MEET THE FAMOUS HERBIE CAR FROM THE “FULLY LOADED” MOVIE

by Mechanics Direct May 1, 2018



If you are searching for an honest and thorough auto repair shop, look no further than Mechanics Direct. Our auto mechanics are experienced, educated, and equipped with the latest and greatest tools and technology. Maybe their motivation for excellence is spurred by the famous car in our auto repair shop showroom. You may have noticed the Herbie Car, but do you know the story behind this famous car?

This Herbie car which starred in the 2005 “Fully Loaded” movie, is a 1962 Beetle with a 1600 engine, complete with the actors’ signatures on the glove box including Lindsay Lohan. However, there is more to it than what meets the eye. In fact, this Herbie was one of the two surviving cars from shooting all the scenes. This movie, a box office success, chronicles the union of a girl with a broken-down car and their unlikely domination at the racetrack.

Before reaching our auto repair shop in Lowell, this Herbie car was restored in Hollywood with a rebuilt engine and beefed-up suspension. With these added features, the Herbie car went on to star in the movie, performing stunts and all. Like the restoration of Herbie, our auto mechanics can do the same for your car. Tell us your goal, whether that is heading off to the racetrack like Herbie and Maggie did in the movie or entering in a car show, and our team will do our best to turn your dreams into reality.

If you have any questions about the Herbie Car or performance enhancement on your car, call the auto mechanics at Mechanics Direct or schedule your appointment online. Our auto repair shop is located at 1375 Middlesex St. in Lowell, MA 01851.
