TOMORROWLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!

A movie that’s PG and one of the better live action PG movies that I’ve seen, and the amount of live action PG movies I’ve seen in the past 5 years is like none!!!  Probably not true, but if you like the idea of the future, in Walt Disney’s eyes, but with like the techmology of the actual future, and not the one Walt dreamed of in the 60s, but sorta like the one Walt dreamt up in the 60s, then you’ll probably like this movie, even though they could have spent more time in Tomorrowland, instead of in Todayland, but these complaints are from Yesterdayland

Visitors to the 1939 New York World’s Fair Highways and Horizons exhibit by General Motors were dazzled by the display of a one-of-a-kind 1939 Pontiac Deluxe Six Plexiglas® car.  This specially fabricated see through vehicle was constructed of acrylic plastic (quite an advancement at the time) which made visible the many parts that created the Deluxe Six.  All screws and fasteners were chrome-plated for dramatic effect.  The ‘Ghost Car’ also appeared at the 1940 New York World’s Fair and proudly showcased its newly redesigned front end and grill.  A second 1940 ‘Ghost Car’ was built for the 1940 Golden Gate Exposition on Treasure Island, near San Francisco
