Syd VanDerKamper is a character in Cars.


"Each year "Syd" VanDerKamper migrates cross country to see his favorite Piston Cup races. Last year on his way to the Los Angeles International Speedway, he swung through Kingman, Arizona where he found plastic flamingos at a local garage sale! Now a permanent fixture on Syd's "front lawn," his plastic bird friends have earned him an honored sport atop fabled Redneck Hill."[1]


  • He is surrounded by flamingos, which are a reference to Knick Knack. However, they are not car-ified.
