Vince appears to be a 1971 Pontiac Firebird that is painted red, with white lines up his hood and roof, along with the number "9" painted on his doors. He has chrome rims, and while he does not possess a rear license plate in most versions of the games, he has one in the Wii version of Cars: The Video Game and the Wii and PS3 versions of Cars: Mater-National Championship, simply reading "VINCE".
Cars: The Video Game
In Cars: The Video Game, Vince first appears as one of the speeders that Sheriff must chase down in the "Hot Rodders" level of Sheriff's Hot Pursuit. He and his gang later appear in the cutscene for Ornament Valley Circuit in which they inform Lightning that they have come to Radiator Springs to help him train for the remainder of his Piston Cup season. Vince and Sonny later challenge Fletcher, El Guapo, and McQueen to a race in Tailfin Pass. In the cutscene for Chick's Challenge, it is revealed that the Queens gang has an alliance with Chick Hicks, and Vince then competes in a race against Lightning, Chick, Sonny and Barry. He later appears as an opponent in Tailfin Pass GP, the second race of the "Radiator Springs Grand Prix" series. In the cutscene for Ornament Valley GP, the third race of the series, Vince is interviewed by Darrell Cartrip in which he nervously stutters and stumbles, after happily saying hello to his mother, who is supposedly watching the television station that the interview is being aired on.
Vince can also be found driving around Ornament Valley while Lightning is exploring, saying hello to Lightning whenever the two see each other. Although he appears in Tailfin Pass Circuit and Tailfin Pass GP in story mode, he will not appear in arcade mode.
