These Things 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. Truly a people pleaser, you will get more
smiles and waves then with any other car. Kids especially love
going for a ride. I've driven everything from the Batmobile to a
Hemi Cuda and nothing is as fun as the Thing!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure
your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do
a walk around video that explains the car's condition in
**These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a
particular car make an appointment with a salesman to see that car.
Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the
showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded and you
will be given a 1 year membership.
