(NEWSER) – The only thing standing between you and your very own flux capacitor is the Chicago Cubs and the death of a 107-year-old dry spell. As the Daily Heraldreports, an Illinois car museum is offering up its exhibit 1981 DeLorean—complete with aforementioned flux capacitor—to one lucky visitor, with the tiny caveat that the Cubbies must first pull off the completely unimaginable and win the World Series this year.
The Volo Auto Museum' publicity stunt is a nod to 1989's Back to the Future Part II,which predicted that "the Curse" would end in 2015. "We thought it would be a really fun promotion for the auto museum and the Cubs," says museum director Brian Grams. "We've had the car here for many years, and always a crowd-pleaser. So, we decided to take a bit of a risk and have fun with it."
