Please visit for additional photos, information and a video. "It can be anything" Volkswagen proclaimed when announcing the VW Thing. They weren't lying! It's an SUV, a car, a beach cruiser, and even drives like a go cart! This cool VW Thing has a full soft top with removable top halves for the doors that match. The windows slide open for nice ventilation and close to keep the weather out. Heading to the beach? The soft top folds down and the windows slide right out and store in vinyl bags in the trunk. Or, remove the soft top completely if you prefer. You don't have to worry about anyone getting into the trunk, as it has a hole on the release where a small lock can be placed for added security. The color makes this a perfect fun in the sun cruiser and looks like it should be in the Caribbean! The Light turquoise mimics the water while the bumpers and soft top match the sand. Inside you see black vinyl bucket seats with a fold down rear seat when more storage room is needed. The floormats are woven grass and really fit the vibe of this VW. Under the hood is an AH code 1,600 CC 4-cylinder engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. There is also a little surprise for your garage in the trunk. A custom-made CNC cut metal VW Thing sign! How cool is that? All about stance? This Thing has you covered there too. It has a great stance and EMPI Raider 17" wheels wrapped in radial tires really fit the wheel wells nicely. These cars are a lot of fun, easy to work on and are sure to draw attention wherever you go.
