Maggie Peyton, the new owner of Herbie, Number 53, the free-wheelin' Volkswagen bug with a mind of its own, puts the car through its paces on the road to becoming a NASCAR competitor.
When Trip Murphy (Matt Dillon) first appears, he just signed a race fan's forehead "Tex". Dillon starred in Tex (1982). (Actually, if you pay attention to detail, his signature says, "Trip".)
Would you really rather be reporting the stories instead of being them?
At the beginning of the film, when the junkyard men were trying to remove Herbie from the truck, Herbie sprays oil on the foot of the junkyard owner from the front hood. The oil pan, like the engine, are in the rear of the older model VW Beetles, not under the front hood.
The opening credits is a tribute to Herbie's career, with clips from all his previous movie, excluding to his "Wonderful World of Disney" film, leading up to where he is now in the events of the film.
