Ramone is a 1959 Chevy Impala lowrider who owns the Ramone's Paint and Body Art store, where he paints himself and other cars, including Lightning McQueen later in the film. His license plate reads "L0 N SL0", which is a reference to his catchphrase, "low and slow". He is married to Flo, whose restaurant is next door to his store. Ramone is usually depicted purple with a yellow and orange flame job, but throughout the film he changes color every morning to keep his skills sharp, since he gets no customers. This situation changes after Radiator Springs becomes vibrant again.
The only customer Ramone has refused to paint was his future wife Flo. When she asked him, "Whassamatta, you too good to paint me?" he promptly and smoothly replies, "No way, you too good for me to paint," and saying that he couldn't paint a classic. Ramone and Flo's meeting was only shown in a deleted scene. That was how Ramone and Flo fell in love. It should be noted that Ramone is the third Disney character to be voiced by Cheech Marin, the other two beind Tito the chihuaha from Oliver and Company and Banzai the hyena from The Lion King.
Flo is a car who owns Radiator Springs's only gas diner, "Flo's V-8 Café" and is married to Ramone, the town's body artist. Her license plate reads "SHOGRL", the same as the license plates applied to many Motorama show cars, and an obvious pun on the term "showgirl". Flo's coat is light green. She is voiced by Jenifer Lewis. She is a Motorama showcar, and came to Radiator Springs during a national tour in a deleted scene.It may be a play on Florence Jean Castleberry from the TV show Alice. However, this may be unlikely, as she was a waitress at the diner, not the owner.
