Herbie's 53rd Anniversary Celebration
Extravaganza - Coming up on March 31st
thru April 3rd, 2022, we are going to hold
another celebration for Herbie to celebrate
his 53rd Anniversary. Once again, we

Herbie And The Rose - Back in 2020
following Herbie's 50th Anniversary
Celebration, we decided to write a new
chapter in Herbie's life after the movie,
Herbie Fully Loaded. This is a short
story of how Herbie returned to his old life
with the great granddaughter of Jim and
Carole Douglas whom now owns Herbie.
Rose was paralyzed from the waist down in a
tragic motocross race, but together with her
best friend Brad, they go on a exciting
adventure in The Great Cross Country
Race. Check it out at

We hope you enjoy...
Herbie's 50th Anniversary - In 2019
we were blessed with the opportunity to
organize probably the greatest Herbie
gathering ever held to celebrate Herbie's 50
Year Anniversary. In March of 2019 in
Orlando Florida, over 40 Herbie's gathered
together to celebrate this very
special occasion. The
event started at the Don Gartliz Museum of
Auto Racing in Ocala Fl followed by a 3 day
celebration at Walt Disney World, The Dezer
Auto Museum in Orlando FL, Old Town USA in
Kissimmee FL, and The Lakeland VW Classic in
Lakeland FL. We were honored to have
Joaquin Garay III (Paco) and his family join
us which made the event even more special.

Jingle Bugs Rock
2013! - Well, we once again had a great
time at Jingle Bugs Rock 2009 which was held
to help raise toys for the US Marine Corps
Toys-for-Tots Christmas program. It was
held at our local weekly cruise location,
Old Town in Kissimmee Florida. Cars were
decorated for the holidays and people came
just to have fun. The cruise at the end of
the day was fantastic.

A Cute Little
Theme Song - We had a question the
other day regarding a theme song for
Herbie. Right away I thought of this one
song by Helen Fields. See what you think,
Herbie Fully Loaded
- After watching the new Herbie movie,
Herbie Fully Loaded, Herbie insisted on
having his eyes redone, so...
- In June 2005 we decided to go to
Effingham, IL to Mid America Motorworks
Funfest 2005 which turned out to be one of
the best shows we've ever attended (thanks
Mid America). Not only was Joaquin Garay
III (Paco) from Herbie Goes Bananas there
with his beautiful family, but they also had
three original Herbies from his early years
along with over a dozen replicas and two
from his latest movie Herbie Fully Loaded.
In addition, it just so happened that Mid
America arranged to have the new Batmobile
drop by for it's first unofficial showing in
the US. And guess what, Stephen and His
Herbie were allowed to cruise with the
original Herbies and the Batmobile around
the facility.... What a blast! Well, here
are most of the 700+ pictures Stephen took
while there (make sure you check out Herbies
new bright red trailer). They are in easy
to view thumbnails that make it easy (and a
lot quicker) to download. Just click on the
picture you want to see for a larger
(more VW's) and
(the Herbies and the Batmobile).
- We are sorry ole Don is no longer with
us, but at least we had the great pleasure
of meeting him in Robinsonville, MS. while
doing a show with Tim Conway (2002) to get
The Love Bug on DVD
- Just so
everyone knows, Walt Disney has re-released
The Love Bug on DVD with many hours of extra
footage and interviews from some of our
favorite stars. Of course, Stephen and His
Car Herbie was filmed on February 26, 2002
and can be found on Disk 2. We don't have
any footage here, but you can purchase your
own copy over the internet....
Cruisin The Coast
- In October (2003), we took a little ride
up to Mississippi to show Herbie during the
Annual Cruisin the Coast festivities which
is a all week car cruise with around 6000
cars and which covers approx. 50 miles of
Hwy 90 right along the beach between Ocean
Springs and Bay St. Louis. We had a ball
and ole Herb was written up in 5 papers and
also made a brief TV appearance. You'll
never guess what the newscaster said about
