DETROIT, May 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The May 29, 2006 issue of AutoWeek magazine will provide readers with the 'The Inside Track' into the new Disney/Pixar animated comedy adventure, "Cars."
"This special issue continues to show that AutoWeek is at the forefront of great car stuff. This is the complete insider's guide that car guys must have before they take their kids and grandkids to see this epic animated family- friendly motion picture. We received access to this movie and to the creative geniuses behind it and we are not going to skimp on bringing it to life. This will definitely be a keepsake issue," said Dutch Mandel, editor and associate publisher of AutoWeek.
"Cars" is set inside the world of automobiles. Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson), a hotshot rookie race car driven to succeed, discovers that life is about the journey, not the finish line, when he finds himself unexpectedly detoured in the sleepy Route 66 town of Radiator Springs.
En route across the country to the big Piston Cup Championship in California to compete against two seasoned pros, McQueen gets to know the town's offbeat characters -- including Doc Hudson (a 1951 Hudson Hornet, voiced by Paul Newman), Sally (a 2002 Porsche 911, voiced by Bonnie Hunt), and Mater (a rusty but trusty tow truck, voiced by Larry the Cable Guy) -- who help him realize there are more important things than trophies, fame and sponsorship.
This special AutoWeek "Cars" issue will include: * Special cover art created by Pixar Animation Studios* The making of "Cars" - Where did the idea come from? Who is the genius behind this story? What's next?
* The four key people in the "Cars" family and how they go about making movies.
* Lightning McQueen "interview." The cars are the stars in this movie and each has his/her own personality!
* Racer's Edge: The juicy details that a car guy cannot miss!
