Herbie: Fully Loaded

Question: Why was the name Max used for the helmet? Does it connect to one of the other 6 movies?

New this month Answer: Yes the third movie Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo there is a character in the movie named Max.

Question: How is Herbie able to come to life on his own? I haven't seen the other movies.

Chosen answer: It is explained in the 1997 version of "the love bug". When a scientist was building Herbie, a picture of the scientist's deceased wife who he loved very much fell into the container of molten metal. This accidental action caused Herbie to have love for any owner he has.

Question: Who is Max exactly? Does he (she?) have any significance in the movie at all?

Chosen answer: Max is Lindsay Lohan - she doesn't want her dad to know she is racing so when she first has on the racing suit and helmet she says she is Max.

Question: Why does Herbie have the number 53? Is there a special reason for this number?

Chosen answer: I found this through a short Google search. On the website http://local.aaca.org/junior/starcars/herbie.htm Bill Walsh, producer of "The Love Bug" came up with the number 53 from Los Angeles Dodgers baseball player Don Drysdale's uniform. He chose the red, white, and blue racing stripes for a patriotic theme.

Mistakes

Look at the dirt when Herbie backs away from the nose of the newer Beetle, between the races out in the desert. Although Herbie drove straight up to the newer Beetle, tire marks can be seen where the crew moved the car back and forth to get him lined up.
