As a reminder, the short takes place during a Founders Day celebration on the streets of Radiator Springs.
A “leisurely drive” planned in honor of Radiator Springs’ town founder, Stanley, turns precarious as Baja pros descend on the town and challenge Lightning McQueen to an off-road race. Meanwhile, the townsfolk, led by a Stanley-costumed Mater, enjoy the planned “leisurely drive” to retrace Stanley’s original frontier route. Thinking they’re on the same course, a wrong turn sends McQueen and the Baja pros on a treacherously wild bid for survival. The misunderstanding leaves the racing professionals in awe of the “legend” of Stanley: the Original Off-Road Racer.
CAST OF CHARACTERS & SOME NEW PAINTWith any short featuring the fun-loving Mater, you can expect a lot of "costume changes" for his character, but it also seems that Radiator Springs 500½ will find a few more of our favorite characters in new paint as well. It seems that Luigi and Guido have a slight green tint while Sheriff has a really cool paint job showcasing a white hood and new enlarged sheriff star (as well as a re-positioning of his search lights...now mounted above his headlights instead of his roof).

DIE CAST CHARACTERS
While we can't be 100% certain that any of the final die cast cars will in fact look exactly like the images below, the folks at Take Five a Day posted these images of the toys a few months ago and I can't wait to get a closer look when they hit store shelves (no word on a release date yet)." -Pixar Post
