notes that Cheech Marin has said in an interview that he is part of the cast for Pixar’s Cars. His character, named Ramon, is “the auto–body shop, paintjob and interior type guy. He’s a ’58 Chevy and every time you see him he’s got a new look, a new paintjob, new interior; he’s kinda like the tailor of the town.” He described the film as a “story about a little stock car racer…on his way to the big event and he breaks down in this little town that time forgot and it’s like this time capsule of old cars”. Marin’s previous animated voice work includes Oliver and Company, Ferngully: The Last Rainforest, and The Lion King.
