I’ve never been too interested in the movie Cars (only watched the first one and it didn’t make too much of an impression on me) but I’ve heard of the weird trailer for the new movie where it looks like Lightning McQueen fuckin dies and it got me curious. Today I finally watched it and I was thinking…

We see a race going on and we hear the announcer narrate McQueen’s accident but we don’t see the cars’ faces. Like, not even a glimpse of them. We don’t get any close ups of the audience either. It’s almost like they’re not anthropomorphic cars in it. Almost like… we’re seeing an accident happening to a person driving a regular car?

Like, I think it’s kind of unlikely that Pixar would go in this direction with a franchise mainly aimed at small children but here’s an edgy theory for you all:

What if, prior to becoming a part of the Cars “reality”…

Lightning McQueen was a human pilot?

Rohner’s Auto Parts 3rd Annual Collector Car Gathering and Customer Appreciation Day Willmar, Minnesota July 2016 My Dad used to bring along as he would get parts for the family car. As a little car freak, I loved running around checking out all of the different cars. I bought my first car before I had my license and I had to make many trips to Rohner’s to get that car road ready before I passed my road test at 16, I have been going there ever since and bringing friends along and getting them hooked as well. It was a great day and I heard many great experiences people had finding parts to fix their cars. I feel all of us should throw them an appreciation party.
