Doc Brown, The DeLorean and an Electronics Store?

Back to the Future

There are some movies and movie characters that will forever be timeless. There’s Al Pacino in “Scareface“, Jack Nicholson in “The Shining” and of course, Christopher Lloyd’s perfect portrayal of the brilliantly insane mad scientist Doctor Emmit Brown in “Back to the Future“. Now while Lloyd and co-star Michael J. Fox got most of the credit, we all know that the 1981 DeLorean was the real star of the film. Since the movies release in 1985, the DeLorean time machine has become one of the most recognized cars on the planet Earth, and is in fact still used from time-to-time for certain cameo appearances. This can most recently be seen in a commercial for the Argentine electronics store Garbarino. I’ve got to say that while Christopher Lloyd is looking a bit aged, that priceless DeLorean is looking better than ever.

    Dear Ridelusters,

    I always read your page. I also am Argentinian and can confirm that the car used in this ad is not a De Lorean but in fact it is an old Toyota Celica tuned to look like an 80´s time machine.

    Greetings from the south,

    Correction. The delorean is real, the Toyota was used in tests.
