The 30th Anniversary of 1985’s BACK TO THE FUTURE was last year, and while much of the excitement peaked with the October 21st celebration of the actual date (the real one, not the fake ones your friends constantly meme on Facebook) that Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) traveled to the future in 1989’s BACK TO THE FUTURE II, there’s still a lot coming. Take Toyota‘s reimagined version of Marty’s dream truck – a 2016 Toyota Tacoma that’s been decked-out with accessories mirroring the truck that Marty finally gets in BACK TO THE FUTURE III. Or how about the Toyota Mirai Concept – a fuel cell electric vehicle (complete with Delorean mirroring gull-wing doors) that was featured in Toyota’s “Fueled by Everything” video starring Fox and Christopher Lloyd? Both are on display in the Windy City for the very first time at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, where families can check out just what the real future may hold. I checked them out and did a little toyography – with my Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment Toyota and Delorean, along with the Funko ReAction Figure of Marty…
