  5. Love the slide guitars and fiddles; these were some of the first "car tunes", so to speak.
    Why, these are even pre Hi-Fi days!
  6. Have to say thank you for your part in making that area the absolute best place on the Disney property. I was floored the first time I saw Cars land at night with all the neon and the racers ride is an absolute blast. I always see new details every time I go.

    I was in Cars land 2 years ago & was absolutely blown away with what you & your team accomplished!

  9. So much cool in that place. My first time there I entered "radiator Springs" just as the sun was setting. What do you know, the music kicked on, the neon started coming uo in the same sequence as the movie. Quite a good show. The killer little details in every square inch of that place blows you away. The waiting line path at the Tow Mater's ride. I parts there that it must have taken a ton of reserve to use as a prop. Had to have been a blast on all parts from design to building that place. I love the overhangs at Flo's being Flathead heads and the spark plugs firing in order. Ramone's gift shop with the hand pinstriping on the edges of the shelving, the Foose painted hoods with the hidden Mickeys... The music...You feel like the movie was actually filmed there. Totally fun experience! Thanks for that!
  10. Few, if any, know that the Cars Ride sits on the ground that once was a 1/4 midget track. Doug Caruthers owned the property. It was acreage behind his Viking Trailer mfg. company. The property was sold to Disney in 1955, and became the parking lot for Disneyland. The photo is me leading the last main event at the "Jelly Bean Bowl". A group of us former 1/4 midget drivers tried to get Disney to place a plaque by the cars ride telling the history of this piece of land. But Disney would not even consider the idea.

    Thanks @HEMI32 (Could not get any sound out of parts 3 or 8)
    Never heard that Dylan song, so cool . . . "Need a dump truck mama to unload my head . . . "

    @Jive-Bomber who was responsible for bending all the neon? Or does Disney have an in-house neon plant? So freaking cool.

    I like the older rides in Disneyland but when I go over to Carsland I'm in heaven! Just wish it was twice as big...
    On a negative note however, it seems that Disneyland just keeps getting more pricey and less of the "working folk" can afford to go with motels, admission, food, etc. I wonder what Walt thinks...?
