Sal Machiani is a character in Cars 2.
Sal is about as gentle and old-world as they come. A busy little bee, he scoots around, up the steep hills of the Tuscan town of Carsoli, Italy, with his sweet-smelling exhaust trailing behind. More than making up for his small size by being an ape-of-all-trades, Sal can be found hard at work on any given day. But most evenings he's at the local cafe, shipping regional olio with his amici, and bidding passing microcars, "Buona sera".
