1963 Volkswagen Beetle "Herbie"
Third Floor- History
In Walt Disney Pictures’ Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005), the endearing Volkswagen that debuted in the 1969 movie The Love Bug returns, transformed into a NASCAR contender. One of several built for the film, this Herbie is equipped with a 200 horsepower engine that can propel it to a remarkable 138 miles per hour, and was the car driven by Lindsay Lohan as Maggie Peyton in the racing sequences. Like previous Herbies, this Volkswagen has been endowed with thought, emotion, and a strong will, qualities that the main characters find useful in their quest for love and adventure.
