Stanley is the departed town patriarch and radiator cap salesman of Radiator Springs who is also the deceased husband of Lizzie. He is depicted in the film Cars in the form of a bronze statue that stands at the end of Main Street, in front of the Town courthouse and the Radiator Springs Fire Department.The statue appears to be black, with water coming out from the pedestal. In Time Travel Mater, he was voiced by John Michael Higgins.

History

The statue of Stanley marks the very spot where Radiator Springs was founded. As he was traveling west searching for a place to settle and make his fortune, Stanley stumbled upon a natural spring coming up from the earth. He stopped to fill his radiator and never left. Soon afterward Stanley met Lizzie, the love of his life, and together they founded Radiator Springs, which soon became a legendary resting spot for travelers making their way across Route 66.

Cars 2

At the end of Cars 2, Mater passed the statue with his rockets, causing the statue to spin around, but it landed on its original spot.
