After watching the Cars franchise of movies, we had a feeling that the people behind Pixar Animation Studios were automotive enthusiasts, and Jay Leno's Garage has proved our suspicions right. For this episode of JLG, Leno hands over hosting duty to another Jay, Jay Ward – the man behind the Pixar Motorama company car show and barbecue.

Marking the 12th running of the event, this year's Motorama sounds like it's the best yet with an assortment of cars from the Petersen Automotive Museum – like Steve McQueen's 1956 Jaguar – and involvement from a number of automakers including General Motors, which brought a C7 Corvette and the Cadillac ELR. Plenty of employees also had their personal cars on display, of which the coolest group might be those shown above. These cars, currently owned and operated by Mark Walsh, were used at Disneyland Autopia ride from 1969 through 1999. There is some great information about these Autopia cars in the latest episode of JLG, which is posted below.

      Better title: "Jay Leno Gives Publicity to Pixar's Mediocre Car Show Without Having to Bother to Attend"

        Only people with positive attitudes are invited. You should send someone who qualifies & they can tell you how awesome it is.

      Is that Jay Ward mentioned in the post related (son? grandson?) to the great animator Jay Ward who created Rocky & Buillwinkle, George of the Jungle and Cap'n Crunch?

      I always wanted to have Autopia car and drive it in the real world. I would have kept it gas-powered, but still cool to have 3 of them.
