A Mark 4 Golf on . . . Abbey Road in London! It's actually heading toward the famous studio, from a few blocks up.

It's a Jeep-like military vehicle built for the Wehrmacht in World War II. It served the German army in different campaigns and its aircooled engine withstood the hot Sahara climate and cold Russian winters. Called the Kubelwagen (bucket car), it was made as the Type 181 vehicle in Mexico and used by local Mexican police. Off-road vehicle fans got Volkswagen of America to import it from Mexico, and it was available here in the 1973 and the 1974 model years. It was called the "Thing" because it looked like something you couldn't name! It had no padding and no lap restraint belts, but it did have removable doors. The picture you found, Marlene, was of a modified, hot-rodded "Thing."

Here's a picture of a Type 181 "Thing" convertible in stock form. Standard Things had removable hardtops.

How about this one?


Ron Patrick's Jet Powered VW Bug With A Navy surplus T58-8F engine

What can you do with a GE Model T58-8F helicopter turboshaft engine, converted to jet? With Ron Patrick’s custom VW Beetle you can have lots and lots of dangerous fun exploiting all 1350 horsepower. This monster is powered by two engines (original up front, jet in back) and is perfectly street legal since you’re only using the gasoline powered engine in normal driving conditions. But if you’re feeling adventurous, fire up the jet engine - which spins up to 26,000 rpm/13,000 rpm idle - and watch the afterburner come to life. More after the jump.

“The car was built because I wanted the wildest street-legal ride possible. With this project, I was able to use my engineering skills (I have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University) to design the car without the distraction of how other people have done it in the past - because no one has.”
