Ramone is a 1959 Chevrolet Impala low-rider that appears in the Cars franchise. He owns an auto body shop in Radiator Springs which is called Ramone's House of Body Art which is across the street from Flo's V8 Cafe. Flo is his wife. Between scenes in Cars, he would completely change the paint on his body due to lack of work in town.
A true artist isn't afraid to take chances, explore new ways to express themselves, or push the limits of culture. Ramone believes that the automotive body can be a vehicle of expression, which is why every day for Ramone is a new chance to explore new paint jobs and push the limitless boundaries of his art. Sometimes, he'll get very angry after Lightning McQueen destroyed the town. He'll say "Whoa, watch the paint man".
Ramone makes a brief appearance at the beginning of Mater and the Ghostlight.
Ramone has made a few cameo appearance in some of the Cars Toons shorts.
Ramone owns and operates Ramone's House of Body Art, Radiator Springs' custom body and paint shop. Ramone is an artist and a true magician with paint and metal. There was a time when his only canvas was himself, so he repainted himself daily. But since Lightning McQueen helped put Radiator Springs back on the map, Ramone has had his share of customers - including the star race car himself. Before heading off to the World Grand Prix, Lightning stops by Ramone's for a new paint job, and Ramone gives him a whole new look, even adding a spoiler to him.
Ramone appears to have replaced Doc Hudson for the repair of cars, since Doc passed away.
In the movie, Ramone greets Lightning McQueen when he comes to town. He also helps the lemon, Otis get fixed up. He then later sees Lightning off at the airport. He returns in London with a paint job resembling the United Kingdom flag. He also helps Lightning and Mater fight the lemons by spray painting Tubbs Pacer in the eyes.
