    Our car was painted for John Lasseter to look like Francis from the movie "A Bug's Life". It was driven by Lasseter to the Hollywood premiere. Later Francis was auctioned at a charity auction to another Disney executive and then to another auction for yet another children's charity and bought by the first Iowa owner.

    Francis has animation art from the movie on the headliner, and signatures from Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Julia Louis- Dreyfus, Phyllis Dillar, and other talent from the movie.

    Francis has a facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pixarcar

    I'm interested in finding a total value for both the car as a restored VW and as a Disneyana collectible.

    Thanks! (there needs to be a few more catagories to fit this in)
