In Cars, Wingo is first seen when Mack is slowly falling asleep after Lightning McQueen tells him that they need to get to California as fast as they can to talk with Dinoco before Chick Hicks. The four tuners mess with Mack, pushing him from side to side while DJ plays soft music to help Mack fall asleep. However, their plan fails when Snot Rod sneezes and wakes up McQueen's driver. They all race off before Mack knows what they were doing to him, and not knowing they have caused Lightning McQueen to fall out of his trailer. Wingo and his group of friends are not seen again until the epilogue, where they are seen speeding past Sheriff, going towards Radiator Springs. They are eventually caught and are forced to pave the road with Bessie, similar to what Lightning McQueen had to do when he arrived in the town.

In story mode, Wingo first appears sitting outside of the event token for Delinquent Road Hazards. In the cutscene for the event, the four cars are blocking the road, and when Lightning questions why, DJ tells him to get lost. After McQueen annoys him by pretending to not hear him, Wingo reinstates with "He said get lost, pal", to which Lightning replies with a remark about his tall spoiler. After losing the race they are challenged to, the delinquents swear revenge and then speed off.
Their revenge comes when Mack is driving on the interstate, and, hired by Chick, raid him and steal all of Lightning's racing gear from the trailer. After talking things over with Sheriff about the robbery, Lightning speeds off onto the interstate and catches up with the four eventually, which he smashes to steal his gear back. Upon being arrested, they admit that they were hired by Chick to do it, and that it was not their idea.

Cars: Fast as Lightning
In Cars: Fast as Lightning, Wingo makes another appearance as a playable character, unlocked once all of his stickers are earned while playing as Snot Rod. When he is unlocked, a decoration based on him, titled Wingo's Digs, will also become available, along with his track.
Wingo is a Gashi Wingo, which is also where his name comes from. He is also based on a 2004 Acura RSX and a 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse. He sports headlights that blind other cars. His swooping side and front panels add extra resistance. If spoilers pressed him any closer to the road, he would be flat.
His license plate simply reads his name, "WINGO", and it also says he is from Spoilerville. Wingo is painted green and purple, with a black grille and chrome headlights. He has white Japanese letters written on his side (which read "インポート", meaning "import"), surrounding an orange design. On his trunk, he has a gigantic spoiler, made out of five spoilers stacked on top of each others. He has a yellow line as eyebrows. He has green rims, with orange lining, and pipes on his back that emit flames.
Personality and traits
Wingo is a delinquent that appears to not pay or even concern attention to the rules, as he and his gang are constantly getting arrested for breaking the law. He has a love for practical jokes, as he and his friends put Mack to sleep in the middle of the highway.
Wingo also has a love for body painting, as he owns his own body shop like Ramone.
"In grade school Wingo's outrageous, inappropriate paint schemes didn't comply with the school's strict paint code, and got him into a lot of trouble. These days, Wingo makes a good living designing paint schemes for an illustrious clientele at his own custom paint shop. Now that his paint doesn't get him into trouble, Wingo and his gang find new ways to get into trouble."

"With wings as high as a double decker bus, Wingo certainly stands out in a crowd, but can he stand out as an agent?"
