Everything you missed at the Pixar Motorama car indicate

Pixar Studios is the space where they created everything from Toy Legend to Monsters Inc. to Finding Nemo to Wall-e. And Cars -- all three of the Cars movies. But it’s not love Universal Studios where you can purchase a ticket, walk in and look everything from Jaws the shark to a thrilling Quick and the Furious chase to a Norman Bates lookalike dumping a mysteriously body-shaped object into the trunk of his car. No, Pixar is as secret a space as Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory and you’ll never obtain in. Until now. Consider us your small Oompa Loompa.

The Pixar Motorama started out as a tiny company car indicate for employees to indicate off their cars.

“Jay (Ward) and I started doing Cars way back in the early two thousand,” recalled Pixar chief John Lasseter. “We started doing all the research. So this history of Motorama weaves right into the history of the movie Cars.”

About the time they were working on the original Cars, Lasseter and Pixar creative director Jay Ward started noticing that many of their employees had chilly cars. Ward had a side hobby of putting on hot rod shows. So they decided to have Ward organize a car indicate for Pixar employees on the Pixar grounds. Employees would park their cars on the walkway and on the lawn exterior of the headquarters building at lunch. It was a favorite event.

And then it grew. And grew.

“We started it and (held) it every year and presently it’s gotten so large that we do it every two years,” said Lasseter.

This year they decided to keep the indicate on the same day that Cars three was being released nationwide. So the show, which had been a fairly small, sedate affair, became much bigger. The grounds were packed, cars were spread all over the lawn and along the walkways and families of employees crowded in. It was great.

As usual, there was manufacturer participation. Nissan brought a GT-R, Aston Martin brought a DB11, McLaren brought a seven hundred twenty, Porsche brought a pretty black nine hundred eleven, AMG brought a blue GT, there was a pretty new Corvette. Those were all on what Ward calls “the main bricks,” exterior the entryway to Pixar’s Steve Jobs Building.

On the lawn adjacent to that were the Concours cars. GM brought a Turbine car. Jay Leno had two cars, members of the Petersen Automotive Museum brought their own collectibles, including ancient Alfas, Ferraris and Maseratis. The Blackhawk Collection brought a custom car. There was an original Prince sports car that looked love a Ferrari LM. John Lasseter brought his one thousand nine hundred forty-eight Chrysler Town & Country convertible (“It’s love your living room couch,” he said. “It’s so glorious.”)

One corner of the Concours lawn featured characters from the Cars movies: The King, Sarge, Doc Hudson and Jr Moon.

On the walkway were all the employee cars. Our favorite is still Brad Winemiller’s Westfalia camper, but we did love the Porsche Speedster, too.

But the public will never be invited in. So dust off your resume and contact Pixar HR. Can you write? Can you animate? If so, you may be Pixar material!

Jay: It’s a beautiful kind indicate for employees.

John: Or if you’re a companion of Jay.

Jay: Or companion of John. Companion of Jay, works both ways.

Then they both dutifully plugged Cars three.

“Cars 3 opens today,” said Lasseter. “Everybody go look it. You’ll like it. You'll like it!”
