"No, no, no, no, no!"
Taco, Cars 3

Taco[1] is a rusty pick-up truck who enjoys competing in demolition derby rallies at the Thunder Hollow Speedway. His body is badly bent in a "V" shape, and he has the number 4 painted on his doors. He is a 1982 Equalizer Mule.[2]


Taco received his name when his body was bent into the shape of a taco following a wreck. His wife then painted him in a fitting livery.[2]

In Cars 3, Taco is one of the many opponents of whom Lightning McQueen and Cruz Ramirez face while competing in a demolition derby at the Thunder Hollow Speedway. Taco is seen ramming Faregame into Dr. Damage, eliminating them both. Taco is eliminated from the competition when Miss Fritter crashes into him and catapults him into the air, making him land face-first, and therefore, he gets stuck in the mud.

Profiles and statistics

  • Bio
    • "The question Taco gets asked the most from his fans is this: "How did you get your name?" Taco was sandwiched between two other cars in a wreck, and when he came to, his new shape resembled that of a taco. His wife added some realistic paint, and a star was born."[2]
