Radiator Springs Highway Poetry
Sheriff's old, but he's not slow.
In a tribute to the old Burma-Shave poetry signs that once dotted Route 66, Cars Land includes short poems for guests to discover if they enter or exit Carburetor County via the Pacific Wharf route. The signs replicate the originals' white-on-red color scheme and six-sign sequence.
These nostalgic ads are, of course, presented by Lightning McQueen's official sponsor, Rust-eze Medicated Bumper Ointment.
If I'm not mistaken, these verses also appear in the Cars wing of Walt Disney World's new Art of Animation Resort.
