This is my 1973 Thing I bought in Randleman North Carolina off of thesamba.com. I flew up there and drove it back to Jacksonville Florida. Broke down in Gaston, South Carolina. Got it fixed in Lexington, South Carolina and drove home. What fun I had driving home in my Thing!

Here are my little puppy's Bear Bear and Sunshine
