This is a tube frame buggy that happens to wear a VW Thing body. We think it's awesome. $29K isn't cheap, but the work looks great and this should be a lot of fun if you have a place to properly use it. Interestingly, it's registered as a '74 Thing and thus is street legal and never needs smog.

Yes, there is a Thing body here. The rest is all custom and damn cool.
Rear keeps the cool VW taillights.
But what was once the engine compartment now houses the fuel cell.
And, yes, the engine is up front, where it shouldn't be.
Interior, such as it is, is functional only.
This angle is too cool not to include!
