    ...leave that thing alone!



    I've always wanted a Thing, my first ride was a '69 VW Type III Squareback, always dug the old air-cooled VeeDubyas.

    Maybe one day I'll get a Thing for a weekend cruiser...

    I like that picture... I dunno why. Maybe because even though the subject is the thing... I looked at the dog with the barney first.

    I love Things.

    My brother had two of them
    both '73s one was black the other was orange.

    they are great cars, especially for the car-modding hobbiest(which is I'm sure why you have it)

    my brother's orange thing, could have probably out run a porche after all the mods he did, and it had a killer sound system to boot :D

    I'm not expert, but is yours a '74?
     
  11. I enjoy the fact that the dog is going to walk into the yard, and chew the crap out of that Barney doll. Barney Deserves it. :D

  16. Hey thanks guys.. My 74 Thing is a all stock/original. the motor is a stock 1600cc dp. I have the rollbar and soft top that went with it. I removed them because I am working on repairing the floorpans... I just sold my 65 spit window bus. My main vehicle is a 68 VW bus, It hasn't let me down yet. Air cooled Veedubs are sweet

    The dog ,,Thats Hank and his favorite toy in the whole world, Barny...He has five differant Barnies. That one he has in his mouth is the singing Barney. He doesn't rip them to peices anymore. He just likes to walk around with them in his mouth.
