BTTF II: 2015 Texaco Station

Texaco1

We may bemoan the lack of flying cars, and hoverboards but at least gas isn’t $7.25 a gallon.

Never noticed it today, but the ‘car’ has a 2015 California tag just like the DeLorean.

Incidentally, there was a not-really-but-suspiciously-similar-to-MicroMachines-scale ‘playset’ of the Texaco station, and a couple sets of different cars put out for BTTF II. DeLoreans, Hill Valley police cars, the Taxi. Don’t recall seeing this car in the sets, though.

But what’s on the first floor, below the Texaco station? A 7-Eleven, of course! Not even joking.

Not easy to see in the film, but it’s there:

Here you can see the futuristic logo:

It appears to be entirely vending machines, selling Slurpees, Big Gulps, beer and Kodak film.
