Back to the Future 4×4
In 1985, Statler Toyota received a new truck painted in black. When Marty McFly returned from 1955, the improved present placed the vehicle in his garage and he had possession of the keys. Its license plate number was 2BAK860.
Marty McFly: [sees a tow truck pull up with a 4×4 Toyota on the flat bed] Check out that 4×4. That is hot. Someday, Jennifer. Someday. Wouldn’t it be great to take that truck up to the lake? Throw a couple of sleeping bags in the back. Lie out underneath the stars.
While filming the ‘parking’ scene with Marty and young Lorraine in the car, the production crew decided to play a practical joke at Michael J. Fox’s expense. The scene called for Fox to drink from a prop liquor bottle filled with water and do a spit take when he sees Lorraine with a cigarette. However, the prop liquor bottle was switched for one which contained real alcohol inside. Fox, unaware of this, performed the scene and drank from the bottle, only to discover the switch.
The Hilux 4X4 was a pickup truck manufactured by Toyota
His plans shifted to driving Jennifer Parker up to the lake; however, Emmett Brown’s arrival in the DeLorean time machine from 2015 halted those plans. Marty would return on Sunday to find Biff Tannen waxing his new truck. He drove to Jennifer’s house and woke her up from the porch he and Doc had placed her on back in 1985A.
Marty and Jennifer drove past Hilldale where they had a recollection of the future, when Needles and his gang drove up beside them and challenged them to a drag race. Marty declined but after being called ‘chicken’, he braced for takeoff. Marty drove in reverse at the turn of the green light and watched as the near lane was soon taken by a Rolls Royce, which he might have hit had he continued racing.
Marty drove Jennifer to the site of the DeLorean’s destruction along the train tracks when they heard the sound of bells.
[on the phone while all the clocks chime at once]
Dr. Emmett Brown: Are those my clocks I hear?
Marty McFly: Yeah, it’s 8:00.
Dr. Emmett Brown: Perfect! My experiment worked! They’re all exactly 25 minutes slow!
Marty McFly: Wait a minute. Wait a minute, Doc. Are you telling me that it’s 8:25?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Precisely.
Marty McFly: Damn! I’m late for school!
[hangs up, grabs his skateboard and rushes out]
In the opening sequence, all of Doc’s clocks read 7:53 (25 minutes slow) except for one clock. It is on the floor next to the case of plutonium and it reads 8:20. There’s also a black and white picture of a man hanging on the town hall clock of Hills Valley, the way it happened right before the lightning strikes it in 1955.
Huey Lewis, songs, ‘The Power of Love’ and ‘Back in Time’ are featured on the movie’s soundtrack, and also wrote Marty’s audition song (which is a re-orchestrated version of ‘The Power of Love.’)
