Rob and Big try to kick it back to the 70's with a special time traveling device.
After Rob finishes working on an animated movie, Rob and Big walk back to their car and stop to check out a black van decorated with a mural of a half-naked girl surrounded by swords and blades. Big is impressed by the artistry, claiming he likes its retro style, while Rob contends it's too much of a throwback to the 1970s. The debate reminds Rob that he has something back at the house to show Big, and the two quickly head home.
In the car, Big complains about the smell because there's still remnants of pony poop in the backseat from Mini Horse. They both agree that they need to find a more practical ride for Mini from now on.
At home, Rob reveals he has a time-travel machine called a Hyper Dimensional Resonator. Naturally, Big doesn't believe him, so Rob digs through his closet and pulls out a crazy contraption. To prove to Big that he isn't full of it, Rob makes Big test out the machine. Once Big is all rigged up, Rob reads the absurd directions out loud and the two wait anxiously for Big to be whisked away to another dimension. When nothing happens, Big concludes that his weight must be holding him back. To get to the root of the problem, Rob calls the guy who sold him the machine, Mr. Gibbs.
As they wait for the mysterious Mr. Gibbs to call back, Rob shows Big his ingenious idea for Mini's new ride -- a horse trailer. Big claims the trailer is lame and they shouldn't use it. But Rob later discovers that Big has sent the trailer to the shop to be pimped out.
When Mr. Gibbs calls back, he says he can't help Rob and Big with their time machine and refuses to meet with them face-to-face. After Mr. Gibbs calls Rob and Big "aliens," Big decides he has little faith in Mr. Gibbs, and even less in the time machine.
Rob decides the problem with the time machine must be Big's lack of faith, but Big jokes that it probably has something to do with his race. Rob and Big realize they need to find someone to answer their questions -- ASAP! Rob searches the Internet and comes across a man who claims to have used the same time machine. The only problem is, the guy lives in Canada.
Since Rob has to know whether the machine really works, the dynamic duo fly to Canada to seek out Dr. Z, a self-proclaimed "time travel expert." Dr. Z claims he has traveled back through time and made his car disappear. Rob totally believes him, while Big still isn't swayed and thinks the whole thing is a joke.
Rob, Big and Dr. Z agree to meet later on at Rob and Big's hotel to test out the time machine. Before they get together, though, Big changes into '70s attire to show Rob he has faith in the machine. But to Rob's dismay, the time machine once again does absolutely nothing. Rob blames Big's bad attitude, so he decides to try it himself. But, alas, Rob just finds himself standing there strapped into a useless gadget. Because of this final failure, Rob says his faith in time travel is destroyed and Big smashes the time machine to pieces.
When Rob and Big arrive back in L.A., Rob is surprised to find that Big's alterations to the horse trailer include a painting -- a la the black van -- of Rob, Big, Meaty and Mini dressed as ancient Roman warriors. Rob and Big are excited about their new stylish ride and can't wait to take it -- and Mini -- out for a spin!
