1979 Volkswagen Transporter "Little Miss Sunshine"

The Vault presented by Hagerty®

This was driven in Little Miss Sunshine, the movie from 2006. It was almost as much a character as any of the actors in the movie and exemplifies that vehicles like it and like Herbie the Lovebug and some others tend to have their own personalities. And in fact, a lot of people even today tend to assign their cars human characteristics. We give them names, and we do other things to them because it’s almost like they’re living, breathing beings that we interact with.
