3M makes a 4th gold Delorean for Back to the Future day

Just three gold Deloreans were ever made of the model made famous by Back to the Future - now 3M wants to change that. To make a fourth model, in celebration of the date at which Marty and the Doc (and Jennifer) traveled forward in time to 2015, 3M is bringing out the products.
