CARS

The Car Stars/Voice Talents
LIGHTNING MCQUEEN—Poised to become the youngest car ever to win the Piston Cup Championship, this hotshot rookie race car has just two things on his mind—winning and the perks that come with it. But when he gets detoured in the forgotten town of Radiator Springs and has to shift for himself, he gets a crash course on what matters most in life. Owen Wilson ("Bottle Rocket,” "Shanghai Noon,” "Meet the Fockers,” "Wedding Crashers”) is up to speed as the voice of this cocky race car who learns that life is about the journey, not the destination.

DOC HUDSON—A seemingly quiet country doctor (mechanic) with a mysterious past, this 1951 Hudson Hornet is a cornerstone of Radiator Springs,and also serves as town judge. Respected and admired by the townsfolk, Doc is a car of few words and is unimpressed by the town's newest arrival—Lightning McQueen. The speed-obsessed hotshot race car dismisses Doc as just an old grandpa car but comes to discover that the old-timer still has a few tricks under his hood. Acting legend, Oscar® winner, and Guinness Book World Record Holder (the oldest driver to win a professionally sanctioned race in 1995 in Daytona) Paul Newman gives a winning performance as the voice of this venerable vehicle.

SALLY CARRERA—This sporty 2002 Porsche 911 from California grew tired of life in the fast lane and made a new start for herself in Radiator Springs. As the proprietor of the Cozy Cone Motel, and one of the town's most optimistic boosters, she has high hopes that it will one day return to its former glory and wind up "back on the map.” She takes an instant shine to Lightning McQueen and helps to steer him in the right direction. Multitalented actress/filmmaker Bonnie Hunt ("A Bug's Life,” "Monsters, Inc.,” "Cheaper By the Dozen”) gives a premium performance as Sally, with just the right blend of charm, intelligence and wit.

MATER—This good ol' boy tow truck may be a bit rusty on the outside, but he has the quickest towrope in Carburetor County and is always the first to lend a helping hand. Sweet and loyal to a fault, Mater befriends McQueen and sees his potential as his new best friend, despite his many flaws. The self-proclaimed "world's best backwards driver,” Mater dreams of someday flying in a helicopter, but stays grounded with his day job running "Tow-Mater Towing and Salvage.” Comedy sensation Larry the Cable Guy gives a "tow-de-force” vocal performance that is both hilariously funny and touching.

FILLMORE—Radiator Springs' resident hippie is a 1960 VW bus who brews his own organic fuel and preaches its many benefits. Visitors can check it out for themselves in the tasting room behind his love-bead-and-tie-dye-covered geodesic dome. His conspiracy theories and unkempt yard don't sit well with his neighbor, Sarge, but despite their frequent disagreements, they can't live without one another. Comedy legend George Carlin gives a far-out performance as the voice of this peace-loving bus.

SARGE—This patriotic 1942 WWII Willys Army jeep runs Radiator Springs' army surplus store, Sarge's Surplus Hut, and is often found manicuring the lawn in front of his Quonset hut into a precise flat-top. Although he likes to complain about his VW bus neighbor, he knows that life is more interesting with Fillmore around. Actor Paul Dooley ("Breaking Away,” "Desperate Housewives”) sounds off as this regimented vehicle whose bark is worse than his bite.

RAMONE—The proprietor of Ramone's House of Body Art, this 1959 Impala low-rider is a true magician with paint and metal, but he hasn't had anyone to customize in years. While waiting for a paying customer to come along, he repaints himself daily and hopes that McQueen will consent to letting him add a few new flourishes. Comedian/actor Cheech Marin turns in a colorful performance as the voi
