This ‘Back to the Future’-Inspired Volkswagen Bus Can Be Yours for $90k
Cortland Finnegan had a perfectly respectable nine-season career in the NFL, racking up 18 interceptions, four touchdowns, a Pro Bowl and almost $30 million in the process. The 33-year-old former cornerback won’t be making the Pro Football Hall of Fame or anything, but those are still some stats to be plenty proud of—and a nice chunk of change that he has hopefully socked away for his family to enjoy for decades.
We’re not sure what Finnegan has been up to since retiring in 2015, but we do know he’s at least spent some of his earnings on a totally badass mode of transport that, to be honest, has probably eclipsed anything he ever did on the gridiron. According to Inside Hook, Finnegan asked Florida’s BLVD Customs to outfit an already-gnarly 1967 Volkswagen Microbus—you may have hotboxed in a model just like it—with iconic features straight out of Back to the Future. The best part? Now he wants you to have it.
Finnegan’s tricked-out bus comes equipped with gullwing doors, reminiscent of the ones on the DeLorean DMC-12 that Doc Brown and Marty McFly drove to traverse through time and space in the beloved film series. On the dash, you’ll see a set of nifty time machine controls, one of which corresponds with the Flux Capacitor that sits between the cockpit and the main cabin. When you aren’t gawking at the delightfully tacky, orange and yellow upholstered seats, enjoy a movie on the LCD monitor—just not Part III, because Part III kinda sucks.
With a 1.5-liter engine and four-speed transmission, no word on whether or not the bus can hit the 88 MPH required to travel back to 1955 (or whichever date you’d choose to prevent future calamity, like maybe November 7, 2016), but at least you’ll look cool while stalling out. Buy Finnegan’s bus for $89,995—you have $89,995 to burn, right?—at Velocity Motorcars.
