Cars 3: Ernie Gearson

Cars 3 Ernie Gearson diecast review

Tonight for my Cars 3 Mattel 1:55 scale diecast review, I'm taking you back to summer 2017 when the film had just been released. Ernie Gearson here (Spare Mint racer No. 93) originally hit shelves that August in Singles Case H and is one of the many Piston Cup stock car racers seen in the film. I know, I'm really behind getting some of these early Cars 3 releases up on the blog. Trust me when I say there are lots more coming!

As shown in the screen shot above, Ernie can be briefly spotted at the beginning of the film during the opening "Run That Race" montage. Blink and you miss him! Apparently this is suppose to be the same Ernie Gearson (even with the same racing number) that was also the Spare Mint racer in the original Cars... but I'm not sure I buy that (especially considering they have a totally different look). If that's what they say though! He is later replaced by a currently unnamed Spare Mint next-gen racer.

While this racer isn't available in stores currently as part of this year's lineup, you can find him easily online at either Amazon using the direct link below or eBay HERE. Have fun on the hunt if you're still looking to add this one to your Cars collection!

Let me know your thoughts down in the comments. Do you have a favorite Piston Cup racer?
