Lightning McQueen meets Jerry

Jerry (credited as Peterbilt) is a character in Cars.


"Jerry's a pretty easygoing guy. Nothing makes him happier than running routes on the open road, no one to report to, no need to wash. It's the best! There's only one thing that can set him in a bad mood, and that's being mistaken for a Mack truck. After all, he's a Peterbilt and proud of it!"[1]
