A family’s cross-country road trip served as the inspiration for Cars – Pixar’s last movie before being purchased by Disney. 
 
Following his trip, director John Lasseter hired a Route 66 historian to lead a crew of Pixar animators along the famous road for research. Animators also visited several famous car manufacturers to study how real cars are designed.
 
Some of the film’s story line was inspired by the tales of a barber in the Route 66 town of Seligman, Arizona. One main theme tells how local businesses suffered after the opening of Interstate Highway I-40, which caused traffic to bypass the town completely. 
 
While some of the film’s locations were inspired by real places, many others are car-related. Flo’s V8 cafe looks like a V8 engine, including a circular air filter, tappet covers, spark plugs, pistons, and connecting rods. The cafe’s neon lights on the spark plugs blink in the correct firing order of a Ford flathead V8. Near the town of Radiator Springs stands Ornament Valley, featuring rock formations of famous hood ornaments through the years.
 
The film’s popularity reached new levels when Kelley Blue Book, known for setting vehicle values, rated four of the movie’s cars based on their make, model, and personality.
