Ford Wins Back to the Future Day, Hands Down!

I know you’re probably sick of Back to the Future Day jokes, but the folks at Jalopnik spotted one from Ford that’s too good not to share. For those of you who AREN’T up on your 1980’s time travel comedies, October 21, 2015 was the day Marty and Doc traveled to in “Back to the Future 2”. And Ford is very excited!

If you configure a Ford Focus or Fiesta today on Ford.com, you can add the usual complement of features like GPS, sound systems, etc. And if you’re really feeling flush, you can add the “time travel” package, which gets you a Flux Capacitor for only $1,210,000! That means an SE Ford Focus Hatchback with TIME TRAVEL is only $1,228,640, or $13,309 per month if you lease it. Plus they’ve clearly improved on the original DeLorean design-Ford has helpfully placed the Flux Capacitor right in the center console, so you can see if it’s functioning properly without having to turn around.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to call my bank…I’m sure they won’t have any problem approving me for a $1.2 million auto loan, right?
