Selecting who I wanted to feature as my very first guest on The Route 66 Podcast was really very simple. He’s the biggest advocate of Route 66, with the release of his 1990 book simply titled, Route 66: The Mother Road.
When the creators of Toy Story wanted to create a movie about Route 66, they called upon Michael Wallis. In this very special episode of The Route 66 Podcast, Michael talks about taking the creative team from Pixar on a Route 66 road trip. He talks about all the characters that they met on Route 66 and how they eventually morphed into the cast of Cars. In fact, Michael even became the voice of Sheriff in the CARS film.
