Petersen Cars Exhibit

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

The Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles (a city in California) is currently hosting an exhibit of items related to the Pixar film Cars.

We were rather disappointed in the displays. Many of them were framed artwork that was supposedly from the movie, but everyone knows that Cars was computer animated so there was no hand-drawn art. How dumb do they think we are. There were also some little statues of the characters, but the film wasn’t claymantion either. Very, very deceptive.

One nice feature of the exhibit was a gallery of full-size Cars characters in costumes as if they were in different Disney films. Below is a photo of Lightning McQueen in Pirates garb. Also present were Mater, dressed as Winnie the Pooh, and Doc Hudson as Tinker Bell.
