The Love Bug

Trivia: Dean Jones has two roles in this movie. Not only does he play Jim Douglas, he is also the bearded hippie who speaks to Carole (Michele Lee) when she is trapped in Herbie at the drive-in restaurant.

Trivia: The opening scene of the demolition derby cars is footage from the 1966 film "Fireball 500."

Plot hole: When Jim is shown what he has to pay for the damages Herbie did to Mr. Wu's shop he says he has no money. First off if he had no money how in the world was he able to put down any money on the red sports car he had just purchased that night? Secondly, what happened to the prize money from all the races he was winning from the previous few months?
