Cars’ Doc Hudson Spotted in Cleveland, Tennessee
Sometimes, pit stops on road trips are planned. Other times, something amazing is spotted, and a U-turn is necessary. The latter was the case when we spotted the famous Doc Hudson in the parking lot of a preschool in Cleveland, Tennessee.
Seeing an antique car is always fun, but to see Doc Hudson, the “Fabulous Hudson Hornet” from Disney/Pixar’s film Cars was a real surprise.
Although the car is chained to the parking lot and has four flat tires, it’s still an amazing resemblance. We love the addition of the “DOC” plate on the front just in case you didn’t recognize that shape and those big blue eyes!
Cars is special to us because we have a love of Route 66. It tells the story of how many small towns on Route 66 were bypassed and wereultimately forgotten. Radiator Springs was able to become popular again with the help of Lightning McQueen, but the story is true for towns on the real Route 66 today. If you love travel, especially road trips, we highly recommend this movie.
We’re huge Disney fans, and we’ve come across a few real-life Disney destinations during our travels. We visited the home of Lilo and Stitch in Hawaii and found the UP house in Seattle. So, of course, we had to stop and take pictures with ol’ Doc Hudson too.

Cleveland, Tennessee was our destination to view the 2017 total solar eclipse, but if you’re in the area, you can find Doc Hudson in the parking lot of Westside Christian Academy at 2850 Westside Drive Northwest, Cleveland, Tennessee. He’s even visible on Google maps! I bet the kids at the preschool love him!
Are you a Disney/Pixar fan? Did you enjoy the movie Cars? Have you seen any other Disney characters or locations in real life? Have you ever seen something on the roadside you just had to stop for? We’d love to know your thoughts, so leave a comment below!
