Thanks to internet even the wildest dreams can come true.
And so can the dream of the 7-years-old Vsevolod Bezrukov from Moscow…
More than a year ago the little boy watched “Back to the Future”. Seva was so enchanted by the movie that since then he had been watching it few times per week.
Now his only dream is to drive the car DeLorean DMC-12 and travel back in time. But how can his single parent mother Natalia fulfill such wish? Especially, taking in account that there are only 2 cars of this model in Russia.
Without too many hopes, she wrote the following announcement in one of the local newspapers [translation below].
Owner of the automobile DeLorean DMC-12
Looking for the owner of the sportive car DeLorean DMC-12, who would agree to come (for a reasonable fee) on Saturday, October 27, for the birthday of my 7 years old son. Already for half year he every day surfs YouTube, looking for the videos with this miraculous car. And also watches non-stop “Back to the future”. He knows the ins-and-outs of the car and asks me if we could buy such car. And since I cannot buy it – the most I can do is to turn over the city looking for the good-hearted person, who could give the child one hour of excitement.

Dream comes true
Translated from KP.ru:
Quite unexpectedly, it worked.
On Thursday, someone made a snapshot of the ad and put it in social network. It started being copied by other people and arrived to automotive and parenting forums.
Then, on Friday morning, the car was found!
- I was contacted by the assistants of the businessman German Gorbuntsov, who lives in the UK. It turned out that hundreds of strangers sent him requests to help Seva. After all, many people know that Gorbuntsov is the happy owner of DeLorean, – says Natalia Bezrukova.
The issue was resolved quickly: while Gorbuntsov is currently undergoing the medical treatment in London after assassination attempt, the car stands in the garage in the suburbs of Moscow. However, the miracles haven’t finished here.
- The same day owner of another car called me and said that he would bring his car to my son’s birthday, – said Natalia. – The businessman from Nizhny Novgorod Oleg Karpov didn’t give up this idea even after learning that one car had been found already.
- I asked him, how would he bring it from Nizhniy Novgorod? And he told me – ‘Just sit in the car and come’ – told the touched woman.
Little Seva still doesn’t know what expects him on his birthday. Natalya keeps it in secret from her son.
According to the woman, she is still in the state of shock.
- I could not imagine that it would happen. I’ts like some fairy-tale! Maybe it sounds trivial, but the world is full of kind people.

LeeZoon: There were 8 of them in Russia. The last purchase, as far as I know, was made 4 years ago for $ 12 K. So, it’s possible to buy, though not quickly.в России их было 8. последняя известная мне купля-продажа произошла 4 года назад, сумма сделки $12k. купить вполне реально, но не быстро.
SNeron: Great news! After all, the world is not without good people and Internet works wonders in terms of communication between people.отличная новость! мир, все-таки, не без добрых людей, а интернет творит чудеса в плане коммуникации людей.
pasonyap: Maybe both of the owners also were fans of “Back to the Future”. So they should understand the guy.Наверное оба владельца этих машин тоже были фанатами ‘Назад в будущее’. Так что они пацана должны понять.
