    Please subscribe to our videos, this video is a tribute to Doc Hudson, one of the main characters of Cars Movie by Disney and Pixar. His license plate reads 51HHMD, which is a reference to his year and track number (51), model (Hudson Hornet) and profession (medical doctor). A racer-turned-mechanic, the character has Newman's blue eyes..The car is based on the real-life Fabulous Hudson Hornet in NASCAR competition, with Doc's racing career most closely resembling that of Herb Thomas. Newman, a racing enthusiast and former driver, drew upon his experiences for the grumpy old race car's personality. Paul Newman, who provided the voice of Doc Hudson, died from lung cancer in September 2008; Pixar decided having Doc appear in Cars 2 would be inappropriate. A conversation between McQueen and Mater indicates that Doc died before the second film. Doc's memory lives on, as the Piston Cup was renamed after him. During the Japan leg of the World Grand Prix, commentators note that Doc was widely considered one of the best dirt-track racers in the world.Thanks for watching, and please share and hit the like button, I did my best......thanks again.
