Last Sunday on our return trip from Albuquerque, NM the family began to look for real life characters and locations that inspired the Pixar Cars movie. The kids love the movie and if I'm honest, I do too. We made every effort to make our way off the freeway on to old Route 66.
On our first venture off Interstate 40 to the classic old route we made it not more than 8 blocks before we spotted a Mater replica sitting at an auto body shop and salvage yard. More photos to follow soon.
