Mater Private Eye at Junkyard Jamboree

Continuing yesterday's look at the Tall Tale props in the Mater's Junkyard Jamboree queue, we pass by the window from the Private Eye short film.

Below the window, notice the intentional misspelling of "Lightyear Tires." I'd originally thought it represented the way Mater would misspell it in his imagination, but mwh1980 reminded me in the comments that these are the counterfeit tires Mater was investigating.

It's a fantasy world (Mater's recollections) within a fantasy world (Radiator Springs) within a fantasy world (DCA)!


  1. Actually the 'Lite Yeer' tires are counterfeit tires, that Mater was investigating about in the short.

    1. D'oh! How'd I forget that -- and from one of my favorite Tall Tales to boot?!? Thanks for the correction! :)
