Hidden Mickey Monday ºoº - Custom Painted Hidden Mickey Car Hoods

With features like Flo's V-8 Cafe and the Cadillac Range, Cars Land gets the motor running for Disney loving gear-heads. Automotive enthusiasts visiting Disney Caifornia Adventure Park can spend hours shifting through the car-inspired details scattered throughout Radiator Springs.

While most cars are judged by everything under the hood, the custom painted hoods in Cars Land are unique headturners. More than a dozen custom bonnets were created by famed auto designer & customizer Chip Foose, host of televsion's Overhaulin' and owner of Foose Designs in Huntington Beach, California. A vital Imagineering consultant in creating Cars Land, Foose had originally helped Pixar Studios by styling Ramone's authentic lowrider look in 2006's Cars.

Each of Foose's classic car hoods features a unique paint scheme and a Classsic Mickey hidden somewhere within its design. Seven of the custom creations have been displayed in Ramone's House of Body Art Gift Shop, six in the storefront windows and one behind the register counter.

At least five more of the Disney-inpsired Foose designs appear inside the Radiator Springs Racers attraction. After meeting Sally & Lightning McQueen, racers heading into Ramone's shop for a quick paint job, pass several ornate hoods and their Hidden Mickeys.
