The Statler family previously operated Honest Joe Statler in 1885, which advertised "fine horses sold, bought, and traded". In 1955, the business was known as Statler Studebaker. In 1985, the business was known as Statler Toyota.
When Marty McFly talked to Doc Brown while he was staying at the Majestic Arms Inn in 1931, Doc revealed that he parked the DeLorean time machine in the DeSoto dealership parking lot because it was a safe hiding spot as no one was buying automobiles in that time period.
Behind the scenes
- In a deleted scene from Back to the Future: The Game - Episode 1: "It's About Time", Marty McFly stated the name of the business, and could enter the building, where a salesman would try to sell him a new 1931 model DeSoto. In the final version of the game, Marty couldn't interact with or enter the building.
