This thing is not a Thing
Among my more interesting sightings was this little machine. For a moment I thought it was a Volkswagen Type 181 Kurierwagen, the military-style utility vehicle that was sold in North America as the Thing. But a closer look told me this was smaller and more detailed than the plain-sided Thing. (Interesting: A Thing appears in the background of a scene in The World’s Fastest Indian, which is based on events years before the Thing’s 1969 introduction. Given its mid-century looks, however, we can forgive the movie people for the anachronism.)
So what is this? A Soviet dune buggy-Jeep cross? Whatever. I like it.
And OK, I did take a touristy photo, too.
It's a brazilian car from the 80's, named Gurgel!! That car in Cuba is unbelievable!!
1600cc.VW engine and fiberglass body.
Congratulations for your excellent blog, and long life to Cuban Classic Cars!!
P.S: sorry, but my english is very poor!!
