Cars: "Radiator Springs" Cars Land Postcards

pixar cars postcards

When I visited Cars Land at Disney's California Adventure this year (back in April, see my post HERE), I thought it would be fun to get some of the little exclusive "trinkets"/"knick knacks" for my collection to remember our great times there by. The style of many of the items there in Cars Land at the giftshops are a more "touristy" style, stuff like little snowglobes, mugs, antenna toppers, keychains, postcards, etc. to make you feel like you are visiting the real Route 66/Radiator Springs on a roadtrip (at least that's kind of how I saw it, so I embraced that). Little gift shops and gas stations in small towns across the country always have those types of things.

I thought the Cars Land / Radiator Springs post cards looked really neat, so I figured I'd grab a few while I was there! They have a very cool retro/vintage feel to them and some really cool designs. The key locations represented here with these are: Flo's V8 Cafe, the Court House, The Mother Road (Route 66), Willy's Butte, The Wheel Well Motel, The Cozy Cone Motel and Luigi's Tire Shop. Additionally, there are the "Welcome to Cars Land" and "Greetings from Radiator Springs" designs as well- love those.

Check them all out in more detail below!

The back of each postcard looks like this:

These are a standard postcard size of 6" x 4" and come in sets of four or five (I can't remember which ones came with which). They can be found in Lizzy's Curio Shop there in Cars Land (and perhaps other locations, but that's where I got these ones). I believe there are even more there that I didn't get.

If you're a fan of Cars, these are real fun to have! I think I'll be displaying them just on a small bulletin board near my other Cars Land items. I think that would look pretty sweet. A big thanks to my my wife Brita who purchased these for me and included them in a Cars Land themed package for my birthday back in May!

Thanks so much for dropping by and be sure to come back daily for more from my collection! Please contact me if you have any questions or comments. I'd love to hear from you!
