Friday Video: Pixar's Tokyo Mater

If you thought the one thing missing from Pixar’s Cars was some JDM flava, then this is the video for you. In this animated short Mater and Lightning McQueen hit the mean streets of Tokyo for some street racing action with a plot following the tails of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift as closely as the best tandem drifters. There isn’t much of a nostalgic car presence unless you count the fender mirrors on the big sedan that is some kind of Century/Cedric mashup but it’s still entertaining. Enjoy, you import punks!

    Personally I thought the black sedan was looking more like a Crown S120 or S130.
    Bad guy really looks like a Silvia S15. ;)

    Nice to see they included the kei cars, too. The fender mirrored car looks like a Gloria. The villain kinda looks like a Lotus Exige.

    lol, that was great.

    The ninjas should have been like 4 wheel steer Preludes or something, haha.

    Bob: that would have been brilliant!

  6. That was fun. It would be cool if he had a short of “Kill Bill” thing where he went to train with a “Drift Master” C10 Skyline or something
