The road used for the race scene between Horace and Herbie is called Golden State Highway. Up until 1968, it was part of the historic Highway 99 until the highway was retired and mostly flooded over by a dam and reservoir leaving only the small section seen in the movie. It is also worth mentioning that this was one of the roads taken by James Dean on the day he was killed. This road. located just north of Burbank off Interstate 5, is commonly used in Hollywood movies. See more »
When Herbie and Horace "trade paint" both cars dent their fenders up and Herbies looses a hubcap, but in the next shot both cars are fine. See more »
[Talking about Herbie]
Well he uh... He becomes like his owner, and helps them get what they need.
[Turns attention towards Hank]
It wasn't Herbie that whipped out to that secluded spot, locked the doors and all that, it was you, trying to get me alone!
Me? No... It was the car...
Herbie did that to me too. It's how I met my wife.

I didn't see this feature when it originally aired. I caught it on television recently and loved it. If you like the classic beetle, you'll enjoy watching Herbie again. What's not to love about a Bug? They're so darn CUTE! It gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling to see Dean Jones, he helped bring the movie home for me. It's nice that he tied this movie to the first. The story was interesting, the way it explained how Herbie came about. Also, the creation of Horris, the Evil bug, and where his bad spirit came from. Sure it's corny, but so much is too serious now a days. I had some good laughs, a tear when it was appropriate, and a good feeling movie to add to my collection.
