You might not remember the Thing. It's "real" name was the VW 181 and it was sold in the United States for just a few years in the '70s. Designed as a two-wheel-drive off-roader it looks similar to the Kubelwagen German soldiers drove during World War II.
It's always surprising to find a cheap, disposable car like this in such apparently good shape after all this time. It's like coming across a 40-year-old Dixie Cup that still holds water.
The 575-hp Shelby Raptor has monster performance and rugged off-road capability, making it a pick-up truck for the not-so-faint-of-heart.
