Cars: Pit Crew Member Fillmore

"There's a lotta love out there, you know man?" -Fillmore, Cars

Fillmore is another one of my favorite characters from Cars. His 60s voice and personality is priceless as well as his few, but classic, lines. 

This 1:55 scale diecast from Mattel is based on Fillmor's appearance at the end of the film, when he was a part of Lighning Mcqueen's pit crew for the big race (screen shot above). 

This diecast was released in "The World of Cars" line, as seen here, but was also available in the "lenticular eyes" collection.

Fun Fact: In the original Cars, Fillmore was voiced by George Carlin, but after the actor's death in 2008, Pixar hired Lloyd Sherr as a replacement sound alike for Cars 2 and most of the Cars Toons short films.
