Were there any sentient beings in the Car universe before the invention of cars themselves? If so, what were they powered by if anything?

** Also, RuleOfFunny.

Added DiffLines:

*** Doc didn't ''want'' to make the town popular again. He preferred it the way it was at the time. He tried to dismiss the charges and kick [=McQueen=] out at first, and when that didn't work, he deliberately gave him as low a profile punishment as he could. As for Sally, she saw him as yet another {{jerk jock}} just trying to get into her trunk; i.e. someone not worth her time.

Added DiffLines:

** Okay, you guys went from gas to where cars come from? Didn't Mack mention the "Manufacturer"? Which I'm pretty sure is their equivalent of God. Also, I'd like to have seen the first submarine to sprout wheels.

Added DiffLines:

** I think it's more that they die when all their parts stop functioning.

Added DiffLines:

** Don't they? They're shown to have restrooms in this film and the sequel, and the scene where Mater (actually Axlerod) leaks oil at a party is treated similarly to a case of PottyFailure in-universe.


** Probably not, but they could've ''feared'' that that's what might have happened.

[[folder: How does the "He did what in his cup" joke work?]]
* When Lightning says that Doc won three Piston Cups, Mater replies, "He did what in his cup?!", the joke being that he thought Lightning said, "[[JarPotty he pissed in his cup]]", but cars don't pee, so how does the joke work?

Added DiffLines:

**He said "Tow Mater." He just has a goofy accent.

Added DiffLines:

** My guess is that the rules of racing are a lot more lenient in a world where cars are sentient beings. If every wreck can cause such major injuries, there's probably some sort of liability waiver when you enter into a race that you understand it's a risky business and that potential injury is to be expected. So Chick's knocking the King off the road, while low and unsportsmanlike, wasn't enough to disqualify him.

* [[PixarShorts ''Tokyo Mater'']] apparantly featured the automobile equivalent of nudity, where Kabuto will actually strip any car that challenges him to a race and loses of their modifications, and in the end Kabuto as a result of him losing his own race becomes naked himself. How the heck do you strip a car naked?
