Radiator Springs Curios, Disney California Adventure – Anaheim, California

As I wind down my coverage of Radiator Springs, I’m getting to the less famous places. Though this store doesn’t have any neon, it still had enough character worthy of a picture.

I didn’t remember the building, however. But after rewatching Cars, I confirmed it’s in the movie. The shop is owned by Lizzie, a 1923 Ford Model T 2-door, who was married to Stanley, the founder of the town.

According to my research, this store was inspired by a few places on Route 66, including the Hackberry General Store in Arizona, Sand Hill Curiosity Shop in Oklahoma, and the Continental Divide India Market in New Mexico. As you can see from the signage, of all the buildings, it makes the most direct reference to Route 66.
