HUBBARDSTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Have you ever dreamed of having a time traveling car in your garage? A father and son from Hubbardston did and now they are the proud owners of the DeLorean time machine and a barn full of time traveling mementoes from "Back to the Future."

Bill Shea and his son Patrick have one of the largest "Back to the Future" collections in the world, they told WBZ's Matt Shearer. Their two-level barn full of movie mementoes includes a DeLorean replica, four cars used in the films, Marty's leather jacket, Doc's "Brain Wave Analyzer" helmet, Doc's remote control, the future binoculars, and much more.

Matt Shearer toured the barn and had a chance to sit behind the wheel of an exact DeLorean replica, the only difference being a Massachusetts inspection sticker.

Bill Shea has no idea how much the extensive collection costs, "Cause I don't want to keep track, but I have a very very understanding wife," he said.

The Shea's offer private museum style tours of their collection. All proceeds from the tours are donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. Other "Back to the Future" lovers have tried to get a piece of the collection, but the Shea's don't want to give it up.

"I've had several offers, none of which I am accepting because we're just having too much fun," Bill Shea said. "I've decided I'm going to do my very best to spend my kids inheritance," he joked.

Patrick Shea is supportive of his dad's collection and enjoys sharing it with others.

"[Guests'] overwhelming joy when they see these things, we hope that that sticks with them for a long time and it also prompts them to watch the movies again," Patrick said, telling Matt Shearer he watches the film at least 25 times a year.

In the words of Doc himself... Great Scott!
