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

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!
1973 VW Thing for sale
Great looking VW Thing! California car, originally from the Southern
California desert. Super solid and rust free body. No signs of bondo or
rust. This VW Thing under went a recent, nice quality cosmetic restoration.
The paint is fresh and looks terrific! The interior was also redone and
looks fantastic. The Thing also has a nice, new top. The attention to
detail is obvious. Bumpers, glass and rubber all look very nice. In
addition, it starts; runs and drives very nicely with good compression
(115-115-110-115); new Exhaust system,
wheels, tires and more. The original gas heater is installed but not
connected. Our local VW shop has gone through the car thoroughly to assure

inspection in Sonoma, California.

VW Thing crossing the Mojave River in Afton Canyon
On January 18, 2009, Michael, John and I went offroading around Afton
Canyon. Here, I finally got up enough nerve to try the river crossing that
had been thwarting me for so long. I made it through with no problems at
all. I'm sure now that I could ford even deeper waters.
