Out of all of the items in his collection, John Lasseter and Albert Hinkey are two of Jorge Arias’ favourite pieces
Jorge Arias from Mexico has become the world’s largest collector of Disney’s ‘Cars’ memorabilia. His love affair with Disney cars started in 2006 when the eponymous film, produced by Pixar Animation Studios, was released. The computer-animated sports comedy film features talking cars. Awestruck by the film, Arias decided to collect memorabilia related to the talking motors.
With a total of 1,200 items, he now has the record for the largest collection of Cars memorabilia. His collecting journey began when his daughter asked him to buy McQueen, Sally, Mater, and Chick Hicks from the first Cars movie to play with her neighbour.
Now, 15 years later, his collection only continues to grow as he is “continuously looking for new items to add to it”.
He keeps his collection on glass shelves and in cases, which helps to keep them intact and in perfect condition. According to the site, he keeps a record of each item in his collection as each car is strategically placed and numbered inside the display cases.
Out of all of the items in his collection, John Lasseter and Albert Hinkey are two of his favourite pieces. He has many visitors including children who visit him to see his “impressive collection”.
