Surprised no one mentioned this one. Fillmore's license plate is 51237, which is (in US format) May 12, 1937 - George Carlin's DOB...

Not a Pixar reference, but I did notice in the Big Bentley scene in London that Holley yelled "reverse the polarity!" Which is a reference to Doctor Who, a huge show over in the UK. I'm a big fan so I was very excited by that one XD
Great. Now I have guilt!

One neat this about this movie is the overflow of Easter Eggs. I have to keep a closer eye open on my second viewing. I'm extremely curious as to the Brave reference.

Wait, what? Was Mater's birthday mentioned in a movie guide or something? I don't recall it in the film. O_O

I looked up some of the easter eggs and noticed there was a State Farm reference. Its
Spoiler: show
when Finn and Holley tell Mater he's a secret agent. Mater thinks they mean an insurance agent and Mater says "Like a good neighbor, Matter is there!"
I found it up on Pixar wikia.

Mater's birthday is shown in the film.
Spoiler: show
during the end credits, his passport scrolls by
.

I have a fairly extensive list (so far) at http://www.stitchkingdom.com/disney-car ... ggs-16708/ - more than that's shared here.

I did leave off Filmore's license plate because that was from the first film, no? But as a suitable replacement, I added what Finn's license plate means, although it wasn't really a secret to begin with

I saw some commenters on TPT discussing the possible Brave reference:

So I looked up the movie (sorry :P) and took a screencap (spoilers):

It's hard to tell from this picture, but it seems like the most likely location for it.

Wow no-one said this yet, but at the very end, where Finn tells Mater that if he needs anything, to tell him, to which Mater replies "No...Well, there is one thing..." is a direct copy of the scene at the end of the first movie, when Tex is talking to Lightning.(I put that in spoilers too, since it is a direct copy, for sure)

Oh yes! I realized that in theatres, and I thought it was a perfect way to end the movie.

I just remembered another one. Everyone knows Crabby right? The boat Finn is on in the beginning? Well, I'm positive that its a reference to the Northwestern from Deadliest catch. Here take a look:
Crabby
Northwestern
PS. I think I also read that Crabby was voiced by the captain of the Northwestern so...

I read an article on /film that got taken down for some reason, but it confirmed that Brave easter egg, and also said that:
The PP truck appears on the Mel Dorado show before Axelrod comes on, and that John Lasseter also voices the "fuzzy dice!" car in the casino.

Pixar said that there is always a reference to future film(s) in their current films, so that is probably quite possible that there is a Brave reference.

The only one I saw as "Lassetyre". But I did spot the Pizza Planet truck and two others I can't quite remember, so I am looking forward to adding those to the in jokes list.
