Had the pleasure of meeting Mr McQueen at the NASCAR hall of fame a few years back. Wouldn’t sign any kids autographs or talk about his legendary career though which was kinda disappointing but he probably had a long day https://preview.redd.it/98b1zyr5b62b1.jpeg?width=4032&format=pjpg&auto=webp&v=enabled&s=5c60c2a33445fce78b90f2b96325e12206b71588


I saw Lightning McQueen at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything. He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?” I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hood shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to drive out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his trunk without paying. The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be out of gas and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter. When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.


You have to think a public apology is coming after an outburst like that


“Hey y’all I just wanted to say I’m sorry…”


Cars 4 confirmed.


I have the texts.


He must have been having one of his Cars 2 PTSD flashbacks. That explains the vacant expression and cold personality.


The Chick Hicks erasesure is real


I keep saying it's happening, nobody listens till it's a way bigger problem


Sometimes it feels like the Chick Era was over before it began....


Go 95 kachooooww






Met him at the Clash this year! Quiet dude. His handlers were cool though.


If Lightning McQueen is an anthropomorphic car, does that make this a model or a statue?


Is McQueen supposed to be a Viper? A Miata? I've heard people say Corvette but I don't see the resemblance.


According to the Pixar Fandom Wiki: Lightning McQueen is a 2006 Custom-Built Piston Cup Racing stock car (a mixed NASCAR with some tweaks). Lightning's design was inspired by NASCAR stock cars, and a more curvaceous Plymouth Superbird, 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, and with some slight cues from the Ford GT40, Lola, and Porsche 911. ALL of Lightning McQueen's engine sounds come from NASCAR, including all his revs. In Cars, it comes from a Gen 4 NASCAR (could be a Chevy Monte Carlo, Ford Taurus, Pontiac GP or Dodge Charger). In Cars 2, it comes from a Chevy Impala SS, Ford Fusion, or Toyota Camry NASCAR from 2010 or 2011. In Cars 3, it comes from a Gen 5 NASCAR, which could also be a Chevy SS, Ford Fusion, or Toyota Camry NASCAR. There are lies and rumours that he has some other sounds from a Cobra or street supercar. Also, Lightning's back bumper is yellow. This follows NASCAR's tradition of putting yellow rookie stripes on rookie drivers' cars. **Other random specs:** Top speed: 198 mph (200 at the time of Cars 2) Acceleration: 0 to 60 mph (100 kph): 4 seconds (was 3.2 at the time of Cars 2) Engine: NASCAR 358 C. I. (Cubic inches) 5.9-liter V-8 Width: 78 inches Height: 53 inches Length: 206 inches Drivetrain: Front Engine, Rear Wheel Drive layout (RWD) Horsepower: 750HP (900 at the time of 2006 film according to the Cars 1 video game) Fuel System: Carburetor. Fuel type: Gasoline, American Ethanol Transmission: Stock Car Regulation 4 Speed + Reverse (Automatic) Brakes: Vented, air-cooled, cast-iron disc brakes on all wheels, 4-piston front and 2-piston rear caliper. Suspension: Coil-over shocks (Rear), Double Wishbone (Front)


So he's a mutt.


Ok so according to the Sheryl Crow song real gone and the fact that all other shown cars match roughly with real world vehicles she states from McQueen’s perspective “I'm American made, Bud Light, Chevrolet My mama taught me wrong from right I was born in the South” This shows that he is a Chevy and assuming the piston cup used the same cars as the cup series he would be a Monte Carlo as that was the Chevy at the time


Chevy 🤮🤮🤮


I had the pleasure of meeting Lightning at The Clash this year. The celebs really turned out for the race in LA.


Did you also happen to meet Cal Weathers? Did he really hang up his light-years?
