Sally Carrera, Flo, Lizzie, etc.

I can't recall a conversation between two female cars because I haven't watched this movie recently, but it may exist.

Thorny disagreed with the rating and said:
Flo and Sally talk to each other several times. During Sally's speech in the courthouse, she asks Flo what she sells at her station. Later, Flo asks and Sally confirms that they see customers coming into town.

It's not much, but it does pass all three tests.

Hayley disagreed with the rating and said:
This movie definitely passes all three tests. From IMDb's quotes page:

Sally: Flo! What do you have at your store?
Flo: I have gas! Lots of gas!

It's not much of a conversation, but it's there, and it's not about men. Or at least, not about "male" cars.
