We just passed the 30th anniversary of the original Back To The Future movie. (30 years?! Seriously?!) Obviously, for car buffs this immediately brings to mind the ultimate time machine…the DeLorean! (With the flux capacitor option, of course.) Today we look at the history of that iconic car, made in Belfast, with its sleek stainless steel exterior and gull wing doors.

We picked this up as reported on the NBC News site… Two of Toyota’s high-profile hybrid models, notably including the best-selling Prius, are being recalled due to brake problems, according to the Japanese maker.

The maker does not say how many of each model are covered by the recall.
