    It's good at least to see the newer vehicles.

    I agree that Cars can go to MK or HS. It would be nice though to do a Test Track update with some newer technologies, a new queue film, maybe a few new surprises in the ride, etc. It wouldn't be an inexpensive upgrade but it is due. Of course, a large majority of Epcot could use some TLC and refurbs but that doesn't seem on the radar for the near future.

    I enjoyed Epcot being Character free, but I was never really big on Characters in the first place. But the Plan is gone, Duffy sealed that deal.

    I doubt that GM would go along with the Cars theme given they just agreed to continue their sponsorship. With the bailout from the Government, they need to advertise for themselves and their vehicles not Disney's animated movies.

    I think Cars would be a bit out of place in Epcot, DHS maybe.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    As an old school Epcot Center guy, I definitely don't want to see Test Track turned into cartoonland. What they did to The Living Seas was bad enough. I hope they do not repeat that mistake.

    From what I understand, it's ONE car that they've added into the mix at this point (presumably for testing?).

    Yeah again... no plans (that I'm aware of) to theme this as "Cars"... it's just that it's the same technology that will be used in the new Cars land attraction at DCA.

    See and I thought they were all one from what I remember... I rode in a blue one on my last trip last week... I wonder if I rode in the new one and didn't know it...

    Wouldn't life be so much simpler if vehicles were all one color? Nothing like standing behine a family with four or five kids, all trying to guess what color car they are going to be in, and then start arguing about what car they want. Shut up, get in, and ride the ride.

    We each take a guess on which color we'll get and then declare the winner. Sometimes you've gotta do something to have a little fun while you wait.
