McQueen, Sally Carrera, Sheriff, Guido,
Luigi, Flo, Ramone, Doc Hudson, Sarge,

2 Mater even has a love interest.
Mater has a lot of difference paint jobs and
costumes in the cars series which includes

hints of blue paint and green paint on the
door and letters which say 'Tow Mater:
Radiator Springs,' he also has a missing
headlight and a flashing yellow light on top
of his tow truck.

Mater's role really steps up and he really
does steal the show.

Land at Disney's California Adventure which
is scheduled to open in the Summer of 2012.
