Back To The Future 3 - Slow Indians
At the part where Marty just went back to the Wild West, he is driving towards the Indians and they are very close in front of him. He starts to reverse and the Indians are right in front of him. He then does a 180 turn and the Indians are further away from him.

Since one is out of gas, why wouldn't they think to transfer the parts from the car that just arrived to the one that has gas (the one Doc has buried)." I always thought of this, too...if you watch the special features on the DVD set, they mention that a possible explinaiton to why they didn't go and unbury the car and get the gas was that they were afraid the cavern might collapse and there would be no DMC. Of course, this makes no sense since they had to go and unbury it in 1855 to send Marty back to 1885 in the first place. I would think that if it is safe to "dig up" 130 years later, it would be safe to go in and get only 6 months later. Not to mention that with a hole in the gas line, not ALL the gas would be able to leak out, and even a DMC would be able to run on "fumes" (as is slang for very little gas in my parts). A piece of tape or something like it (which was around in 1885) would have held the air out enough to get the car started and have gotten it to 88MPH.

But right after he does the 180 they are further away, the 180 would obviously slow him down

I also found it to be a slipup that the indians kept pace with marty, although he's driving a car and there on horses. And for what its worth, Brandon, indians and native americans were the same thing back then. Well, at least called the same thing.

Actually, if you compare the Native Americans' positions, it is obvious that they have moved back a little here and there, because they are from different shots.

The DeLorean can go real fast on a paved road, but remember that we are in the Wild West here. The car is bouncing around so much that Marty just can't go as fast as usual.

I think there was another point missed here. The indians did not think it weird that the car was there? Maybe they slowed down cause they were scared then seeing no threat they sped back up after all the calgary was there Cool note The car came from that cave and went back in it Doc sealed the cave when he first arrived why wasnt the cave sealed with the delorean already inside? After all he was due to die soon.... He couldnt have done it much later...Ooops

Yeagh but later on in the film when they try to pull the car with the horses doc sais "Even with the fastest horse in the world can't go past 33 M.P.H." or something like that and a normal car can go up to 100 M.P.H.

If Doc was supposed to have buried the car later (after Marty parked the DeLorean in the cave which should have been sealed) then after Marty told him about his death, he wouldn't have gone and put it there, for them to dig up 130 years later. And then, Marty would have never gotten it to go to the Wild West in the first place, but then Doc WOULD have put it there, so Marty would go, but THEN Doc wouldn't put it there, so he WOULDN'T go, and then Doc would put it there... etc. etc. etc. Doc's going so crazy about disturbing the space-time continuum with little things like seeing yourself (which they actually did several times), so surely a paradox like that would destroy the continuum too?

Those aren't Indians. They are Native Americans.
