    Great Scott! One lucky museum-goer could own their very one "Back to the Future" DeLorean time machine, but there’s a catch.

    “Back to the Future Part II” predicted the Chicago Cubs would win the World Series in 2015 and if that prediction holds true, one fan could become the owner of their very own DeLorean time machine automobile.

    Volo Auto Museum in Volo, Illinois, says it is prepared to give away a 1981 exhibition model DeLorean, valued at $85,000, should the Cubs become champions for the first time in more than 100 years, according to their website.

    The year 2015 was depicted in the 1989 cult film "Back to the Future Part II," which saw Michael J. Fox's character Marty McFly travel to the future, then back to the past (well, an alternate present, if you want to get technical), then really back to the past. For Cubs fans, the film’s bold World Series prediction has been something to look forward to.

    The giveaway is part of a contest scheduled to begin March 21. The contest ends one day before the 2015 World Series game and anyone who visits the museum is eligible to win.
