Thanks to John Smatlak of the Orange Empire Railway Museum we have the best pics I've seen of the scale replica P.E. "Hollywood" cars now running at Disney's California Adventure amusement park, adjacent to the Tragic Kingdom at Anaheim.
The background is a matte painting of the type often used in movie production.
Compare with the earlier paint scheme shown in above posts. The cars run on batteries, with the inert overhead there for a more authentic look.

Saw these a few months ago. It's kind of strange how they run them. They do run passengers, but some of the time they run them with "news boy" characters (and Mickey Mouse). They're "singing" (more like lip-syncing) "California Here We Come" while the car moves, and come out of the car with the car as a background for a song and dance number.
