Since almost all the characters in Cars are based on real-life car designs, you're bound to see one in real life sooner or later. So, which ones have you seen?
I'll start: Tex- Although most people seem to list him as a Cadillac DeVille, he bears more than a striking resemblance to a 1989 Chevy Caprice Classic, which my dad used to own. Minny- Looks sort of like our Chrysler Grand Voyager. Same paintjob and all. Van- Quite a few boxy minivans driving around here... Sally- One of our neighbors owns a 911, which I occasionally glimpse if he has his garage open. The bugs- Another neighbor owns a yellow classic Beetle, which as far as I can tell is in very good condition. Mack- A few days after first watching the movie, we passed by an industrial area on the way to the beach and saw him there.
Also, I got to see Michael Schumacher race in person at the 2006 Bahrain Grand Prix, although that race belonged to Alonso.

Sally (I happen to live near a Porsche dealership. Lucky old me)
Mia/Tia (Mazda MX5s, as they're known in good old blighty, in a variety of different colours)
Fillmore (Nothing with any crazy paint schemes, but I did once see a guy who would have been a dead ringer for a humanized version of him a while back. Do I get any extra points for going off course there?)
Minny and Van (plenty of people carriers in my neck of the woods - and also a strange amount of pick up trucks as well. This ain't America, ferchrissakes!)

I see a Luigi nearly everyday, and they guy who got is does not live far away from our house. There are about 5 or 6 in the town BUT these are not Fiat 500s most of them are "Puch 500s", Puch is an Austrian manufacturer who bought the license from Fiat and used (just) the car body on this model, the convertible version was the most popular one, the model is also called "Puch Wagen" and is a total cult here. I also see many VW beetles, Fillmore buses and Sally Carreras around oh and I also saw one Michael Schumacher Ferrari F430 a few weeks ago on the highway and one in Italy when we were there for vacation.
Oh and because you mentioned it, just two weeks ago we saw a Buick Regal at the parking place at our local mall. It had a crossed out license-plate from Indiana and above it a blue Austrian one (the blue ones are limited in use) AND it snowed, THAT looked soo wrong. *LOL* Like a colourful parrot at the Himalayas... You really rarely see any American brand cars (except Ford) around here, and if there are some they are a real eye-catcher for everybody.
-I've seen plenty of Sally's (someone owns and drives a Carerra to my school) -A 70's version of Fillmore -Close resemblences to Sarge and Sheriff -I saw a Mack on the Interstate once -When I went to a car show in September, I saw a Doc, Ramone (not sure if it had hydrolics though), Lizzie, and a Buick Regal. -I've seen plenty of racecars as well (people are NASCAR crazy where I live XD)
I saw a Mack on the highway the other day, my step mom owns like two jeeps so yeah I see Sarge everyday, my uncle has a Buick Regal it's black I think it kinda looks like Chick, ooh and my friend has a volkswagon van her dad gave her, it's got a peace sign on it like Fillmore
