"Show us the bolt!"
—Houser exclaiming to Lightning McQueen to show him his bolt sticker

Houser Boon is a minor character in Cars. He is a press pack photographer. He's used to asking the racing stars to pose for shots, something which the likes of Lightning McQueen are more than happy to do.


"Houser Boon was the first photographer to coin the now-famous phrase "Show us the bolt!" He called it out last season at a press event to Lightning McQueen who actually turned right towards him and flashed his million-dollar grille. It was indeed a proud moment for Mr. Boon -- if he'd had the forethought to trademark the phrase, he could have retired twenty years early."[1]

Houser Boon is at the Motor Speedway of the South among several other cameramen to take photos of McQueen's bolt sticker.


  • According to Car Finder, he is a Crown Celesta.
