HOLLYWOOD--To celebrate the opening of "Cars 2," Pixar and Disney partnered with Kodak, Goodyear, and other sponsors to offer a temporary "Cars 2"-themed amusement park in Hollywood. World Grand Prix Attraction offers activities for kids, along with a special classic-car exhibit served up by the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
Just a short walk from a life-size re-creation of Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater, visitors to the Petersen setup can check out super cars of old, plus concept vehicles that didn't stand the test of time.
Patterned to resemble the classic James Bond 1964 Aston Martin, this life-size mock-up of "Cars 2" superspy Finn McMissile rests near the Petersen Auto Museum's special exhibit at the World Grand Prix Attraction in Hollywood.
Built by John Teverbaugh and Robert Kirkland, this 1957 specially designed and built car was designed to go more than 200 mph and was the first Bonneville speed machine to come with a parachute for slowing down.
