Volkswagon Thing part 1
Copied from Wikipedia-The Volkswagen Type 181 "Kurierwagen", popularly known in the United Kingdom as the Trekker, in the United States as the Thing, and in Mexico as the Safari, was a small military vehicle produced by Volkswagen from 1969 to 1983, although civilian sales stopped in 1980. It was based in part on Volkswagen's Type 1 (Beetle), and was a continuation and improvement over the Kübelwagen, which had been used by the German military during World War II. The name Kübelwagen is an abbreviation of Kübelsitzwagen, meaning "bucket-seat car". At the time, the term was coined to refer to a whole category of off-roaders with extra-deep bucket seats to make up for the lack of doors. MARSHALL MOTOART has put a spin on the Thing and plans to use it in the summer to carry Tubes to the river to go tubing!
Featured in the July 2010 issue of eurotuner magazine, this air-cooled VW Buggy is the personal project of Derek Jenkins. He was formerly the Chief US Designer for VW but has since moved to Mazda. His buggy is an awesome mix of traditional air-cooled style with modern materials and aesthetics. This is possibly the best buggy we've ever seen, so don't miss the full feature in eurotuner magazine (on sale 15 June 2010) and at eurotuner.com
