VW The Thing - yellow Description

What is the thing? Well its not quite a car, its not a van, and its not a truck. It is the Thing!  Volkswagen might make sober Golfs and Jettas now, but in the 1960s and 1970s the German brand was home to cars that exemplified counter-culture. Classic Beetles, funky buses, and boxy Vanagons are to this day viewed through this lens, but what about the stubby VW Thing? Also known as the Type 181, this bare-bones off-roader is actually experiencing a surge of interest amidst the market’s overall boom for vintage SUVs like Jeeps, Land Rovers, Ford Broncos, and Toyota Land Cruisers.
The Type 181 was born in 1969 when the West German military revisited the boxy, open-top theme last seen in the World War II-era Type 82 Kübelwagen. The idea came from the military’s need for cheap, reliable, and durable transport, during a time where many European countries were awaiting international development of the (ultimately abandoned) Europa Jeep 4×4 project. Using the Beetle Type 1 driveline and Transporter Type 2 suspension, the Type 181 formula proved sound.

What is the thing? its a good time had by all. Whether driving around Old town, or kicking back on an excursion with friends, the Thing is a bit of Nostalgic fun from times gone by. This thing however has been modernized with a suped up radio and sound system so you can bring the tunes wherever you go.
