10 Flash Drives Masquerading As Awesome Miniature Car Models

Wouldn’t you like to have a 1:18 scale model of the DeLorean from Back To The Future III? Now you actually can! Dave Hersch founded a company called Flash Rods, which manufacture the most unique data storage devices ever: scale models of cars with integrated flash/hard drives! Their flash drives (mini-size) models are priced between $22 to $35 and offer 25 different designs including ’68 Charger, ’68 GT500 Mustang, and the DeLorean Time Machine. They also hand build 1:18 scale models with integrated 750 GB hard drives, as well as mid-sized models featuring USB 3.0 connectivity.

These scale models, especially the Back To The Future limited edition “Red Wheel” DeLorean, are wonderful gifts for any geek.

Definitely! I’d take the red wheel DeLorean or the ’51 Merc! Cool stuff.

If they made a regular-wheeled DeLorean, I’d buy it in a heartbeat!

Either Eleanor or the GT-R

My only complaint: The large drives are USB 2.0?

Mihai T

I noticed that too, but as long as the drive looks like my favorite car, I don’t care about specs. :D

So, the DeLorean must only work on Apples, since it’s a “Time Machine” and all.

Why not a Trabant – it could hold 8MB of data and use a parallel port as an interface?

They all look great. The Dolorean, Eleanor, GT-R, ZR1 and Cobra are my top picks that I’d love to win one of. But I’d also “pity the fool” who’d say no to the A-Team van so I’ll add that to my picks too. I would seriously make a few peeps jealous in the office if I won.

Reply

German Lopez

These are so cool. Deloreans are the best of course followed by Merc and Lincoln.

Flash to the Future! I’d go for the original 1985 red wheel DeLorean or the Shelby. These do make me wonder what a Tesla version would do ;-).

Reply

Victor G

I prefer the Back To the Future “Red Wheel” Limited Edition, but it has 750 GB hard drive, but the 1967 Mustang GT500 Eleanor is better bang for the buck, with a 1 TB hard drive for $10 less.

The Corvette ZR1 is my fav, but they are all so awesome!
