Back to the Future day today!

Postby akirk » Wed Oct 21, 2015 12:49 pm

As the date when Marty & Doc Brown went back to the Future there is considerable news coverage around the film's predictions of the future and whether they have been met...

An interesting summary of travel predictions from the past and for our future here:

and if you haven't seen the films I believe they will all be shown tonight - do watch them

Im sure (without checking) that they used an e30 with some funky stuck on wings and vents to illustrate what future cars might look like. Sadly they are far less amusing to look at.

Edit.

I checked and was wrong. Close... ish.https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=back+ ... jEVqQdM%3A

On the 21st October I'd rather go back to the past and remember Trafalgar!
