Out and About: Cars Masters Weekend 2014 at Downtown Disney

Cars Masters Weekend 2014

It was about noon on Saturday, June 14, when we started wandering around Downtown Disney’s West Side to check out this year’s Cars Masters Weekend, and for classic car fans like ourselves, it was a great day.

We started over by the theaters, because we had just seen a morning movie, and right outside the theater exit was the Griswold family truckster (from the National Lampoon’s Vacation movie). It was pretty authentic, right down to the dog leash and collar hanging off the back bumper.
