DeLorean owners are getting their vehicles ready to commemorate the day that Marty McFly traveled to in the second “Back to the Future” film. Marty traveled from Oct. 26, 1985 to Oct. 21, 2015, to save his two children in the 1989 film.
As Oct. 21, 2015 approaches, it’s interesting to note that most people aren’t walking around in futuristic space outfits that self-adjust.
They aren’t using self-tying shoelaces, viewing holographic billboards or commuting on hoverboards or in flying vehicles on a highway in the sky.
Marty McFly’s version of the future when he travels 30 years into the future from 1985 to 2015 in “Back to the Future Part II” doesn’t quite match up to today’s everyday life.
But the famous DeLorean is still around.
Charles Campion of Loveland and a few of his friends are planning to commemorate the film with a ride through town in their DeLoreans on Wednesday. The car is well-known for its unique body style, side doors that lift upwards and of course, its capability to travel through time.
“I didn’t get the flux capacitor on mine,” Campion joked on Sunday about the device that made time travel possible in the film franchise. “Sometimes you can’t afford everything.”
