    this movie sounds confusing. will kids be confused?

    (MET: As long as your kids understand the concept of age (retirement), they’ll get it – and of course, ask if you were around when there were dinosaurs. 🙂 ).

    Hi, I ask:
    Lightning McQueen Fabulous “Mistery” Dinoco Blue
    Has the number # 95 or # 51 n the 2 versions Mattel 1-55 and
    Disney Store 1-43, and why?
    Thanks for the answers!

    • Mack_me_Bucko says:

      I think what you are asking is why two different versions of the Fabulous Lightning McQueen? The version seen with the #51 is a test image that was developed early in the process of making the film, when the plot likely had the sponsors in the epilogue for Cruz and McQueen swapped. The book “The Art of Cars 3” shows they made many changes to the plot as the process developed.

      Both the Disney Store and Mattel versions I have seen show #95 on McQueen.

    Fabulous McQueen is not Dinoco, it is rusteze…the Pop got it right.
    He was still bound to rust-eze, which is why Tex dinoco bought Rust-eze at the end of the moview and signed Cruz..I think this is early artwork, as MET suggests

    • tzdtmm says:

      I thought Cruz somewhat told off Sterling and said “I can’t race for you” and that’s when Tex said “then come race for Dinoco” and she accepted, and McQueen is still bound to Rusteze and Sterling? Did Tex actually buy Rusteze? My 3 year old started acting out in the last 10 mins or so, so I may have missed that? Sorry to spoil this for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet. I really need to see it a second time. And this time try and find the mystery tiller in the background because I missed it!

      • Mack_me_Bucko says:

        Tex takes Sterling aside and says “let’s talk billionaire to billionaire” …

        Later Lightning says he hopes Tex doesn’t mind that he gave Cruz #51 (rather than the traditional #43 for Dinoco). Which adds to the memorial as well, because it also retires The King’s number in the same act.

    Met so where does this 51 on Mcqueen come into the movie or the diecasts?

    (MET: From ART OF CARS – it looks like it’s just a CGI mockup. WAiting on full res photos of actual diecast).

    • BMW says:

      Oh, I haven’t opened my Art of Cars yet. So Pixar contemplated Mcqueen taking Doc’s number but then gave it to Cruz instead?

      (MET: Only See CARS 3 once – doesn’t McQ show up for the Dirt race with Cruz at RS wearing 51?)

      • Mack_me_Bucko says:

        At one point in the writing, it was clear they had both Lightning and Cruz racing against Storm, using each of their skills to throw Storm off his game. The final film of course shows more of the mentor / student aspect.

        • tzdtmm says:

          I was really wanting to see McQueen defeat Storm himself, it was a little bit of a letdown to not witness that…Storm was so rotten to him.

  • Mack_me_Bucko says:

    Also note: the images above do not represent the appearance of the final diecast. The diecast is similar to this, but the sponsor is Rust-eze with the name as a blaze on the hood and Lightning maintains his #95. Cruz races for Dinoco and takes Doc’s #51.
