The VW Thing was a resurrection of a German military vehicle called the Kübelwagen, which literally translates to “bucket car”. Built on the chassis of the VW microbus with parts pulled from the Beetle’s assembly line, the Thing is a pretty basic vehicle. The only instrumentation is a speedometer/fuel gauge combo.
Theodor Geisel, writing as Dr. Seuss, created the famous ‘Cat in the Hat’ featuring “Thing 1 & Thing 2 ” in 1954 to help kids learn how to read.

MAX MUMBLES says: “The VW Thing is in the top 50 ugliest cars in history list. We think it looks pretty cool”
