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!

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
it's reliable, safe and ready for you to enjoy!
Feel free to call Donn at 707-332-8331 any time. The car is available for
inspection in Sonoma, California.
Thank you for visiting!

1974 Volkswagen Thing - Rare and Nicely Restored VW Type 181 Trekker
I thought you'd like a look at this very collectible 1974 VW Thing. They
have done an excellent job on the restoration on this one. It's nicely
painted, both inside and out, and it has all new upholstery as well. It's
riding on the painted steel wheels, with caps and rings. I hope you find it
interesting, thanks for taking a look!

Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Kit, Organ, EP
With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011
