They're Not Junk, They're Curios

As told in "Time Travel Mater," and in the new Radiator Springs Museum inside Blue Sky Cellar, Radiator Springs Curios was Stanley's gift to his wife, Lizzie--a permanent place for her to sell her souvenirs and knick knacks to travelers and guests.  Through the up and down history of the town, it has persevered, presenting its random wares to all who take interest.

At Disney California Adventure's Cars Land, the Curios is a fitting souvenir shop, complete with toys and collectibles for guests to enjoy.  It is decorated with genuine artifacts found all over Route 66, including a variety of signs, and recreates the gritty charm that can be found in road stops all over the "Mother Road."  It may not look sleek and cool like some of its neighbors, but Radiator Springs Curios has character.  It's a tribute to a bygone era, and a memento in and of itself!
