Edwin Kranks is a former resident of Radiator Springs.
Edwin was a creature of habit, regular oil checks, dinner for one at Flo's every night, and a new coat of tan paint every year. Until a weekend with some old college buddies lead to an unforgettable night, Edwin can't seem to recall, resulted in a shocking metal flake apple green paint job. To his horror, everyone in town couldn't stop staring at him, but to his surprise the girls in town couldn't stop staring either. Edwin's habits didn't change too much after that, though dinner at Flo's every night became dinner for two.
In Cars, Edwin makes a quick appearance during the flashback sequence to the old days of Radiator Springs, where he is driving to Flo's V8 Cafe.
Edwin is painted light green, with dark green designs on his doors, roof and hood. He has green rims, surrounded by whitewall tires, and a gray bumper.
Edwin is a 1944 Piedmont Hauser. His design also resembles a 1953 Chevrolet Coupe.
