    'Cars' traveled historic Route 66 to screen - Charlotte Observer 5/21/06

    Posted on Sun, May. 21, 2006

    PREMIERE AT LOWE'S MOTOR SPEEDWAY

    Pixar took time to detail 'Cars'

    Researchers traveled to Detroit, across U.S. on historic Route 66

    PHIL PATTON

    New York Times


    The cars of "the animated Pixar film that premieres in Charlotte on Friday, were inspired by research expeditions to racetracks, styling studios and car shows.
    Inspiration also flowed from the ruins of a Packard plant on East Grand Boulevard in Detroit and from the Detroit Institute of Arts, with its car-factory murals by Diego Rivera -- and from what's left of the legendary Route 66, an artery through the heart of the American Dream.

    Highways historian Michael Wallis, a tour guide and author of "Route 66: The Mother Road," led the Pixar crew along Route 66.
