A white 1976 Chevrolet Nova was George McFly’s car in the first 1985th timeline of 1985 film “Back to the Future”. He lent that car to his work supervisor Biff Tannen, who totaled it while drinking and driving at the same time. Biff then blamed George by claiming the car had a blind spot, and forced him to pay up to have his suit dry-cleaned as he had spilled beer over himself in the crash.
Marty McFly had been planning to borrow the car to take Jennifer Parker to the lake, but thanks to Biff these plans were ruined.
Quote from “Back to the Future” (1985)
“As he drew closer, Marty saw that it’s front end was completely smashed, as if someone had driven it into a wall. Nearby stood Marty’s father and Biff Tannen, watching in silence as the truck driver unhitched the damaged vehicle.”
