Marty skitching on the Jeep close to Courthouse Square.

The Jeep CJ-7 was a compact 4X4 car manufactured from 1976 to 1986 by American Motors, who owned the Jeep brand.


On October 25, 1985, a skateboarding Marty McFly grabbed onto a blue Jeep CJ-7 in Courthouse Square. The Jeep had no doors or roof, and its licence plate was 726 BXG. The driver was a middle-aged man, who wore a Mountain Dew baseball cap.

At the same street where Marty would accelerate the DeLorean time machine up to 88 m.p.h. in 1955 in order to return to his own time, the driver noticed there was a young man holding onto his car. Marty was late for school because all Dr. Emmett Brown's clocks were exactly twenty-five minutes slow, which is why he was grabbing onto cars.

Marty also performed a similar car-grabbing act, this time while riding a hoverboard, on a hover-converted Jeep Wrangler YJ which landed on Second Street on October 21, 2015 while he was fleeing from Griff's gang.
