Who doesn’t love Back to the Future? Who doesn’t love Michael J Fox? Who doesn’t love the classic time traveling DeLorean? How many people have actually been able to sit inside of the DeLorean? Well we had that opportunity, and the chance to speak with Terry Holler of To the Future. Terry and Oliver Holler travel across the United States with their custom 1982 DeLorean that is a spitting image of the one right from the movies. They do this to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research through Team Fox, and boy is it a hit. We were looking at the line for photographs and it wrapped around their booth, this was no small booth mind you, it had to fit the DeLorean and Marty’s McFly’s 4×4 Toyota Pickup, also did I mention that the backdrop of the booth was the clock tower from Back to the Future? Amazing! What brought them to Silicon Valley Comic Con anyway? A personal invitation from Steven Wozniak himself! For a small donation (with all donations going to the Michael J Fox Foundation) you could take your picture next to the DeLorean, inside the DeLorean, or while riding the hoverboard, and I’m not talking about a silly wheeled device that you stand on, this was an actual hoverboard next to the car!
Terry and Oliver have traveled a lot to promote the Michael J Fox Foundation and entertain audiences. First of all, the car is completely street legal, imagine the looks they get driving that down the road! They’ve driven over 634,000 miles through all 50 states. That’s not all though, besides the US they have also driven through Japan, Canada, Mexico, and Argentina, a truly world wide experience for them and fans of the movies. If you missed them at Silicon Valley Comic Con, don’t fret, they’ll be hitting up other conventions throughout the year, check them out at:
Wizard World St. Louis (April 1 – 3, 2016)
Wizard World Madison (April 8 – 10, 2016)
Wizard World Minneapolis (May 6 – 8, 2016)
Wizard World Philadelphia (June 2 – 5, 2016) with special guests Christopher Lloyd, Michael J Fox, and Lea Thompson!
I got the chance to chat with Terry briefly at SVCC, take a listen:
If you can’t make it out to any of their conventions, you can still donate to the organization through their website To the Future, the Michael J Fox Foundation website, or the Team Fox website. To the Future combined with the foundation and Team Fox have raised more than $450 million since 2000 to find a cure to Parkinson’s disease. Check out To the Future’s Facebook to figure out where you can find them next and follow them on Twitter for pictures of where they’ve been!
