Carole also angrily confronts Jim that he didn't care about Herbie and that he wasn't winning any of the races he participated in.
Jim, angered by the wrecking, starts to damage Herbie with a shovel.
Tennessee tries to stop Jim and says that Herbie was jealous and Jim agrees because he gets the credit for winning races, and the damaging ends due to Jim's remark.
That evening, Carole comes to Jim's house to help Tennessee repair Herbie.
Carole then hears the whole truth about Herbie having a mind of his own and had a great speed for winning races instead of Jim.
Herbie pulls Jim back to safety, but then is impounded by the San Francisco Police Department.
