Cars 2 the movie

Just saw Cars 2. Tons of Rover presence. Range rovers throughout then series trucks! Pretty cool to see animated Series I I 's. Range rovers complete with land rover badges and series trucks had old school plaques. Best part of the show for me!

Oh yeah forgot to add they ironically made fun of the rover v8 as well. Saying it was the worst motor ever made, an aluminum v8 with Lucas electrics. It even looked just like a 3.9.

Pretty funny.

The movie was not nearly as good as the first one but still very impressive.

Saw it last night with my youngest. We both loved Cars and were excited to see the sequeal. I agree not as good as the first one but it was impressive. #2 seemed rushed and where were the funny animation clips at the end of the movie? But the colors and "cinematography" where awesome and the bolts on the bomb was slick.

The part about the Rover V8 was great. I remember seeing that picture of it and thinking - "that looks like a 3.9" How they brought in the Series and Range Rovers was really good - still chuckling thinking of it. I think there was a red Disco hanging out at the party in Japan too. But what was Miles Axlerod? A 2 door RRC with some other elements?

Axlerod almost looked like a Freelander. I enjoyed the inside joke as well, I wonder if someone at Pixar is a LR owner/fan? Did you catch the joke at no oil underneath a Brit means no oil IN a Brit toward the end?

Yeah, right when i saw the lucas box's i knew exactly what motor they were refering too, bit funny how they claim it to be one of the worst motors ever made, yet many others claim it to be one of the best, as its a lightweight V8 with lots of potential, that was made for over 40 years!

Seeing the 3.9 rover being ragged on was kinda depressing lol
