Tow Mater is a rusty brown towtruck from Cars and Cars 2. He made an appearance in "Rogi Gets A Furby", asking where Gani is. After he saves Gani with his trusty tow cable, he throws Furby and Rogi a party. Larry the Cable Guy voices him in the films. Another tow truck like him is named Buddy, who has the same colour as Mater when he was a younger tow truck. His catchphrase is "Dad gum!".
- His best friend is Lightning McQueen.
- With Finn McMissile & Holley Shiftwell, Mater was mistaken for a spy in Cars 2.
- He loves going "tractor tipping" at night.
