Businessman David Abraham bought the De Lorean two years ago - and today received a visor for the car, signed by Christopher Lloyd and Bob Gale, who co-wrote the smash comedy.

Co Armagh man David, who hires out the De Lorean for special events, said: "It's not everyday you can say that Doc Brown has signed a bit of your car.

"I was surprised to see this show up in the post this morning. I suppose it's fitting with October 21st being Back to the Future Day.

"I am over the moon," said David.

He explained: "There's a Back to the Future musical opening in Manchester next year for a run before moving onto the West End.

"The guy Steven, who organised the signed visor, owns a time machine conversion. He asked on the group's Facebook page if was anyone was interested in getting their visor signed for free. I didn't need to be asked twice.

"He told him he was only doing it for fellow owners," said David.
