A little bit of Disney, found in the heart of Texas

Out roadtrip switches typically aren't a big deal. Pull off the highway. Switch seats. Drive back onto the road. But this time, we had a problem.
"Are you kidding me?" I yelled, in frustration. Laurie had selected an exit with no return to the highway. We'd have to drive down a local road until we could find a way back to I-40.
So we headed down the road for a mile or so, until we saw an intersection up ahead. A sign pointed us back toward the highway. Soon, we'd be back on our way. But what is this?
"Take a picture," I yelled, again.
Here's what I was looking at, across the street at that intersection in the middle of nowhere Texas, off I-40, where Route 66 once ran.
Yep, my wife, strong with the Disney Force, just dumb-lucked us to the site of the visual inspiration for Ramone's House of Body Art in Disney California Adventure's Cars Land, back home in Southern California.

I know where some Imagineers have been!
