A 1951 Hudson Hornet, Doc Hudson is Radiator Springs’ medical doctor and judge. He sentences Lightning to fix the town’s road after destroying it. He hides his past from his friends, which Lightning accidentally discovers, which Doc does not like one bit. In the climax, his new, selfless persona is established just after Chick purposefully causes The King to crash on the infield near the end of the tiebreaker race, causing him to stop just before the finish line and let Chick win. He then proceeds to help The King finish the race, which shows the audience he’s the true winner. It is established even further when he politely turns down the Dinoco sponsorship in favor of Rust-eze, and moves to Radiator Springs and sets up his racing headquarters there.
After seeing Lightning beat a modified Chick in the Race-O-Rama finals in Radiator Springs Speedway, he apologized to him along with his friends, Candice and Stinger for their previous behavior. He says to Lightning that he’s better than bad, faster than fast which he meant he likes how he races. Lightning accepted his apology and invites him over to his racing academy anytime who greatly accepts.

And for $59.95, I think, they’d even roll down the windows first. So my brother, Tom, chose his then-current car, which was a 1963 Dodge Dart convertible with rust up to the windows and a family of racoons that lived in the back seat. It was not a great car, but the top went down and that was all he really cared about.
Cletus is painted green with the number 6 on his sides with a faded orange circle and number boards. Cletus’ dialogue suggests that he is the oldest of Mater’s cousins, as he sometimes refers to himself as “old-timer” and tells his opponents to “mind their elders” when he is passed. Barry, even though supportive with his group, appears to be more spineless than them, and most of his dialogue revolves around him attempting to impress Vince. Duff Wrecks is a white pickup truck briefly seen one lane away from the Delinquent Road Hazard gang on I-40. Shannon Spokes interviews racers after they win and not being afraid to ask questions.
Francesco Bernoulli grew up in the shadow of the famous Monza race course in Italy where he and his friends would sneak onto the track and race the famous Pista di Alta Velocita bank turn. He was an instant winner on the amateur circuit and soon became an international Formula Racer champion. The ladies love Francesco’s open wheels, youngsters look up to his winning spirit and fellow racers envy his speed. But Francesco’s biggest fan is Francesco himself, as evidenced by his racing number. As the most famous race car in Europe, #1 Francesco is a favorite to win the World Grand Prix, which also makes him McQueen’s chief rival. The filmmakers wanted the cars to look and feel authentic, so that the audience would relate to them as characters.
But the French Rochelle does not have the red maple leaf decals on her body. The Sheriff is a 1949 Mercury Eight Police Cruiser police car, 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.”.
