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.
Director Angela Robinson said in the commentary that she purposely left hidden crew equipment and cheap camera tricks in the film to give Herbie fans something to look for that was fun, and also just to simply aggravate her editor, who practically begged her to fix the problems before the film was released.
"Please take care of Herbie. Whatever your problems, he will help you find the answer." Great, a fortune cookie on wheels.
When Maggie is taking Trip's stock car for a spin, Trip checks Herbie out. In one shot, they used street racing Herbie, in the shot where Herbie pulls a silly face on Trip, they used NASCAR Herbie, the next time we see Herbie, hes street racing Herbie again.
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.
