Throw Back Thursday - Utah Car Cents

Throw Back Thursday

The Volkswagen Thing

Utah Car Cents

It was 1973,  CBS had just sold the New York Yankees to a syndicate led by George Steinbrenner for $10 million.  Aerosmith released their debut album. Elvis Presley had the first worldwide telecast that was watched by more people then the Apollo moon landing and Volkswagen released a new rear engine 4-door Cabriolet.

The Thing was purchased by NATO as a military envoy vehicle and as dune buggies in mexico. The Thing quickly grew a following amongst off-roaders and car clubs alike. So much, Volkswagen has produced a few new concepts...

  1. It's finally here! In this post, we'll take a look at the history, size and interesting facts about the Volkswagen Group. The history behind the company is pretty insane. I also enjoyed making this one as it brought back keen memories of Need for Speed Porsche 2000, the game that first really got me in to cars.
