Horace Goes Hollywood – and meets his Maker! Who’s Herbie?

Yeah I know, I am trying to catch up, so maybe these are out of order!
Brian all by himself took his screen used HORACE the hate bug to Sunset Gower (my old studio!) to reunite Horace with the original FX guys who built him!

Of course Horace had to be signed (we star car guys like to have the stars of the shows, and the ACTUAL hands on builders of the cars)


So why is this on the Star Car Central.com blog? Well it’s cool, and there were SORT of 2 star cars represented that day, as these guys were also working on a certain SHOE PHONE for Sue and her Get smart car!

While at home, Brian’s ROBO-Herbie was feeling like ending it all, as Brian was spending so much time with Horace.

Brian’s actions made Herbie feel like half a car….

OK, now back to our regularly scheduled programming…….

    to answer your question… The half a car in your blog is from Disney
    World in Florida.

    The original cut in half car the Horace guys built is now used in a
    stunt show in Disneyland Paris, and the imagineers in Florida made a
    copy. I sent it to Sue to show the FX guys, thought they might enjoy
    seeing a ‘replica’ of their work being used at the parks!

    To see Horace the hate bug in action, you need to buy or rent “The Love Bug” with BRUCE CAMBELL made in 1997. It was a TV movie, and wrapped up the whole love bug story line bringing back Dean Jones as the original owner, and explaining why Herbie was “alive.” The last Herbie movie before “Herbie, fully loaded”
    This is the IMDB listing for the movie, it’s available on Amazon.
