In the beginning of the film, Lightning McQueen is a skilled but arrogant, self-centered up-and-coming racer. Hoping to be the first rookie to win the Piston Cup trophy and gain a lucrative endorsement deal from Dinoco Oil, he finishes in a three-way tie with perennial runner-up Chick Hicks and veteran Strip “The King” Weathers.
You know, I think this is a good place for me to say that Lightning & Sally is really the thing that I love the most about the original Cars. I just love that relationship that they have and their drive together is like the high point of the movie for me. They’re up there with all the other Pixar couples like Flik & Atta, Wall-E & EVE, Bob & Helen, etc. That’s why I wished that they would show more of that relationship.
I love Sally and McQueen I think they are PERFECT for each other. One thing I am sad about is unless they make it like Toy Story they will not make a cars 3. So all the romance better happen in the 2 hour film or I will be shocked I hope they don’t make it like the other movies were one of the two lovers start to fall in love with another “car” and will not be together. Or hopfully they don’t get in a big fight about how lightning cares about racing more then a relationship, and they go there separite ways. I hope not. I love romance in Disney moves. Maybe lightning will save Sally in some way???Who knows.
