Two More Autopia Pix, December 1998

I'm down to the last few photos from this bunch of Autopia pix, circa 1998. 

Once again, I am impressed with the beauty of the landscaping in this image. The little girl in pink is experiencing her first drive through the country. Every 20th car got to hit an animatronic skunk, which always evoked much laughter. 

And here's an almost-identical picture, only the car has changed to a tomato red (or is it orange?).

It is quite something how both images captured each vehicle in virtually the exact same spot.
Happy Motoring-!

Thanks, Major.

It's the car of a different color!

Ho ho ho
Ha ha ha
That's how we laugh the day away
In the merry old Autopia.

Nanook, I know, it was just chance, but still pretty amazing.

K. Martinez - Well bust my buttons!

That little girl will remember when her dad let her “drive” on the Autopia. What a nice dad!

I miss this model of Autopia car as well as the track layout! I don't care for the late 1990's remodel, but I still hope the recent rumor about the Autopia being taken out altogether and replaced with a Star Wars ride isn't true.
