Over the weekend, countless fans descended upon Anaheim, California to attend D23 Expo, an annual event for the “ultimate Disney fan.”
This popular convention features three days of panels filled with exclusive content and celebrity sightings, and of course, awesome displays and props showcases.
What caught my eye this year was a larger presence of movie cars, not just from the recently released film “Cars 3,” but from some of Disney’s other shows like “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

At first glance, this might look like Dominic Toretto’s 1969 Dodge Charger from the Fast and the Furious, but it’s actually the “Hell Charger,” a fiery extension of Robbie Reyes, AKA Ghost Rider (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.). Flaming burnouts are infinitely cooler in this devilish muscle car.
