Welcome Back to the Future's fans and enthusiastic codegolfers.

Let's begin with this simple statement : Marty arrives in 2015 in one month (On october the 21st !). Therefore I propose we use the time remaining to pay him and the saga the best homage we can.


Marty left for 2015 on October the 26, 1985. Thus, you will have to write 3 code snippets of respective length 10, 26 and 85 in the language of your choice. Once executed, I'd like to see a visual representation of at least one of the 3 following symbols of Back to the Future :

The Delorean

enter image description here

The Logo

as seen here :

Or (since Marty arrives in 2015 in the 2nd movie), the Grays Sports Almanac :

enter image description here

I don't excpect a copy of those images which are just examples. I expect your creatives ways to display one of those symbols from the Back to the Future franchise.

The rules

  • This is a popularity contest that will stop at the end of the countdown (i.e. october 21st). Highest upvoted answer by then wins.
  • You have to stick to one language for the three snippets.
  • The 3 snippets can act separately to produce 3 results or together and produce one bigger result.
  • You can use any language you'd like, even Piet if you want.
  • You can of course use a language that have already been used as long as the result clearly differs from the first answer.
  • The visual representation can be anything you'd like, from ASCII art to producing a JPG file. It can even be an animation if you feel like it.

Additional Information

The format of the answer can follow something along the line :

Snipet length 10


Snippet length 26


Snippet length 85

  • \$\begingroup\$ Welcome to PPCG. This question comes under the standard complaint "this is an art contest, not a programming contest" (potentially it's a literature contest in this case.) An example of a narrower question (which would be on topic) would be a code-golf to draw the logo of the Delorean Motor Company (but you would have to specify exactly how it would be drawn.) Writing a good challenge is hard. Feel free to post your challenges in meta.codegolf.stackexchange.com/q/2140/15599 for feedback before you post. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Sep 22, 2015 at 14:12
  • \$\begingroup\$ @steveverrill I did exactly what you suggested last, I'm waiting for some more feedback on this challenge in order to narrow it properly. Thanks for your comment ! \$\endgroup\$
