- "They [Marty and Jennifer] stopped at the edge of the glass and looked inside at the salesmen circling potential customers like lions reading their attack on smaller beasts. "How come there are no used car saleswomen?" Marty asked. "I've never seen a woman selling cars, have you?" / Jennifer shook her head. "Maybe women can't lie as well as men," she offered. / Marty laughed, turned his gaze to a tricked-out four-by-four pickup truck in the showroom. "Hey, check out that four-by-four," he said. "Wouldn't it be great to take that up to the lake tomorrow night? We could put our sleeping bags in the back... make out under the stars." / "Mmmmm," Jennifer replied. / "Someday, Jennifer, someday," Marty said. "

The Hilux 4X4 is a pickup truck manufactured by Toyota, marketed just as "Toyota Truck" in North America from 1973-95 with no model name mentioned in advertising, promotional material, or on the trucks themselves after 1975.
In 1985, Statler Toyota received a delivery of a new truck painted in black. When Marty McFly returned from 1955, the improved present placed the vehicle in his garage and he had possession of the keys. Its license plate number was 2BAK860.
His plans shifted to driving Jennifer Parker up to the lake; however, Emmett Brown's arrival in the DeLorean time machine from 2015 halted those plans. Marty would return on Sunday to find Biff Tannen waxing his new truck. He drove to Jennifer's house and woke her up from the porch swing he and Doc had placed her on back in 1985A.
Marty and Jennifer drove past Hilldale where they had a recollection of the future, when Douglas J. Needles and his gang drove up beside them and challenged them to a drag race. Marty declined but after being called "chicken", he braced for takeoff. Marty drove in reverse at the turn of the green light and watched as the near lane was soon taken by a Rolls Royce pulling out of a side street, which he might have hit had he continued racing.
Marty drove Jennifer to the site of the DeLorean's destruction along the train tracks when they heard the sound of the pedestrian warning bells at the railroad crossing.
