Classic VW BuGs Presents The Volkswagen Thing Is Slow, Old, Unsafe… and Amazing

The Volkswagen Thing is one of those military vehicles that somehow made it into production, and it shows.

The Thing was manufactured in many countries under different names, but in Germany it was known as the Type 181. It shared some of its mechanics with the Type 1 (the Beetle) and the Type 2 (Bus), but unlike the other two, it was originally developed for the German army, and it’s the direct descendant of the Kübelwagen.
