Classic Car Overview

This is one of the best restored Things in the country. These are so desirable and for many good reasons. The funnest car you can imagine driving. Going down the road with top down, doors off, windshield folded is so exhilarating. Perfect car for any type of vacation home or the beach. Very capable of off road. They are so easy to drive and maintain. Fits 5 passengers plus their belongings or the rear seats fold flat for plenty of cargo space. Truly a people pleaser, you will get more smiles and waves then with any other car. Kids especially love going for a ride. Ive driven everything from the Batmobile to a Hemi Cuda and nothing is as fun as the Thing! Its about time that somebody restored one to this level.
