Toyota City, Japan, Jan. 29, 2015 — Using a Camry Hybrid prototype and a fuel cell bus, Toyota Motor Corporation will bring a brand new technology to the streets of Japan for testing this year.

Filed under: Truck , Auctions , Toyota , Celebrities , TV/Movies With DeLorean time machine replicas thick on the ground, it was only a matter of time before someone started recreating the other vehicles in the McFly garage. At the end of the first Back to the Future movie, Marty returns to 1985 to find his sweet-looking Toyota SR5 truck all waxed and ready for his date. That truck always did look great in the movie, and now’s your chance to own this close facsimile. This Back to the Future replica Toyota is on eBay with a price of $14,500, which the seller claims is half of what’s been invested. Perhaps that’s true, but it’s still a nearly 30-year-old truck that’s covered 280,000 miles. The seller does say the 22RE engine has been recently rebuilt, along with the rest of the drivetrain, and there’s new paint, too. The attention to detail is admirable, and if you’ve always admired Marty’s ’80s-chic 4×4, now’s your chance to own it. eBay Find of the Day: Back To The Future Marty McFly 1985 Toyota SR5 pickup tribute originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 05 Aug 2013 08:31:00 EST.
