Cars: Brad Winmiler

Following in the same vein as Monday's post, today we have another brand new Disney·Pixar Cars 1:55 scale diecast release from Mattel...Brad Winmiler! He is part of the 2016 "LA Speedway" sub-series (#8/11).

As shown in the screenshot above, Brad is another obscure race fan briefly seen at the start of the big Los Angeles tiebreaker Piston Cup race. How Mattel decides which cars to produce out of the thousands in the stands is beyond me, but hey, I'll take him!

FUN FACT: "Brad Winmiler" is another example of a car who's name was "carified"/modeled after a Pixar employee's. He is named after Pixar employee Brad Winemiller, a visual effects artist who's worked on films such as A Bug's Life, Finding Nemo, Up, Ratatouille and, of course, Cars!

I found this one at my local Target just this past week, so be sure to check yours if you're on the hunt! Best of luck out there to all my fellow Disney·Pixar Cars collectors
