Beetle-Mania Revisited

One of the highlights of the R2k v6 car show last weekend was to attend an advanced premiere of Disney’s new movie Herbie: Fully Loaded at the Fiesta Drive-In in Carlsbad, NM. Disney and Volkswagen were on-hand to arrange a recreation of a classic photo that was used in the original Herbie advertisement.

Caliente was fortunate enough to be part of this photo shoot. The photo shoot is supposed to be used in the trailers of the new movie and will also be released on the DVD. VW has posted both the new and original photos on their website. Caliente is located on the 3rd row up from the bottom in between a yellow and blue (with a ski rack) new beetle. Herbie and his girlfriend Sally are located on the bottom row.

Caliente is available for autographs upon requests!
