Back To The Future Cars You Need To Know


Back To The Future Cars – This movie series Back to the Future is a 1985 American science fiction film directed by Robert Zemeckis. Written by Zemeckis and Bob Gale, it stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover, and Thomas F. Wilson. Set in 1985, the story goes thus Marty McFly (Fox), a teenager accidentally sent back to 1955 in a time-traveling DeLorean automobile built by his eccentric scientist friend Doctor Emmett “Doc” Brown (Lloyd). Trapped in the past, Marty inadvertently prevents his future parents’ meeting from threatening his existence and is forced to reconcile the pair and somehow get back to the future.

Back to the Future was conceived in 1980, by Gale and Zemeckis. They were desperate for a successful film after numerous collaborative failures, but their idea was rejected over 40 times by studios because it was not considered raunchy enough to compete with the successful comedies of the era. A development deal was secured following Zemeckis’ success directing Romancing the Stone (1984). Fox was the first choice to portray Marty, but he was unavailable; Eric Stoltz was cast instead. Shortly after principal photography began in November 1984, Zemeckis determined Stoltz was not right for the part and made the concessions necessary to hire Fox. This included re-filming scenes already shot with Stoltz and adding $4 million to the budget. Back to the Future was filmed in and around California and on sets at Universal Studios. Filming concluded the following April.

The Back to the Future movie series featured numerous cars identified 55 separate automobiles and trucks in the movie series. Let take a look at some of these gorgeous cars that got the world talking and the role they played in the movie.

This was the car that Jennifer Parker’s father drives into downtown Hill Valley to pick her up. Jennifer Parker’s father, Danny Parker Jr., drove an orange wood-panel 1984 AMC Eagle in 1985. Its license plate was 1J V8988.

In 1985A, the Parker residence had a wrecked AMC Hornet parked in the front yard, which may or may not have belonged to Mr. Parker, as there is the possibility that the house wasn’t actually occupied by the Parker family in that particular ABC timeline.

Mr. Parker’s AMC Eagle made one brief final reappearance in the Parker residence’s driveway when Marty McFly drove up there in his Toyota 4×4 to wake Jennifer up, after the Grays Sports Almanac had been destroyed in 1955, restoring the timeline.

The BMW 733i in 1985 with license plate number 3A709T8 belongs to the McFly family and was driven by George McFly. Before Marty McFly went back to 1955, Biff Tannen had borrowed and totaled another car owned by George, a Chevrolet Nova, indulging in alcohol while on the wheels ruining Marty’s plans to go up to the lake with Jennifer Parker for the weekend.

After Marty returned to what turned out to be an altered and improved present, the car changed to a BMW, in one piece, and Biff was waxing it with the two coats of wax George liked.
