Herbie 53 Sticking Out of Wall

There are two halves of Herbie 53 (the Love Bug car) sticking out of a white fence wall outside a junkyard.

[William Long, 04/25/2022]

For nearly a decade there was only one half of Herbie. Then, within the past year, a second half appeared.

VW Bug Fence

A VW bug was cut in half and placed entering the fence on one side and exiting the fence on a different side. It's located on the main road, at Phillips Enterprises.

[Beth Miller, 04/27/2020]

The white Volkswagen Beetle stands on a roadbed of cinderblocks and has the number 53 on it. It's Herbie the Love Bug!
