It's been a terrible year or so for fans of the Disney/Pixar production Cars. We've had to put two of the characters in the junkyard for good. Doc Hudson/The Fabulous Hudson Hornet and Filmore have passed on to the open road in the sky. Lightning McQueen also had a stint on suicide watch after overdosing. So let's go in order: Owen Wilson (Lightning McQueen) is put on suicide watch after overdosing on pills In August of 2007. In June of 2008 George Carlin (Filmore) passed away of heart failure. And last but certainly not least Paul Newman (Doc Hudson/The Fabulous Hudson Hornet) passes away September 27th of 2008. What's to come for the future of Radiator Springs? Does any of this affect the making of Cars 2? Is there a Cars curse? I really hope there aren't any problems and no curse. To Owen Wilson I hope all is better with the depression. And to the families of George Carlin and Paul Newman I send my condolences and best wishes.
Is there others like me? Am I the only one that puts on the Disney Vacation Planning DVD just because? I watched the DVD today and just got excited to see our world. It makes me want to just jump into my car and drive up to Orlando. Does Disney know how to inspire you or what?
Searching for G.I. Joes has been something I've been doing since the early 80s. It was fairly easy to find every character you wanted all the way up until 2007-2008. The passed two or three series have had a few characters that the only way to get them is by online ordering or buying a case from the store. To create any real team, army, collection, whatever you want to call it you need these hard to find characters. So the search is on continuing from store to store (no ebay) to find Battle Armor Cobra Commander, Lt. Torpedo, the Battle Android Troopers, Snow Serpents, and the Iron Grenadiers.
