Revving Up the Streets: Lightning McQueen Saga

Transforming a Dodge Avenger into Lightning McQueen: A Beloved Tribute

Lightning McQueen, the iconic red racing car, burst onto the big screen in Disney-Pixar’s “Cars” in 2006. Since then, this animated character has become a beloved figure, captivating audiences of all ages.

So, picture this: I might be in my 40s, but my heart still races for Lightning McQueen and the whole “Cars” vibe. Back in 2018 on PEI, my sister got herself a flashy red 2013 Dodge Avenger. Lightbulb moment! I begged her to let me turn it into Lightning McQueen.

And guess what? It wasn’t just for my eyes—turns out, kids and adults all over dig the idea. Cruising down the streets became a spectacle; everyone wanted a pic!

From PEI to Ontario: The Journey and Farewell of My Lightning McQueen Car

Fast forward to 2019, I make the leap to Newfoundland, hunting for a new employer who’d hook me up with that sweet Permanent Residency deal. Lightning McQueen, of course, comes along for the ride.

In 2021, just when I was finally done on my Permanent Residency application, I decided to move again to Ontario but this time my trusty car hits a speed bump. Failed inspection and a $2500 repair bill? Ouch. I had to let go of my Lightning McQueen 1.0.

But you know what they say—when one Lightning McQueen door closes, a Mustang door swings open, I got myself a 2015 Ford Mustang. Lightning McQueen 2.0 was a go!

June 2022, I roll into a local shop, and after a bit of wizardry my new Lightning McQueen 2.0 is born.

Join the Adventure: ‘Lightning McQueen Ontario’ and the United Mustang Family

Now, I’m not one to keep things to myself. So, I kick off a social media page, “Lightning McQueen Ontario,” to spill all the beans about my adventures with this flashy four-wheeler.

Little did I know, it’d blow up! Mustang lovers unite, and I get invited to meetups and be part of this amazing family United Mustang of Ontario. That’s when the party starts.

I’m not here for business. It’s all about giving back to the community and spreading that Lightning McQueen love. Charities, fundraisers, personal shindigs any event that you think I will fit in.

I’m there, Lightning McQueen making everyone’s day a bit more animated, filled with fun and excitement.

Want to keep up with the Lightning McQueen saga? Got an event that needs a dash of McQueen magic? Hit me up on Facebook and Instagram at “Lightning McQueen Ontario.”

 Lightning McQueen Saga,

If I’m free, you bet I’ll be there, bringing the Disney magic to the streets. Lightning McQueen isn’t just a car; it’s a vibe, it’s an inspiration and I’m here to share it with all you.
