Like many other Tomorrowland attractions, I never seem to grow weary when it comes to looking at pictures of the Autopia. Maybe it is due, in part, to my love of cool cars!
The "Mark VII" vehicles debuted in 1967, and they are the model that I remember from my childhood. In fact they continued to be used until 1999, when the ride closed temporarily for a complete redo and the addition of new cars. 32 years is a pretty good run! Here's a mom and daughter in a sporty red number. Presumably mom is driving because the kid is too small to reach the gas pedal (and pushing down on that gas pedal takes some real oomph)!
I can almost hear the familiar purr of dozens of cars putt-putting along the freeway of Tomorrow!
