    This still doesn't explain the sign. If we assume this statement is correct (which I'm not arguing that it isn't) there would have been no need to change the sign. The sign would have originally said 12, Lightning would have moved in to make it 13, and then Doc would have died to make it 12 again. There would be no need to have the "2" plaque covering over whatever number on the sign.

    If Otis is a resident of Radiator Springs, then that messes the count up even more! It should be 13 or 14 depending on whether you think Doc should be in the count.

    Maybe they painted a "3" on the sign after Lightning moved in, but decided that re-painting the number once again after Doc died would look too sloppy -- hence, affixing a number "2" over the painted "3," rather than just re-painting a "2"?

    Besides, the issue of the true population of Radiator Springs after Lightning moves there isn't really one that can be definitively answered. At the end of the first movie, you see many, many cars buzzing around the revitalized Radiator Springs. Granted, many of them are likely tourists, but there are also some -- like Mia and Tia, who are shown working at Flo's -- that presumably would have had to take up residency in town for their employment.

    That's not even considering something like the Wheel Well Motel, which looks like it's just outside Radiator Springs; is it within the town boundaries, and do the employees for the motel live in town? After all, it doesn't really look like there's anywhere else to live for miles around.

    I think the most likely explanation is that whoever designed the sign was hoping that guests wouldn't scrutinize it that closely, especially with the Doc issue -- that guests would look at the number only long enough to think, "Hey, they upped it by one because Lightning moved there." (And, also, that "13" is kind of an ominous number when not used in an appropriate context, so they didn't see any reason to use it rather than "12.")

    I think it went from 12 to 13 when Lightning moved in at the end of Cars 1 when Doc was still alive.

    I think in Cars land, he is either still alive, or has died but the sign was not reverted back.

    Space mountain's space station on the ceiling has a 77 and a 05 on it... for the years it was added and refurbed.... MAYBE the 12 is more for the year it opened and less for accurate population .. Maybe? hm

    John Lasseter was born on January 12th, might be his favorite number.

    Also at one time Radiator Springs was a booming town until the interstate bypassed it so by that theory the sign should have 20, 30, 50, 100 or whatever the largest count. Then that should be crossed off with the new counts. You can argue that they changed the sign completely, but why would you if the town was dieing.

    Also Mac moved to Radiator Springs with Lightening so there is another mistake.

    What about the giant thresher (who may not have a name)? He owns a dairy farm in RS right?

    So, 14?

    Cars Land is set to a time period between Cars 1 and Cars 2. At least that is what was announced at the D23 Expo.

    Out of curiosity, where is this coming from? I was under the impression that the whole land was set between the two films... It seems rather odd that they would consciously decide to set the land at two different times.

    Is Frank not supposed to be the farmer?

    Didn't they show the sign at some point in the movie? What was the number there?

    I believe that on the Disney Parks Blog, it said that the entire land was between Cars and Cars 2. I can't find it but I know it was there. So Doc would still be alive since he was in RSR. And Lizzie is also in RSR so the might have just wanted to pay tribute to the year Cars Land opened, 2012.
