This is a list of characters from the Pixar franchise Cars, as well as the Disney franchise Planes, which is set in the same fictional universe:

Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski proclaimed

Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski proclaimed April 21, 2006, Friday Mack Trucks-Disney/Pixar "Cars" Day[3] in Mack's honor during the 41-city "CARS Road Trip '06" promotional tour.[4]

Mack is seen in the short Mater and the Ghostlight after Lightning established his hea

Mack is seen in the short Mater and the Ghostlight after Lightning established his headquarters on US Route 66. In Cars 2 he appears in a pair of brief cameo appearances at the start and end, where his two lines are "Oh, his best friend greetings. They get longer every year," and "Oh, those two are perfect for each other.". He appears in Cars 3 with a much larger role compared to Cars 2. He is still working as McQueen's transport. 4 months after McQueen's accident, he is in Radiator Springs and takes McQueen, Luigi, and Guido to the Rust-eze training center. Later, he takes McQueen, Cruz, Luigi, and Guido to the Thunder Hollow demolition derby circuit and after arriving, he comes up with the idea to disguise McQueen. On their way back, he is forced to pull over when Cruz opens his hauler and decides to part ways. He accompanies McQueen to pick Cruz up again and they head to Thomasville, and then to the Florida 500.

In a deleted scene, before McQueen heads to the tiebreaker race in California, Mack heads to a truck stop, after his grill is covered by a moth blizzard, to be washed. A still impatient McQueen comes outside the trailer to chase after Mack, and that is how he was lost. In another deleted scene, albeit a dream sequence where McQueen is in radiator springs, his V8 Alcohol motor is inside a steamroller, and Mater borrows his body; Mack makes a mistake, thinking Mater is McQueen, and takes him to the race.

Lightning McQueen's pit crew are generic forklifts who only appear at the start of the film, never to be acknowledged again. They quit after McQueen said that he is a one-man show. One of them, presumably the acting crew chief is voiced by Mike Nelson. After the official crew chief had decided to quit, he is referred to by McQueen as "Chuck", and retorts angrily afterwards, "And my name is not Chuck!". In the credits, he is referred to as "Not Chuck". They appear in the film (only to leave almost immediately) to show McQueen's selfishness and inability to work with others. McQueen had a crew chief before the film, but was not seen in the film, because McQueen fired him (believing he was a one-man show, which later came back to haunt him for his return). The chief was mentioned several times at the Dinoco 400 race. The crew is later replaced by McQueen's friends from Radiator Springs and Mack for the big race. In Cars 2, McQueen has apparently hired a new pit crew as he mentions having given them all a vacation when asked to attend the World Grand Prix, but his friends from Radiator Springs again offer to become his crew for a race and he accepts. Not Chuck returns in Cars: Race-O-Rama as a playable character in the Guido Kart races (a Cars version of Mario Kart). He still has his Rust-eze paint job from the film despite quitting on Lightning's team for four years. He may have had a change of heart and rejoined his team after McQueen's good sportsmanship.

Harv

Harv is Lightning McQueen's agent. Never seen on-screen, McQueen speaks to Harv via his speaker phone when McQueen and Mack are en route to the tiebreaker race and again when Mack is in Radiator Springs to pick up McQueen. Consequently, very little is known of Harv's character except that he threatened to fire Mack if he doesn't get McQueen into his trailer.

Harv is voiced by Jeremy Piven in the U.S. version and The Grand Tour presenter Jeremy Clarkson in the UK version. He is

Harv is voiced by Jeremy Piven in the U.S. version and The Grand Tour presenter Jeremy Clarkson in the UK version. He is also based on the character Ari Gold from the HBO series Entourage. Although he is not seen in the actual film, Jeremy Clarkson believes that he is a 1979 Ford Granada Ghia, while in the American version, he is thought to be a 1996 Oldsmobile.

The Rust-eze Brothers, Rusty and Dusty, are the spokescars and owners of Rust-eze, the team that sponsors Lightning and that gave him his "big break", but they are somewhat awkward. Rusty is a 1963 Dodge Dart and Dusty, a 1967 Dodge A100.[5] Rusty and Dusty are voiced by real-life brothers Tom and Ray Magliozzi (respectively) of National Public Radio's Car Talk, using that program's closing line "...and don't drive like my brother!". Rusty bears an intentional resemblance to Tom Magliozzi's infamous green 1963 Dart, named "The Dartre".[6]

They appear three times in the first film, at the beginning with McQueen looking forward to leaving them, in the middle very briefly being interviewed and at the end after the tiebreaker race when McQueen realises he is happy with them. In a deleted scene on the DVD, much of their dialogue (heard at the sponsors' tent in the final script) was originally par

They appear three times in the first film, at the beginning with McQueen looking forward to leaving them, in the middle very briefly being interviewed and at the end after the tiebreaker race when McQueen realises he is happy with them. In a deleted scene on the DVD, much of their dialogue (heard at the sponsors' tent in the final script) was originally part of a brief stop at the Top Down Truck Stop. On the die-cast cars, Rusty's license plate states "Rust" and Dusty's sports "Eze". Their license plates are from "R Fair City", a term the Car Talk brothers use to describe their home town of Cambridge, Massachusetts. They appear four times in the third film, when they talked with McQueen about his winnings, McQueen was going to see Cal Weathers, when the Radiator Springs gang members and McQueen were talking on the phone and at the Rust-eze racing center to hand the sponsor over to Sterling.

Following Tom's death in 2014, unused archive recordings from the first film were used to provide Rusty's speaking parts in Cars 3.

The Doc Hudson Racing Academy Students (voiced by Chris Edgerley And Joe Smith) are a group of four young race cars who were taught to race from Doc Hudson and Lightning McQueen in Cars: Race-O-Rama. They are all modeled as the same model, but with different modifications and blue, white, grey and black paint jobs: Student 1 has one stripe going down the center and a small spoiler, Student 2 has three stripes on each side, one white, one gray and one black, and a big black spoiler, Student 3 has white on the top and bottom and Student 4 has a decal on each side which resemble scratches. They usually race in the Race-O-Rama alongside Lightning McQueen, learning different techniques and movements for racing while Doc Hudson communicates them as crew chief. After Doc's passing, Lightning McQueen now teaches this group of students with Cruz Ramirez and Smokey helping him out. All four students are playable in Cars: Race-O-Rama. Doc Student 4 does not appear in any of the races in the game. Since he is not playable on the PlayStation 2 version, he does not appear at all.

Sterling

Sterling is a billionaire and the new owner of the Rust-eze Racing Center.

Sterling is a billionaire and the new owner of the Rust-eze Racing Center. He reveals himself to be a fan of Lightning McQueen. He assigns Cruz Ramirez to train McQueen and prepare him for the Florida 500. After watching McQueen's poor performance on the simulator, Sterling attempted to convince McQueen to retire and become a racing brand. McQueen convinces him to give him a chance at winning the Florida 500, then McQueen could decide when to stop racing. Sterling reluctantly agrees.

At the Florida 500, Sterling reveals himself as greedy and self-centered when he cruelly ordered Cruz to leave and resume her job as a trainer. Against Sterling's will, McQueen puts Cruz in the race. After Cruz wins, Sterling asks her to race for him, but she refuses and quits. Tex Dinoco, owner of Dinoco, purc

At the Florida 500, Sterling reveals himself as greedy and self-centered when he cruelly ordered Cruz to leave and resume her job as a trainer. Against Sterling's will, McQueen puts Cruz in the race. After Cruz wins, Sterling asks her to race for him, but she refuses and quits. Tex Dinoco, owner of Dinoco, purchases Rust-eze from him, allowing Cruz to race and McQueen to train her.

He is voiced by Nathan Fillion.[7]

A personal voice command assistant to Cruz Ramirez that is able to track McQueen's speed through his electronic suit. Played by British Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton.[8]

Cruz Ramirez<

Cruz Ramirez, a Hispanic female, is Lightning McQueen's trainer and technician at the Rust-eze Racing Center. She is known for training some of the best newer elite rookies through her unconventional training methods. She is assigned to train McQueen for the Florida 500. She attempts to train McQueen at Fireball Beach, but McQueen ends up teaching her how to race on sand. After surviving a Demolition Derby, which Cruz wins, McQueen lashes out on her for wasting his time and humiliating him on TV. Then, Cruz reveals that she always wanted to be a racer, but never found the confidence to do so.

Cruz and McQueen reconcile and head to Thomasville where they meet the former crew chief of Doc Hudson, Smokey. Smokey trains McQueen and inspires Cruz as well. At the Florida 500, Cruz is sent back to the Racing Center. McQueen exits the race to allow Cruz to race. Using what she's learned on the road, Cruz catches up to

Cruz and McQueen reconcile and head to Thomasville where they meet the former crew chief of Doc Hudson, Smokey. Smokey trains McQueen and inspires Cruz as well. At the Florida 500, Cruz is sent back to the Racing Center. McQueen exits the race to allow Cruz to race. Using what she's learned on the road, Cruz catches up to Jackson Storm, who tries to overtake her. However, Cruz flips over him and lands in first place. She begins to race for the Dinoco team, sporting Doc's former #51, with McQueen as her mentor. In the post-credits, Cruz has won the Piston Cup with Lightning by her side.

Cruz is voiced by Cristela Alonzo.[9] She returned in Cars 3: Driven to Win as one of the main characters and a starting playable character along with Lightning McQueen, Mater, Sally, Ramone and Guido.

The Rust-eze Racing Center Trainees are a group of Next-Gen Piston Cup racers mostly painted chrome grey and have different colored spoilers, bumpers, Lightyear racing tires, and sideskirts. Each trainee is identified with a Rust-eze Racing Center logo on their sides as well as a trainee number on their sides and back. There are currently at least 12 trainees at the Rust-eze Racing Center who perform a wide variety of exercises, get tested for performance, and even race on the simulator to hopefully become Piston Cup Series racers for the Rust-eze Racing team if Lightning McQueen announces his retirement. They're named as follows:

  • Aiden is a grey and orange Next-Gen SA-2 Race Car with 003 as his trainee number. He was seen a couple of times in Cars 3 on the treadmill and when he saw Lightning McQueen hanging face-down, with a drip pan underneath him, as part of Cruz's training methods, Aiden drives past him and makes a rude remark. His voice actor is currently unknown.
  • Kurt is

    Strip Weathers, better known as The King, is a "Dinoco-blue" veteran racecar and racing legend voiced by NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Petty. Weathers is an anthropomorphic version of Petty's aerodynamic 1970 Plymouth Superbird, sporting same shade of blue and Petty's racecar number, 43.[10] He is one of the racecars in the 2006 Piston Cup three-way tie, along with Chick Hicks and Lightning McQueen. His sponsor (Dinoco), like Petty's (STP), is a well-known oil company.

    He is Dinoco's "Golden Boy", having won seven Piston Cups[11] (the same number of NASCAR Cup Series championships Petty himself won in his career) and is hoping for his eighth in the tiebreaker race before entering retirement. He tells McQueen to remember the importance of his team, but the rookie does not pay any attention, being more preoccupied with the thought of taking over the Dinoco sponsorship after Weathers' retirement.

    On the final lap of the tie-breaker race, Hicks rams into Weathers, sending him into a dangerous rollover. When McQueen sees this, he realizes that Weathers' career might end the way Doc Hudson's did. After stopping short of the finish line, allowing Hicks to win, McQueen pushes Weathers across the finish line to let him finish his last race before his retirement, much to the audience's delight. Weathers is last seen visiting the racing museum in Radiator Springs with his wife and another Piston Cup racer, "Junior", stating that Hudson was his inspiration (In NASCAR, "The King" #43 is the second of four generations of racers; his father Lee Petty won his first Cup in 1954, one year after the multiple Fabulous Hudson Hornet victories).

    He returns in Cars 3 as the crew chief of his nephew and new Dinoco racer Cal Weathers with Richard Petty reprising his role as the voice of The King. He is only shown in the first race of the film, where he tells Cal nice comeback after he gets his tires for a pit stop, and when he and his nephew pass the sponsorship to Cruz Ramirez after she wins the Florida 500. His only line in the film is "Nice comeback, Cal". (In real-life, Petty's nephew Trent Owens, son of his wife Lynda's brother Randy, is a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series crew chief.)

    In the Danish edition of the movie, the King is voiced by nine-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen. In the Finnish edition of the movie, The King is voiced by Finnish two-time Formula One World Champion Mika Häkkinen. In the German edition, he is voiced by Austrian three-time Formula One World Champion Niki Lauda.

    Strip Weathers also appears in the film's video game as an unlockable character in the Arcade. He is mentioned by Darrell Cartrip in the game's Story Mode before the first Piston Cup race at the Palm Mile Speedway.

    He also appears in Disney Infinity.

When McQueen sees this, he realizes that Weathers' career might end the way Doc Hudson's did.

    Strip Weathers also appears in the film's video game as an unlockable character in the Arcade. He is mentioned by Darrell Cartrip in the game's Story Mode before the first Piston Cup race at the Palm Mile Speedway.

    He also appears in Disney Infinity.

    Lynda Weathers, also known as "Mrs. The King", (voiced by Richard Petty's wife Lynda Petty) is similar in design to a 1974 Chrysler Town & Country (1941–1988) station wagon that brought the Petty family to "The King"'s races during the 1970s. Like Tex, Lynda follows each race from a Dinoco VIP booth, rooting for her husband. Throughout the film, she is constantly shown supporting her husband and she worries deeply when he is flipped by Chick Hicks. After the race, while Chick Hicks is booed for wrecking her husband and winning the Piston Cup, she kisses Lightning on the cheek and tells him thanks for helping her husband finish his final race.

    During the ending credits of Cars, Mrs. The King can be seen at the Doc Hudson Museum with her husband and Mater as a tour guide throughout the museum. She asks to see and meet Doc Hudson, but Mater is unsure of his whereabouts at the present time – but assumes he is out racing, most likely with McQueen (which turns out

She asks to see and meet Doc Hudson, but Mater is unsure of his whereabouts at the present time – but assumes he is out racing, most likely with McQueen (which turns out to be true).

    Cal is a new Dinoco racer. Took over as Dinoco racer after his uncle Strip Weathers retired and became his crew chief. Cal Weathers is numbered 42, and is a blue Capital Motors Mark II Piston Cup Stock Car with blue rims. He often races with Lightning McQueen and Bobby Swift and constantly pull pranks with each other after a race. Unlike his uncle, he seemed to be one of the weak Dinoco racers and never won any Piston Cups (according to Tex as a joke when he talks to Cruz Ramirez on joining Dinoco which in reality, he won two Piston Cups in the past), though he does win some races as shown when he beats McQueen in a close finish at Rocker Arms Speedway. He later retires when new next gen racers including Jackson Storm take over the sport. He is voiced by real-life driver Kyle Petty who is Richard Petty's son.

    Tex Dinoco

    Tex Dinoco, voiced by Humpy Wheeler of Charlotte Motor Speedway, is the billionaire owner of Dinoco.[12] Packaged as "Tex Dinoco with bullhorns" as a diecast car, he is simply called "Tex" in the film's credits. He speaks with a Carolina accent and resembles a 1975 Cadillac Coupe de Ville[13] at The Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo. He is the King's manager and sponsor. Unlike Lightning's agent (Harv, who doesn't watch the race), Tex is an avid race fan who would never miss a race. As a supportive and long-time friend of both Lynda and "The King", he has been a loyal fan of "The King" for many years and boasts that The King "has made Dinoco proud".

    After Chick Hicks wins by employing a PIT maneuver to sabotage The King in the final lap of the tiebreaker, sending King into a dangerous rollover crash, Tex (angered by Hicks' unsportsmanlike driving) offers the lucrative sponsorship to Lightning with the explanation that "there's a whole lot more to racing than just winning" this is an echo of a line that McQueen used at the end of the race shown at the start of the film but with an entirely different meaning. However, McQueen turns down the offer, opting to stay with Rust-Eze. But Tex does tell McQueen, "If there's ever anything he can do for him, just let him know."

    He returns for Cars 3 as the sponsor for Cal Weathers. After Cal retired, Tex sought to have newcomer Cruz Ramirez to race for him after watching her performance in the Florida 500. He also purchases Rust-eze from Sterling and allows Lightning McQueen to sport a new paint job (it looks just like Doc's old paint job).

    The Dinoco Transport Helicopter is based on a Bell 430. Without a speaking part, he has no voice actor and is not named in the closing credits. His name is Rotor Turbosky (in apparent reference to helicopter maker Sikorsky) in the die-cast Cars toy collection. He is seen on top of the Dinoco tent during the races. Mater gets a ride over Radiator Springs at the end of the film, a favor which Lightning had promised Mater earlier when dreaming of the big trophy and the big sponsor (Dinoco) with the fancy helicopter.

    HTB team

    Chick Hick

    Chick Hicks (voiced by Michael Keaton in Cars, Bob Peterson in Cars 3) serves as Lightning McQueen's primary rival in the first film.

    He is a green 1979 Shyster Cremlin, "a generic Pixar design, 'a stock 1980s American car'" according to Pixar publicity coordinator Amanda Sorena,[14] and strongly resembles a GM G-body with features from both the Chevrolet Monte Carlo and the Buick Grand National. As the real-life General Motors wanted nothing to do with the character by rejecting an initial Pixar proposal to cast a Chevrolet stock car as the movie's villain, Chick is effectively an orphan.[14] He has spent his entire career trailing Strip "The King" Weathers, and is bitter about this fact. One of his most notable quotes in the movie is “Kachicka” which he uses as his version of Lightning McQueen's quote “Kachow”. His racing sponsor is Hostile Takeover Bank, or HTB.

    His pit crew generally mock Guido as compared to them he is very small, however they are surprised when Guido shows off hi

    He is a green 1979 Shyster Cremlin, "a generic Pixar design, 'a stock 1980s American car'" according to Pixar publicity coordinator Amanda Sorena,[14] and strongly resembles a GM G-body with features from both the Chevrolet Monte Carlo and the Buick Grand National. As the real-life General Motors wanted nothing to do with the character by rejecting an initial Pixar proposal to cast a Chevrolet stock car as the movie's villain, Chick is effectively an orphan.[14] He has spent his entire career trailing Strip "The King" Weathers, and is bitter about this fact. One of his most notable quotes in the movie is “Kachicka” which he uses as his version of Lightning McQueen's quote “Kachow”. His racing sponsor is Hostile Takeover Bank, or HTB.

    His pit crew generally mock Guido as compared to them he is very small, however they are surprised when Guido shows off his extremely quick tire changing capabilities. Hicks' racing number is 86, a reference to 1986, the year Pixar Animation Studios was founded; 86 itself is also a slang term for destroying or getting rid of something. Since 86 is twice the number 43 (King's number), it could also be an allusion to his entire career in relation to King.

    Hicks is extremely determined to win to the point that often he turns to unsportsmanlike conduct to do so. Hicks cheats his way through all of his races by ramming other cars or sideswiping them via the PIT maneuver in an attempt to cause racing incidents for his own benefit. He despises and mocks McQueen, adopting the nickname Thunder which McQueen previously used as a put-down (McQueen: "Because thunder always comes after 'lightning'"). Hicks is also equally antagonistic towards The King, having come 2nd or 3rd place to The King his entire career. While McQueen is presumed missing, Hicks tries to take away McQueen's fans and increase his fame.

    During the final lap of the tiebreaker race, Hicks (refusing to come in behind Strip Weathers again) PITs The King, sending him flying off the race track and into a rollover wreck on the in-field. He expects a huge ovation after McQueen deliberately gives up the Piston Cup in order to help Weathers, but nobody cheers Hicks on once he wins because they're fed up with his dirty tricks. Shortly afterwards, as Hicks gets on stage to claim his trophy and celebrate his victory, an angered crowd and media snub Hicks' victory by branding him a cheater. He is then pelted with discarded tires and booed off the stage with his trophy in humiliation. The immediate backlash is similar to backlash against Rusty Wallace after he spun out Darrell Waltrip in Turn 4 during Segment 3, Lap 9 of the Sprint All-Star Race V at Charlotte Motor Speedway, sending Waltrip spinning into the grass.

    In the film, a lucrative corporate sponsorship is at stake. Hicks and McQueen both share the dream of being the new face of Dinoco Oil, a firm long represented by retiring champion #43 "The King". They race on the assumption that winning the championship cup will land them the big sponsor, however, Dinoco owner Tex offers the sponsorship to McQueen, stating that there's more to racing than winning.

    He returns in Cars 3, being voiced by Bob Peterson since Keaton was unable to reprise the role due to schedule conflicts with Spider-Man: Homecoming in this film he now hosts his own talk show, Chick's Picks on Racing Sports Network and replaces his HTB sponsor stickers with the RSN ones after his company went bankrupt. He constantly boasts about his previous Piston Cup championship and cracks jokes at McQueen's expense as Jackson Storm takes over the sport. He also interviews him after he wins one of the races in Hartland Motor Speedway.

    Chick returns in the Cars video game, which is written by Pixar and considered a continuation to the story started in the movie. In the game, he is less rude than he was in the movie. He is first seen spying on Lightning's practice sessions with Doc Hudson. In Palm Mile Speedway, he ineffectively taunts Lightning before the first race of the season until Doc warns him off, then falls in with a gang of New York-based greaser cars in Carburetor County to challenge McQueen. Before the next Piston Cup race in Smasherville Stadium, the DRH gang jumps Mack on the interstate to steal McQueen's racing gear, but finger Chick as the one who hired them when caught by the Sheriff which he later confronted him there at the track with Chick refusing to believe.

    After Lightning won the race, Darrell Cartrip prepares to interview both Lightning and Chick only to see them during a heated argument. Darrell soon stopped this saying Lightning did won the race (with the tapes to prove it). Lightning McQueen soon challenged Chick Hicks to a three series Radiator Springs Grand Prix race in Radiator Springs, Tailfin Pass and Ornament Valley with the RSN filming the race before the last Piston Cup race in LA Speedway which he accepts before encouraging his fans on the TV camera to see him win the Piston Cup trophy for real this time, but only loses to McQueen afterwards.

    In the Cars Race-O-Rama video game, he seeks revenge by attempting to close down McQueen's racing academy to start his own in Radiator Springs, he also gets himself modified in the final Race-O-Rama race after seeing Lightning McQueen modified from Santa Carberera, Autopia, Motoropolis and later Radiator Springs. After his modification upgrade, he refers to himself as a high performance and custom racer whose gonna take McQueen down. Most of his Piston Cup sponsor stickers were removed and he gains a "Motor-Co" sticker for Chick's modifications and keeps his sponsor and his number 86 on his body.

    He also gains a black spoiler for downforce and his top part of his engine was exposed. Like his friends, Chick Hicks has a smokescreen unit equipped attempting to slow down McQueen but he gets defeated at the end, vowing for his revenge on McQueen. But his friends, Candice, Stinger and El Machismo turned against Chick and apologized to McQueen about their previous behavior which he accepted their apology and invited them to Lightning and Doc's Academy anytime who greatly accept. His catchphrase is "Ka-Chick-Ah!", a blatant rip-off of McQueen's catchphrase "KA-CHOW!".[clarification needed]

    Despite the fact he did not appear in Cars 2, he does show up in the film's video game as a downloadable character for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions. He also appears in Disney Infinity. He also appears in Cars 3: Driven to Win which he does post race interviews with Mater, Smokey, Natalie Certain and Miss Fritter as well as giving out racing news praising for the other racers winning performance/making comments about their loosing performance, making jokes about Lightning McQueen's losing or insulting him for winning (again), or show off Chick's winning performance or make excuses about his losing streak. He is also a playable character after defeating him and 99 clones of him in the master level event, Chick Hicks Takedown at Thomasville's Midnight Run. He also created the "Lightning Storm Cruise", a head to head race for Lightning McQueen, Jackson Storm and Cruz Ramirez at the Florida International Speedway which Chick's Picks with Chick Hicks and the RSN will be broadcasting. After the race, he said that Lightning wasn't done with racing yet and thinks he could have won it faster, and Lightning, Chick and Cruz watch Jackson Storm race against Miss Fritter in Thunder Hollow thinking that he can beat anyone anywhere.

    He also tries to sabotage Lightning McQueen's racing simulator and shut down Lightning's Academy and start the Chick Hicks Racing Academy (CHRA for short) while racing head to head at Chick's race track, the Chick Hicks Motor Speedway at the Lightning McQueen Racing Academy at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World, Orlando.

    In the Rioplatense Spanish version of Cars, Hicks is voiced by Marcos di Palma, a racecar driver also known for his brash attitude.

    In the Ukrainian dub of Cars, Hicks is voiced by Komu Vnyz frontman Andrei Sereda.

    Besides him, there is a similar character named Ripslinger in the 2013 Cars spin-off movie Planes and its 2014 sequel, produced by DisneyToon Studios.

    Chick's pit crew are a group of forklifts who do pit stops for Chick Hicks in his races. Like Chick, his pit team are green with black "moustache" grills on their faces and have Hostile Takeover Bank on their sides. One of them is a playa character in Cars Race-O-Rama's Guido Kart races.

    Chick Hicks's Students

    The Chick Hicks Racing Academy students (voiced by Mark Silverman and Josh Robert Thomson) are a group of race cars who learn to race from Chick Hicks. These cars may look similar to the Doc Hudson Racing Academy students but Chick's students learn how to race dirty like Chick did in the past. Each car is painted green with white, grey and black decals and different modifications. The first one has a white line across the top of his body. The second has white, gray and black diagonal lines across the sides. The third has white on the bottom and top of his body. The fourth has a gray shape that seems to resemble a scratch on the sides. All four of these cars are playable in Cars: Race-O-Rama except for the PS2 version where you only play as one. Unlike Candice, El Machismo and Stinger, they do not apologize to McQueen for their previous behavior.

    VINs

    Vehicle Identification Numbers, or VINs for short (voiced and performed by MacinTalk), are white robotic Piston Cup stock cars with grey rims and the black bar codes on their sides. They are actually Chick Hicks Racing Academy students, who are fed up with losing to Lightning McQueen, who went inside a Motor Co. factory in Autopia where the Motor Co. pitties stripped them down and transformed them into these super techno equipped race cars. They speak primarily in robotic phrases like "The numbers compute." Unlike Candice, El Machismo and Stinger, they do not betray Chick Hicks for their aggressiveness (mostly it's because of their programming). In their concept art, VINs were supposed to be modeled just like Chick and have the number 128 on the sides, top and right headlight to go with their bar codes. But their modeled as a Lux Motor Co. Piston Cup V8 who looked similar to Mac iCar in the Cars film and Joltsen and the other non playable Piston Cup cars from Cars the Video Game.

    IGNTR teamGale Beaufort is Jackson Storm's hauler and painted in the same livery as him. Like Storm, she has working laser headlights and taillights. She is a Next-Gen Semi Hauler. Gale Beaufort represents the pinnacle of next-gen transporters. Whenever she isn't on the road, she's buffing and shining her glossy black paint. Jackson Storm wouldn't have it any other way, as he only wants the best for his racing team. In Cars 3, she is seen after Storm wins his first race at Arizona's Cooper Canyon Speedway who rolls into his trailer, saying he touched a nerve before blasting his hip hop music from the speakers and closed it, allowing Gale to drive away. She currently has no voice actor.

    Radiator SpringsThese characters live in Radiator Springs with Lightning McQueen, his trainer Cruz Ramirez and their hauler, Mack.

    Tow Mater

    Mater is a rusty but extremely smart inspired 1956–57 International Harvester Tow truck and 1955-1957 Chevrolet Task Force and McQueen's best friend, and Holley Shiftwell's boyfriend. He is voiced by Larry the Cable Guy. Since his heroic actions and exposing Miles Axelrod in London, Mater is now known as "Sir Tow Mater".

    Sally Carrera

    Sally Carrera is the town's attorney and McQueen's girlfriend. She is voiced by Bonnie Hunt, and she is a 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera.

    Paul Newman in the first film and its video game and Corey Burton in all other related media. He is based on the 1951 Hudson Hornet. He did not appear in the second film, as it is implied that Doc died, and Newman died in September 2008 from lung cancer. He appeared in Cars 3 in McQueen's flashbacks with audio archives used by Newman in the past.

    He won three consecutive Piston Cups in 1951, 1952 and 1953 as a racer known as The Fabulous Hudson Hornet, and still holds the most wins in a single racing season with Smokey as his crew chief, corresponding to the first three of the real-life Hornet's production years.

    Sheriff

    The Sheriff (voiced by Route 66 historian and author Michael Wallis) is a 1949 Mercury Eight Police Cruiser police car,[16] bearing Carburetor County license plate 001. Sheriff is painted in the classic law enforcement black and white with a single red light dome, two sirens, and curb feelers. Sheriff was the first resident of Radiator Springs to appear in the original film and the first to meet Lightning McQueen during a police chase when McQueen was speeding through the town, attempting to locate Mack. Upon catching McQueen, who had become ensnared in wires and fencing, Sheriff paraphrases a line used by actor Joe Higgins, who played a sheriff in early 1970s Dodge commercials, as "Boy, you're in a heap of trouble.".[17]

    Sheriff was known to distrust McQueen; at one point when Sally gives McQueen some gasoline, Sheriff notices McQueen smiling at the road as if he is planning to escape. In reply Sheriff with a glare turns on his gumball in case. Lightning chooses to accompany Sally, rather than making an escape attempt, resulting in Sheriff switching off his emergency lighting. This marks

    Sheriff was known to distrust McQueen; at one point when Sally gives McQueen some gasoline, Sheriff notices McQueen smiling at the road as if he is planning to escape. In reply Sheriff with a glare turns on his gumball in case. Lightning chooses to accompany Sally, rather than making an escape attempt, resulting in Sheriff switching off his emergency lighting. This marks the beginning of trust in Lightning by Sheriff. He later befriends Lightning McQueen, offering him a police escort to California and even giving a few sniffles when he thought Lightning had left after finishing fixing the road (though he denied it, claiming he was glad Lightning was gone), and joins his pit crew for the championship race. In the end credits, Sheriff arrests the Road Hazards (the same ones who separated McQueen from Mack) caught racing illegally (via speeding) to Radiator Springs and have them impounded. As punishment for their crimes, he and Doc force them to repave the roads with Bessie.

    Sheriff reappears in Cars 2, seeing Lightning and his race crew off to the World Grand Prix. When Mater goes missing, Ramone mentions that Sheriff has Scotland Yard scouring London for Mater. During the climax of the film, Sheriff arrives with the other Radiator Springs residents as new members of McQueen's pit crew in England, and is informed by Mater of the Lemons cars' plot to kill McQueen in order to turn all vehicles in the world against alternate energy and rely on gasoline for profit. Sheriff then has Red the Firetruck squirt water on the Lemon cars during the final battle, and arrests most of the defeated ones with help from Sarge. Then the next day Sheriff cheers Mater on when he is knighted for foiling the evil plot led by surprisingly, the race and Allinol inventor Sir Miles Axlerod.

    Luigi (voiced by Tony Shalhoub, Michael Shalhoub in Disney Infinity) is a 1959 Fiat 500.[18] He is a Scuderia Ferrari fan, and has followed racing his entire life. His license plate reads 445–108, which is the latitude and longitude for the main Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy.[19] Luigi owns a tire shop, Casa Della Tires,[20] which is known for its "Leaning Tower of Tires", a tower of several tires shaped like the Leaning Tower of Pisa. His assistant is an Italian forklift truck named Guido.

    Inside his shop are many framed pictures of World Sportscar Championship endurance racing Ferraris from various points in history. At first, Luigi and Guido do not respect Lightning McQueen when he comes to Radiator Springs (owing to the substantial havoc that he inflicted upon the town when he first arrived), because he is not a Ferrari ("Luigi follow only the Ferraris"), but later on they learn to show courtesy to McQueen, fitting him with whitewall tires, since Luigi is a fan of white tires (having a pair himself). During the final race, Luigi and Guido work as part of Lightning's pit crew, and Guido sets the Piston Cup record in changing tires, taking only 4 seconds to change all the tires, sending the other pit crew into shock. He later congratulates McQueen when he helps The King finish

During the final race, Luigi and Guido work as part of Lightning's pit crew, and Guido sets the Piston Cup record in changing tires, taking only 4 seconds to change all the tires, sending the other pit crew into shock. He later congratulates McQueen when he helps The King finish his last race. After the race, a group of Italian sports cars – a Ferrari F430 (voiced by Michael Schumacher) and two Maserati Quattroportes – arrive at his shop, explaining that "Lightning McQueen told me this was the best place in the world to get tires" and requesting "three or four sets each". The presence of a celebrity Ferrari in their store causes both Luigi and Guido to faint from shock and happiness.

    For the Italian version of the film, Luigi was voiced by comedian Marco Della Noce; one of Della Noce's most popular characters was "Oriano Ferrari", a parody character meant to represent the leader of Ferrari's pit stop crew.[21]

    In Cars 2, Luigi is a part of Lightning's pit crew, in charge of the racer's tires. In Japan, he is naturally overjoyed to see so many Ferraris at a party prior to the first race of the World Grand Prix. He also hesitantly begins to explain to Mater what a rendezvous is, but he and Guido do not believe Mater when he believes he has a date ("Guido don't believe you!" "Guido still don't believe you!") Luigi and Guido are overjoyed to be back in their home of Italy, and rejoin their large group of family and friends. A little more is discussed of Luigi's past with Guido: Luigi's Uncle Topolino mentions that Luigi and Guido often fought when they worked for him (over things like which Ferrari was the best, and which one of them looked more like a Ferrari, etc.) but they always made up after their fights. Luigi joins his friends in a mêlée against Professor Zündapp's Lemons at the film's climax, and finally believes Mater's claims of a girlfriend when Holley Shiftwell confirms the fact in person at Radiator Springs.

    Guido (voiced by Guido Quaroni) is a forklift truck, who works at Luigi's Casa Della Tires, and is Luigi's best friend. The only language Guido can speak and understand fluently is Italian, though he appears to understand English, and even speaks a few phrases, including "Pit stop" but pronounced "Peet stop!". His dream is to perform a pit stop for a real racecar. Near the end of the movie, as a member of Lightning's new pit crew, he performs the fastest pit stop in Piston Cup history, speed-changing all four tires in only 4 seconds, shocking Chick Hicks' pit crew who had earlier made fun of him, and causing their moustaches/grills to fall off in the process.

    In order to preserve the "language barrier" gags between Guido and the other characters in the Italian dub, his lines (and the other cars' lines in Italian) have been rendered with the Emiliano-Romagnolo accent spoken

    In order to preserve the "language barrier" gags between Guido and the other characters in the Italian dub, his lines (and the other cars' lines in Italian) have been rendered with the Emiliano-Romagnolo accent spoken in the town of Modena, Italy, home of the Ferrari car manufacturer and racing team. Alex Zanardi, an Italian race driver who is a native of Bologna, the largest city in the Emilia-Romagna region (and thus presumably familiar with that dialect), voiced Guido for the Italian version. Coincidentally, or as a pun by the authors, the name "Guido" is a perfect homonym for the Italian inflected verb meaning "I drive".[citation needed]

    In Cars 2, Guido serves the same purpose he served in the first film's climax in Lightning's pit crew throughout the film. He also removed all tires from some of the Lemons when the malicious cars surrounded Lightning and Mater, but is unable to remove the bomb from Mater's nose (engine). Guido does not believe Mater when he says he has a date ("Non ci credo"), but has a jaw-dropping moment when he sees that Mater was telling the truth about his new girlfriend Holley Shiftwell (Guido believe you now! - Luigi).

    Ramone (voiced by Cheech Marin) is a 1959 Chevrolet Impala[22] Lowrider that owns the Ramone's House of Body Art store, where he paints himself and other cars, including Lightning McQueen later in the film. His garage employs the distinctive architecture of the Tower Station (U-Drop Inn) in Shamrock, Texas. His license plate reads "L0WNSL0", which is a reference to his catchphrase, "Low and slow". He is married to Flo, whose restaurant is next door to his store. Ramone is usually depicted as purple with a yellow and orange flame job, but throughout the film, he changes his paint job every morning (green, yellow, red in the first film, blue in Mater and the Ghostlight) to keep his skills sharp, owing to a lack of customers. This situation changes after Radiator Springs becomes vibrant again. He also likes to drive slow and very low on the road, and is overjoyed when the road is asphalted, enjoying the smoothness of the road. However, he does seem to have a childish side in his personality, as in a scene after Lightning McQueen has destroyed the town's main road, Sally asked Flo what she had in her store, the latter responding "I have gas, lots of gas!", and Ramone and Mater burst out laughing.

    In a deleted scene that told the story of how Ramone and Flo fell in love, the only customer Ramone has refused to paint was his future wife Flo. When she asked him, "Whassamatta, you too good to paint me?", he promptly and smoothly replies, "No baby, you too good for me to paint," and saying that he coul

    In a deleted scene that told the story of how Ramone and Flo fell in love, the only customer Ramone has refused to paint was his future wife Flo. When she asked him, "Whassamatta, you too good to paint me?", he promptly and smoothly replies, "No baby, you too good for me to paint," and saying that he could not touch a classic like Flo, which made her heart melt. The story took place in Radiator Springs in 1974. This part was shown in the info on Ramone in Cars Mater-National Championship.

    Ramone reappears in Cars 2, making a few appearances in the Radiator Springs scenes, though he joins everyone else to help McQueen in England. In the melee scene, Ramone disables one of the lemon cars by spray painting into the car's eyes, blinding him.

    In the movie Planes, when Dusty cuts off the radios power when El Chupacabra was singing the song "Love Machine", he says Ramone's catchphrase "Low and slow" which causes Chupacabra to sing a romance version of the song.

    Flo (based on Fran Hauser of Adrian's Midpoint Café and voiced by Jenifer Lewis) is the owner of Radiator Springs only gas diner, "Flo's V-8 Café", and is married to Ramone, the town's body artist. Her license plate reads "SHOGRL", the same as the license plates applied to many Motorama show cars and an abbreviation of the term "showgirl". During the cruising scene, "Motorama 1957" appears above her license plate. According to a deleted scene, she is a Motorama showcar who came to Radiator Springs during a national tour (although there wasn't a Motorama show held in 1957). Ramone custom painted her crew all except her. She asks "What's the matter, you too good to paint me?", and Ramone said "No baby, you're too good for me to paint.". They immediately fell in love. She appears to be inspired by two early- to mid-1950s show cars: the 1951 Buick XP-300 (side trim), and the 1956/57 Chrysler Dart (cockpit, deck lid, and tailfins).[23]

    Flo reappears in Cars 2 to help Lightning and Mater battle the Lemons (who were sent to kill Lightning by Miles Axlerod). Later, she and Sally are seen swooning over Francesco.

    In Toy Story 2, Al's car looks a lot like her;

    In Toy Story 2, Al's car looks a lot like her; she may be a reference to his car.

    Fillmore (based on Route 66 artist Bob Waldmire[24] — not acknowledged in the film's credits — and voiced by George Carlin in Cars, the Cars video game, Mater and the Ghostlight, and Cars Toons (via archives), Brian George in Cars: Mater-National Championship, Mark Silverman in Cars: Race-O-Rama and Lloyd Sherr in Cars 2, the second Cars video game and Cars 3) is a Volkswagen Type 2 microbus of late 1950s/early 1960s vintage[25] as evidenced by his pointed front turn signals and small rear window. Fillmore's license plate reads "51237", an easter egg which is a reference to May 12, 1937, the birthdate of George Carlin, and is also the ZIP code of George, Iowa.[26]

    He is a stereotypical hippie,[27] as he has stickers of the peace sign and flowers with his license plate positioned to resemble a soul patch. His name is a reference to the Fillmore East, a venue that was an epicenter for rock performances throughout the 1960s and 1970s (The Allman Brothers, The Grateful Dead, and Jimi Hendrix all made notable live recordings there, to name a few). He owns an organic fuel shop (Fillmore's Organic Fuel) which features several flavors, and believes gasoline companies are lying to the public. He is implied to smoke marijuana,[28] as it is indirectly referenced when he speaks of his organic fuel use.[29] In the morning, when next-door neighbor Sarge plays hippie,[27] as he has stickers of the peace sign and flowers with his license plate positioned to resemble a soul patch.

He is implied to smoke marijuana,[28] as it is indirectly referenced when he speaks of his organic fuel use.[29] In the morning, when next-door neighbor Sarge plays Reveille and raises the Flag of the United States, Fillmore interrupts Sarge's bugle reveille with Jimi Hendrix's rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner". This is much to Sarge's irritation, as he yells at Fillmore:

    Despite this, he is friends with Sarge, and the two can be seen chatting throughout the film.

    He has a sticker on his rear that says "I brake for Jackalopes". The jackalope is a mythical creature which features in the theatrical short Boundin', shown with The Incredibles. Another sticker says "Save 2D Animation". He has appeared in every Disney Cars game so far. As voiced by George Carlin, Fillmore's voice is similar to "Al Sleet, the hippy-dippy weatherman", a part of Carlin's comedy routine in the 1970s.

    Fillmore reappears in Cars 2, joining McQueen's pit crew as the fuel expert for the World Grand Prix. Fillmore was re-cast due to George Carlin's death, and was voiced by Lloyd Sherr. Fillmore initially supports Allinol as it supposedly does not use oil, even convincing McQueen it is safe after several accidents involving other cars using Allinol. However, for the final race, Sarge replaces McQueen's Allinol with Fillmore's organic fuel, which is what prevents Lightning from being killed in the race. He appears in Cars 3, once again a member of Lightning's pit crew as his fueler with Luigi and Guido handling McQueen's tires.

    Fillmore was originally going to be named Waldmire, after a Route 66 resident, but Waldmire, a vegan, didn't want his name to be used, because Fillmore toys would be featured in Happy Meals at McDonald's.

    Sarge (voiced by Paul Dooley) is a 1941 Willys Jeep. A veteran with a military green paint job and a slightly stylized Sergeant Major (E-9) insignia on his sides, he appears to be a World War II era Willys MB. His license plate reads "41WW2", which indicates the date the Willys MB entered the service of the U.S. Army (1941 World War II). He runs a surplus store, named "Sarge's Surplus Hut", next door to Fillmore and acts as part of Lightning's pit crew, gassing him up during the race. Near the end of the film, he operates a boot camp to train SUVs and 4×4s (some of whom had never been off-road) in rugged and dirt terrain. His recruits include T.J. Hummer, Murphy, Frank "Pinky" Pinkerton, and Charlie Cargo. During the Cars Video Game, Sarge trains McQueen in his boot camp as well by having some formal off-road racing training who McQueen passed in flying colors.

    Sarge reappears in Cars 2, using assistance from the British Army to aid in the melee against the Lemons. Prior to the final leg of the World Grand Prix, he secretly switches McQueen's supply of Allinol (the alternative fuel developed by race founder Sir Miles Axlerod) for Fillmore's organic fuel blend. Like Fillmore he became suspicious of the fuel after the incidents in Japan and Italy. The change saves McQueen from being killed as part of Axlerod's plot to discredit alternative fuels.

    Lizzie

    Katherine Helmond), a 1923 Ford Model T Coupe,[30] is the widow of Radiator Springs' founder, Stanley, and the elderly owner of a roadside souvenir and accessory shop (Radiator Springs Curios, which uses the "HERE IT IS" slogan and signage of the Jack Rabbit Trading Post on US 66). Her license plate, "MT23", is a reference to her model and year. Her name is derived from Tin Lizzie, one of the Model T's popular nicknames. She appears to have gone somewhat senile, and has a crush on Lightning McQueen. When she is shown teasing Luigi and Guido in the film, stating "The new road makes your place look like a dump.", Luigi angrily says that she is a crazy, devilish old woman but despairs at the truth of her words and sets to work repainting the Casa della Tires garage to its original appearance. She appears extremely motherly.

    Lizzie reappears in Cars 2 with a minor role. In the beginning she greets Lightning when he returns, but didn't even know he was gone all this time. She isn't present at the airport but is seen in the end talking to Mack about how crazy Holley Shiftwell is for keeping a dent. She also appears in Cars 3, which would be Helmond's final role before her death.

    She appears in the Cars Toons: Mater's Tall Tales episode "Time Travel Mater", where her and Stanley's backstories are revealed.

    Lizzie was originally going to be named Henry F. Ord, after Henry Ford. She also, at one point, originally resembled a Ford Model T "Center Door" Sedan[citation needed&

    Red (voiced by Joe Ranft and later Jerome Ranft) is a closed-cab pumper bearing Carburetor County license plate "002". He is shy and emotional which explains why he cries and drives away at the same time. He spends most of his time gardening and washing things, such as the statue of Stanley in front of his fire station. It was stated by Mater that Red "hated" Lightning McQueen, because he accidentally killed his flowers. Later, it is clear that Red had forgiven Lightning McQueen and warmed up to him, especially when he burst into tears and fled when he mistakenly thought that Lightning McQueen left without saying goodbye. While he gasped and sobbed in the film, he didn't really talk. In the first film, he seems to know about tractor-tipping as he used his horn to try and stop a stampede of tractors out of trying to protect his flowers. He formerly dislikes Lightning McQueen and he also dislikes crying and feeling upset and people vandalizing his flowers.

    Red reappears in Cars 2 as a non-speaking character. He only makes a small appearance at the airport crying as he sees Team McQueen taking off for Tokyo, also in the battle against the Lemons, where he arrives just in time to blast some of the
