The Hill Valley 1980s Car Expo was held on August 8, 2015 in Hill Valley. It was an event full of nostalgia for the 1980s. Attendees were dressed as characters from movies or wearing T-shirts from slogans from that decade.
The main attraction was a contest for the best car from the 1980s. Doc Brown entered his DeLorean in the contest, and won first prize, 10% off a hover conversion at Goldie Wilson Hover Conversion Systems. To get the money he needed for this and the Mr. Fusion, he searched the internet for the best investment to make, then traveled back to April 18, 1938 to pick up several new copies of the first issue of Action Comics.
