Pixar loves us

Recommended Posts

Just took my 3 year old to see his first movie in the theaters. IT was CARS 2. Not going to comment much on the movie, but I counted NO LESS than 3 maybe 4 240Z'sin that movie. Seems the folks at Pixar like us.

My family went to see the movie without me. I have a fondness for the franchise because Cars was the first movie I took my son to.

The Incredibles, which I believe was also Pixar, had a number of Datsun Roadsters in it, so somebody over there definitely likes Datsuns. Does anyone have a still shot of a Z from the movie that they can post?

kjohnson2444 posted this pic in another thread showing the characters paying homage to Paul Newman, who played the voice of Doc Hudson in the first Cars movie. They were at the Doc Hudson museum.

Why is the 240 look like he is squinting? All the other cars are wide eyed. I wonder what the animators are getting at. they seldom do anything by accident.

There's also a silver Z in that picture - upper right corner...

I also took my son to CARS2. He's two years old, saw one of the cars, and said, "Z-car-oh" ! Sure enough, the movie was full of them... I remember seeing the gong and it looked a lot like the hubcap with a different logo in the middle.

There were a number of spots where I could swear I saw a Z, blue, orange, silver, and perhaps a yellow in there. Some of the scenes were too quick and I didn't have the remote to control the movie.. :)

Makes me want one of those stick-on sun visor strips that Arne had made a while ago, but an extra long one, with Squinty eyes on it rather than "240Z" or "DATSUN"!! And a smiley mouth mask for the rad opening/valance too!

Pixar is working its marketing magic on me apparently.... MUST GO BUY 'CARS' merchandise NOW......

I'm waiting for them to start selling little Z-car "Cars", they're selling Gremlins and Pacers for Chrissake!

Picked this up in Hong Kong last week. May not have any classic Z projects but still collect the die cast.
