The Love Bug scenes in San Francisco 1968

the last of the Victorian are buildings in San Fran I suppose, but as a horse drawn fire pumper station building it's amazing. Not a very good job at keeping the building look the same consistancy in the day and night image (it's a painting not a real building)

Buddy Hackett's car parts art from pieces of his Edsel

the first image of Herbie. Ever.

the cars in the background. Cool.

A challenge to a drag race from a hippie kid in a T bucket

Bitchin Rolls Royce

This is interesting as an example of the mid to late 60's hippe art, and the two characters below, they're in the model A, I bet there is a reason they look so damn goofy, and I believe the guy on the left side is Benny Hill


  1. Just watched Bullit again the other night, more of the same neat cars and scenery!

  2. I don't think he's Benny Hill, funny thing though, the bearded hippie is Dean Jones.

  3. Totally forgot what a fantastic movie this is - from the racing scenes to a VW driving over the Golden Gate Bridge. Love it.

  4. He was in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in 1968. He never set foot in the U.S. until 1984, so there is no way that he was in the Love Bug.

  5. The first pic of Herbie ever.....next to a 68 Cutlass, only year to split the headlights with the turn signals.
