Blue Mater Cars
The original Mater cars were originally baby blue. However, with the passage of time, they have turned a patchwork of light brown and orange. In addition, one of the headlights and hood are missing. This is likely due to a collision at Tailfin Pass with a cliff. The license plate number is still A113.
In the third installment of the franchise, Mater plays an important supporting role. The character is the best friend of Lightning McQueen and never misses a race. He also helps McQueen when he crashes and comforts him afterward. In the film, Mater is also one of the many residents of Radiator Springs who witness McQueen’s decision to continue racing.
Mater is an avid automotive enthusiast. Mater is an expert on car engines and parts. In a coded question about a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia, he answers correctly and uses the car’s spare parts to help it run. Mater also helps to capture Sir Miles Axlerod, the villain. However, Mater’s knighthood is uncertain because of his nationality.
Lightning and Sally share the same premise. Lightning and Sally enjoy driving. Sally insists that Mater bring Mater along to the World Grand Prix. Francesco also mentions her in the toast to Sally, claiming that Lightning called her. The two cars also bond over their love and Sally is Mater’s most loyal friend.
Mater is a friendly, lovable character that was introduced in the first Cars movies. He is also Lightning McQueen’s best friend. He possesses a thick Southern redneck accent and uses incorrect syntax. While he is a friendly character, Mater is still a naive and talented daredevil.
Mater, along with Lightning and Mater, has a long history in racing. During the first season, Lightning McQueen video calls Mater, asking for help against his rival Jackson Storm. He also recommends that Lightning seek advice from Smokey, the mentor of Doc Hudson. Mater is also known to distract Sterling during the first and third race of the season.
Lightning and Mater cars can be seen on two Disney theme parks: Disneyland’s California Adventure in Anaheim, CA and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Lake Buena Vista, FL. There are also several unofficial replicas, which have been created by fans of the movie. They are usually followed by other characters.
