A113 is found through out many animated shows and movies. But what does it mean? A1-13 is actually a reference to a classroom at California Institute of Arts. Graduates pay tribute to their alma mater by inserting 'A113' into their work wherever they can. It's a way of honoring their school and teachers. For example: Can't think of a name for a fictional product? Need a license plate number? Insert A113. Check out some of the examples of A113 license plates below. Keep your eye out for the plate while watching animated film and shows. This trend is started to pop up in films too. You'll never know where it might popup next.

Imagine your favorite movie cars as Pixar characters! Well the guys over at Next Movie commissioned Old Red Jalopy (a poster designer) to anthropomorphically redesign seven famous movie cars as Cars 2 characters! Seven famous movie cars were Pixarized (is that even a word?). Not sure. But I agree with NextMovie.com, I too smell a concept for some interesting sequel material! Listen up Pixar and Cars fans!
All of the cars feature eyes on their windshields just like the regular Pixar Cars characters. Each of them have a unique smile and facial expression. I like how the artist took the time to make each car special. I can start to see voices and personalities forming in my head for some of the cars. However the pieces that really caught my eye were the Delorean Time Machine, The Batmobile, and Ecto 1! Check them out over at NextMovie.com! Hopefully Old Red Jalopy will have these posted on their site for public consumption too! See ya next time.
