Radiator Springs Mural Painter
- Nice day, huh?
- —Derek Dobbs, Cars
In Cars, Derek appears in a flashback to the golden age of Radiator Springs. He drives toward the town, cheerfully greeting other cars who pass him by.
"Derek "Decals" Dobbs came to Radiator Springs to find a job with his old pal Ramone, touching up paint jobs and giving clientele much needed facelifts. Derek not only paints cars, he also paints murals. He painted a beautiful mural on the side of one of the town shops, declaring Radiator Springs "A Happy Place.""
