There’s a snowball’s chance in hell that this bad boy will ever see production, but staring at it with a couple of the guys at the office has me wondering why all Tacomas don’t have this option suite available to them.

The tubular bumpers obviously would never make production, but shouldn’t TRD have them at the ready? Let us know what you think of Toyota’s little marketing stunt in the comment section below.

How could anyone possibly have anything negative to say about this?

I think it’s silly.

Toyota should only make it real if the Cubs win the World Series.

As a little kid growing up in Portugal, where you rarely saw those type of trucks, I was amazed to see such a machine at the end of the movie – from that point onward I started looking at pickups (and I´m not talking about Dimarzio´s, EMgs, SD´s, etc) differently – what a great truck and what a great movie!

Wouldn’t have to see “production” but could definitely be a dealer installed option.

I try to think as little as possibly about pre- adolescent pop culture films from the past as well as any blatant marketing schemes based on said films trying to take advantage of some fictional date mentioned therein … especially when they’re poorly executed and CGI’d marketing schemes

I’m going to guess you don’t get invited to many parties.

You sound to be about as much fun as a bag of broken glass. This was not CGI but three actual trucks that Toyota built. I would have rather Toyota grab a few original SR5 extended cabs to restore and build into BTTF trucks but this was an alright effort. A little weak considering the resources available to them and considering that it was mostly just welding up a tube bumper and light bar.

Like it or not, MANY people grew up with that movie. MANY, myself included. That same grouping of people were looking forward to this date as it was what the future was to [i]us[/i]. It was the promise of weird fashion, neon everywhere, flying cars, and hoverboards. That was the future Hollywood promised would come to be. We got some of those things while others are “still in the works.” The people who have grown up with that movie now number larger than any other voting block. Just like manufacturers try to bring something back from the 60s (Mustang, GT40, Camaro, etc…), manufacturers will begin to bring back design cues and things popular in the 80s and early 90s as that is what we grew up with and we now have the funds to justify being catered to. That is our nostalgia and it might be your worst nightmare but there is more of it coming. We will be here with our nostalgia and proper sentence structure for years to come.

You missed the point entirely.

If or when, I ever buy a Tacoma I will be adding the “Toyota” to the back of it.
