Thing Gallery

Udo's 1975 Thing

The purchase price for this car was $3,205.00 in 1973. People now stop me in parking lots and have no problem when I give them a price of $6,500.00, and that for a car which is over 30 years old. However I would not sell it. I cannot listen to the radio while driving, the Erberspächer gasoline heater is outright dangerous, (a yearly state inspection in required in Germany) and nobody here knows how to repair it. I called the manufacturer and the young fellow there did not know what I was talking about. Now the heater is only decoration since it is not needed in sunny South Carolina. The car was carefully restored and even the dent on the fender, inside the car, on the driver's side, was fixed. I found out later that this is standard and is intended to allow space for a pedal if the diver sits on the right hand side in counties as UK or Australia.
