Rusty and Dusty Rust-eze are two brothers who founded a fuel trademark called Rust-Eze.




Rusty and Dusty with McQueen.

In Cars, Rusty and Dusty appear in the Rust-eze sponsor tent with several other rusty cars, showing a trailer of Rust-eze. Once Lightning is in his trailer, Rusty and Dusty both shout "Don't drive like my brother!"

Other appearances

Rusty and Dusty also appeared in the "And Now a Word from Our Sponsor" story of World of Cars. In the story, Rusty and Dusty are searching for a new race car to represent Rust-eze, and Mack recommends Lightning McQueen, due to being a huge fan of the rookie. Although McQueen is unsure of his decision when the initial offer is put up, he agrees, as long as Mack can be his transporter.

General information

Physical descriptions


Official artwork of Rusty.

Rusty is a 1963 Dodge Dart that is painted in a dark shade of green, though he is very rusty, and the colors are a bit faded. His roof seems to be very dirty, and he has a grey bumper.

Dusty is a 1967 Dodge A100 Van that is also painted in a dark shade of green, but his rust makes the colors appear faded, like Rusty's. Dusty has a stripe across the middle of his body, that reads "DODGE" under his windshield.

Personalities and traits

Though Rusty and Dusty like to joke around a lot, they are both very kind, especially to each other, as well as Lightning McQueen. Both appear to treat their fellow rusty cars as a family.

It's been over 15 years and their mother has watched their operation grow into a household name with factories all over the country. Rusty and Dusty's mother says she couldn't be more proud of her two boy's accomplishments, but hopes that their next big move will be to finally move out of her garage."

      • "Dusty and his brother Rusty like to help out their fellow rusty cars almost as much as they like telling jokes. And that's why they invented Rust-eze Medicated Bumper Ointment. Be it the distinguished browning around the wheel well or the bumper that's completely falling off, Rusty and Dusty are there with a can of Rust-eze to fit it, or at least ease the burning, itching, and soreness that plagues so many cars."
