Cinematic Road Trips

Little Miss Sunshine & The Bright Yellow Volkswagen Microbus

vw-van-in-little-miss-sunshine

Much like the Hoover family, the yellow 1978 VW T2 Microbus featured in the movie, Little Miss Sunshine has a one way ticket into mayhem. Equal parts star and car, the eccentric yellow Volkswagen bus has a sticky clutch, a stuck horn and predictably breaks down in the worst possible places.

The movie’s producers used five Microbuses to get the shots necessary to create a very real experience. The clips made of the cast driving down the road were actually filmed in motion, capturing a good essence of a genuine road trip. Also captured is the not so smooth ride, and the quirky mechanics of the bus itself.

Actors: Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Greg Kinnear, Abigail Breslin, Paul Dano
