Lightning McQueen at the Canadian Automotive Museum

The Canadian Automotive Museum (CAM) is excited to announce the arrival of a full scale model of Lightning McQueen from Disney Pixar's Cars 3, now available on Blu-Ray™. 

The iconic main character from Pixar's Cars animated film franchise, Lightning McQueen is part athlete, part stock car. McQueen is voiced in the films by actor Owen Wilson and was named after the late Pixar animator Glen McQueen, who passed away in 2002. According to Cars director John Lasseter, McQueen's shape was influenced by sports cars like the Corvette C6 and Ford GT40, as well as sports stars Muhammad Ali, Charles Barkley and Joe Namath.

Lightning McQueen will be on display in the main gallery of the Canadian Automotive Museum from December 1, 2017 through November 30, 2018. Exciting kids programming is being scheduled throughout the year in conjunction with the display, including fun Family Day, March Break, and summer vacation activities.

Visitors are invited to welcome Lightning McQueen during a public reception as part of the Canadian Automotive Museum's annual Holiday Open House on Friday, December 1, 2017 from 4pm to 7pm. Remarks will take place at 4:30pm.
