At this year's Annual "Comedy and Cars" gala at the Petersen Automotive Museum, funnyman and car nut Adam Corolla will be honored, as well as Disney/Pixar's John Lasseter. They'll be named the 2012 Automotive Enthusiast of the Year, and 2012 Automotive Visionary of the Year, respectively.

According to museum chairman Steve Young, "We felt it was time to recognize those who have used to gift of humor to promote the enjoyment of the automobile as a creative outlet." Young would be referring to Corolla's "CarCast" a weekly automotive podcast, and the "Adam Corolla Podcast" which, at over 5 million downloads a month, is the Guinness Book of World Records' "Most Downloaded Podcast."

John Lasseter, meanwhile, oversees the creative aspect of all Disney and Pixar films. The two-time Oscar-winner made his debut with Toy Story in 1995 and is being recognized by the Petersen Museum for his work directing Cars and Cars 2. Lasseter has a cameo appearance in Cars 2 as "John Lassetire," the crew chief for Jeff Gordon's "Jeff Gorvette" character. In a comment released by the Petersen Museum, Lasseter says, "The Petersen Museum has the same passion for cars that we at Pixar have for animation...we are kindred spirits, and I'm honored both as a filmmaker and lifelong car lover to receive this award."

Both men will be honored a the Museum's annual "Comedy and Cars Gala" on Thursday, October 4, 2012.
