Hey, Do you remember the Pixar movie Cars? I bet you do. Would you like to see them make a sequel? I bet you would. Do you wish you could see the theatrical trailer right now? Wish granted. Hit the jump to see the new trailer, and watch for Cars 2 in theaters this summer!

Here's a question for the 2 million plus CarDomain memebers out there: can you pinpoint the car that started your automotive obsession? Can you break down years of Hot Wheels cars, car mags, and wall posters into one moment with one vehicle? I can... I trace back my obsession with cars to my my father's 1979 Camaro Rally Sport. I was 5 years old at the time, and it was 10. It already had the typical spidercracks in the bumper, and a broken console armrest, but it also had a V8 and T-tops for sunny-day driving. Being that we were stationed in Hawaii (due to my father's Naval career) those T-tops spent a lot of time in the trunk. The best was my father's justification of the car to my mom: "He's 5, he's the only one small enough to fit in the backseat!" This photo was sent to me yesterday by my father and that was the first time I've seen this car since I was about 8, and it brings back some powerful memories. So tell me, what was your car that started it for you?

Growing up in the 90's, I had little to no interest in new cars. They weren't terriblly exciting at the time, save for a few good old standbys: Corvette, Viper, Camaro ect. Nowadays, by contrast, its hard for me to keep from drooling every time I read about the latest, nastiest, fastest model a car company is producing right now: CTS-V, 5.0 Mustang, Camaro, hell, even the new SHO Taurus! But the newest generation of potential car buyers doesn't necessarily feel that way, and it's getting automakers nervous. Does it seem to you that the coming-of-age generation known as Gen Y is far less interested in cars than any of their predecessors? I can think of examples even in my own family of people not getting their license until their 20s. I found an article on MSN that discusses the implications of this issue--the views represented might seem pretty far-fetched from the point of view of any lifelong gearhead, but it's food for thought nonetheless.
