Herbie: Fully Loaded is a 2005 American comedy movie directed by Angela Robinson and starring Lindsay Lohan, Michael Keaton, and Cheryl Hines. The movie follows the story of Maggie Peyton (Lindsay Lohan) a young woman with a passion for racing cars. She is given the opportunity to drive a refurbished 1963 Volkswagen Beetle, which turns out to be Herbie, a car with a mind of its own. Together, they set out to win the championship race against the reigning champion, Trip Murphy (Matt Dillon).

Maggie Peyton is the daughter of a retired race car driver, Ray Peyton Sr. (Michael Keaton), who now runs a local car dealership. Herbie, who was bought by Ray Peyton Jr. in a junkyard, is given to Maggie as a graduation gift to drive in the NASCAR series. Initially, Maggie is hesitant to drive Herbie due to his rusty and old exterior, but eventually warms up to the car after discovering that it has a mind of its own and can drive itself.

As Maggie trains with Herbie, she discovers that the car is capable of doing things that ordinary cars cannot. For instance, Herbie has the ability to drive upside down and climb walls, which ultimately helps Maggie and Herbie win many races. Maggie also discovers that Herbie has a personality of his own and that he responds to her emotions and thoughts.

As Maggie and Herbie participate in more races, their driving skills and synchronicity improve. However, Trip Murphy, the reigning champion in the NASCAR series, sees Herbie's skills as cheating and becomes resentful towards Maggie and Herbie. He tries to sabotage them in every race they participate in to keep his title as the champion. Still, Maggie never gives up, and she and Herbie work together to overcome all the obstacles that come their way.

Throughout the movie, romance blossoms between Maggie and Kevin (Justin Long), a mechanic who works at Ray Peyton's dealership. They share a love for racing and end up working together, making Maggie's racing experience more enjoyable. They also participated in races together and became close friends.

As the championship race approaches, Maggie and Herbie work tirelessly to prepare for the race. However, Trip Murphy's attempts to sabotage her car continue, and Maggie's confidence is shaken. She begins to doubt her ability to win the championship race, but with the help of her family, friends, and Herbie, she regains her confidence and gets back in the game.

The championship race is intense, and both Trip Murphy and Maggie are neck to neck throughout the race. Herbie's abilities, along with Maggie's racing skills, lead them to the finish line and ultimately win the championship against Trip Murphy.
