At the end of the first race at the start of the movie, the twins Mia and Tia flash their headlights at McQueen. This is a sly wink to adult racing fans, who know that "flashing their headlights" is the term for when female fans lift their shirts and show their breasts to the racers. See more »
This movie is supposed to be about a non-human world of just automobile-related entities (even the audience to the Piston Cup races is made up of cars, the "cows" are tractors, and the "insects" are miniature cars complete with horns), so presumably Harv is also a car, and therefore --- just like when Mater is "enjoying a cool morning beverage" by sipping from a pouring-spout hooked into a can of motor oil --- he would not be accustomed to consuming regular "human food", and so he would not speak of "breaking bread" with McQueen..

Okay, here we go. Focus. Speed. I am speed. One winner, forty-two losers. I eat losers for breakfast. Breakfast? Maybe I should have had breakfast? Brekkie could be good for me. No, no, no, focus. Speed. Faster than fast, quicker than quick. I am Lightning.

I went to the premier of "Cars" last night at the Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concorde and was delighted to find that the hours of traffic were worth it.
The story has a clear point and the message of friendship is easily understood by kids and adults alike. The variety of humor suits all generations, too, making this the first "summer must see" for the family.
Being an artist I was struck by the vibrancy of the animation. The colors were rich and beautiful, and there was such diverse vocal talent that the entire experience made it a treat for the crowd's eyes and ears. I've never been to a movie with more than a few hundred people in the theater, but let me assure you that all 30,000+ attendees at the Speedway last night applauded during the credits and for some very, very good reasons.
