Tommy Joe is the leader of Mater's 6 cousins. His number is 83, he says trying to dent him is like trying to get mud wet, he isn't very smart. His paintjob ressembles an American Flag, as he is a daredevil.
Cars: The Video Game Edit
Tommy Joe gives Lightning a "Hoodbutt" as a way of saying "Howdy!". He competes in Rustbucket Race-O-Rama where he is not playable.
Cars: Mater-National Championship Edit
Tommy Joe competes in the first 3 rustbucket races, again not playable.
Tommy Joe is expected to be a playable character. They plan to adjust him by giving him 2 exhaust pipes, a lower chassis, and license plate text "C TGLGR".
Tommy Joe would have been a playable character if the game released. He appears on the title screen.
Tommy Joe makes a cameo as the car of Poliwhirl's "Derbist" utility. He isn't alive, though. And instead of being painted with an American Flag, he is painted with an Apolican Flag. His number is also changed to 61 to represent Poliwhirl, who's National PokéDex number is #061.
