"Dusty and his brother Rusty like to help out their fellow rusty cars almost as much as they like telling jokes. And that's why they invented Rust-eze Medicated Bumper Ointment. Be it the distinguished browning around the wheel well or the bumper that's completely falling off, Rusty and Dusty are there with a can of Rust-eze to fit it, or at least ease the burning, itching, and soreness that plagues so many cars."
- Dusty is modeled as a 1965 Dodge A100 Van.
- Dusty's license plate reads "EZE". When combined with his brother's, the result is RUSTEZE.
- In Cars 3 Dusty notably speaks more then his brother Rusty due to Tom Magliozzi’s death in 2014 while Ray Magliozzi reprised his role despite his retirement in 2012.
