This painting is a simple rendition of the classic 1974 VW Thing, also known as the Type 181. Volkswagen didn’t come up with a fancy name for this awesome car, but it is pretty awesome to see someone driving it and be able to yell out “Hey, nice Thing!” (true story!)

This is a made-to-order piece of art (not a computer print-out), and it can be customized at my Etsy shop, BlueJayBay, by selecting a color scheme of your choice. In addition, I can add words to the painting if you would like to further personalize the artwork. The 1974 Thing came in four factory paint colors: Sunshine Yellow (pictured), Pumpkin Orange, Avocado Green, and Blizzard White. The Thing also looks cool in a Kelly Green custom paint job!
