by the DeLorean)

Yes, they performed well in their day, but with the advent of the Gravity Drive, the Flux capacitor models are pretty much obsolete.
Still for nostalgia reasons, if the price were right, I wouldn't mind restoring one.
I agree. However, you have neglected to mention several models that are also in existence:
1. The refrigerator model. Zaps you as far back into the land of dinosauria as you'd like. Compact, Lightweight, and easily damaged. Perfect for the infrequent traveler. Cost: $25,000,000.00
2. The Cell Phone Model: We can now time travel via wormholes. The special deluxe Cell Phone Model also comes with a switch that allows you to travel between parallel universes. Cost: $25,500,000,000.00

I don't understand. I thought time machines were impossible to make.
Just fictional inventions by HG Wells and TV shows.
The only possible explanation I see is that some of you guys actually used this model and are from the future, where the machines are readily available.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
PS- How's life in 2000? I'm sure you folks by now love those flying cars!

I didn't actually see it at ebay, but local news here reported on a guy who owned a recording studio somewhere in (I think) North Vancouver, and was auctioning off the urinal. Evidently he thought big, big dollars would be paid out to own the receptacle that a whole slew of famous recording artists had befouled. He made a point of mentioning that all of the Rolling Stones had used it.

You must be from a different time than me, I thought these were banned in 2031, when president Schwarzenegger disappeared...........?
They were banned. But then, President Schwarzenegger mysteriously reappeared in 2042 looking like he did in 1994. The guys at the top were very suspicious of this fact and reinstated the units so everyone could help find out if it is in fact the real Schwarzenegger or a Terminator sent back through time by Skynet.
Only time will be able to tell the outcome of this situation.

The refrigerator model. Zaps you as far back into the land of dinosauria as you'd like..
That's an absolutely false claim! It won't ever bring you further back than the Great Ice Age (about 1 million years ago), because that's were it's powered from. Don't buy this item guys! Or bid substantially lower if you do.

Wow, Now I can go back and see the Red Sox win the World Series. I never thought I'd be able to do that. Thanks for the tip.

Good thing, too. Otherwise, the BTTF legacy never would have existed. Can you imagine Marty McFly cruising around in a refrigerator? Ugh! Talk about a box office flop...
