Disney’s Real-Life TOW MATER

I love attending the special events in Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford Museum. In 2009 I took the following picture during the Motor Muster car show:

Real Tow Mater

Remind you of anyone?

The character of Tow Mater in the Pixar film Cars was all brown and rusty when we first met him. But we learn via a flashback that he was once quite a looker! He was all clean and shiny and… blue.

The owner of this vintage tow truck did a nice job of restoring her. The mechanical aspects of the towing apparatus make for a good shot! Although I don’t think the plastic cooler is period specific.
