i think this one belongs to the son of one of the mechanical fitters at work, i know he has done a Herbie aswel as a GMC A team replica (which is spot on), i'm sure there were a couple more he's done aswel.

They would've gotten away with it if it wasn't for those pesky Retrobikers. ;)

The Herbie films don't hold any appeal for me; if you want a memorable 60s movie with cult small cars in it then I'm of the opinion that there's only one film that fits the bill. Hang on a minute lads, I've got a great idea....
