RECORDS splattered with dust, cobwebs and rust is like a breath of fresh air to Daniel Stuth, Benjamin Paskins and Barton Worthington.

The self-confessed music buffs purchased Nambour's most treasured business, the Time Machine, last week.

The iconic Currie St treasure was feared to be lost when former owner Shane Sullivan died from cancer earlier this month.

Its sale has been a welcome relief for the community, who had hoped Shane's legendary collection of records, memorabilia and relics would carry on.

New owner Daniel Stuth said buying the Time Machine was a dream come true.

"Ben and Barton used to spend hours here and we all love it for the music memorabilia and vintage record collection," Mr Stuth said.

"We were all just in the right place in our lives to buy into it - it is like living a dream."

The three friends, aged 23, 24 and 25, have big plans for the long-running collection and its dudgeon-like trove.

"We have been flat out changing the shop around to make it more customer friendly and so you don't have to dig as far to get to the really good treasure," Mr Stuth said.

"We want to be able to use the space as a platform for local artists and musicians, reopen the downstairs area as music studio and allows space for art exhibitions."

A full-time seamstress has been hired to alter the hundreds of retro garments on site, as well making room for pieces from a Flaxton collector's first and Second World War memorabilia.

The men also hope to sell memorabilia online through a website and Facebook site.

"There is a big love for pop culture in the community, especially vintage records, clothing and pretty much everything music related. We want the Time Machine to become an underground marketplace and somewhere tourists will want to visit."
