"Only if it turns out that reality is actually nothing more than a holographic illusion created by the interplay of subatomic particles on a vast two-dimensional membrane."

This article covers a subject that has been deemed non-canon by either the author or the Back to the Future licensees, and thus should not be taken as a part of the "real" Back to the Future universe.

Classifieds

The used DeLorean in the classifieds.

The classifieds was a section in the Hill Valley Telegraph where people could advertise goods they no longer wanted and wished to sell.

History[]

The August 11, 1984 issue of the newspaper featured ads placed by sellers named Robert, John and Robin, who were selling a DeLorean DMC-12, a non-working pinball machine and a Ferrari 308 GTS respectively.

Dr. Emmett Brown went on to purchase Robert's DeLorean, which he used to build his time machine the following year; and the pinball machine from John, using the parts from it to create a fake nuclear weapon for the Libyans. However, it remains unrecorded as to whether Robin ever found a buyer for his Ferrari.

Another seller advertising in the classifieds on August 11 was Professor B.O. Beanes, who was having an estate sale and was selling a large collection of vintage books.

Behind the scenes[]

  • There are a couple of other classified ads above that of Professor Beanes in the closing frame of "Science Project", but these are unreadable due to being almost completely obscured by a flyer for Kruge's Pest Control.
