Dutch airforce

Straight from the battlefield... well, to be honest not that straight, but still a car in a decent original condition. The dual generator setup shows it was a radiocar. And it has a tag from Pon, the Dutch VW importer. dutch1dutch2dutch3dutch4

Winch it (part 2) !

As can be seen on this instruction leaflet: the winch was mounted on the rear, on the trailer hitch. For people who are searching such a winch (or the second best), this was the manufacturer: The Scott & Fetzer Company.winch

Interesting...

This flyer did catch my eye. We all know that there was a "give the car a name" contest in the UK. The winning name was 'Trekker'. I don't know how or why the car was called Thing in the US, but that's how the car is known over there. If this flyer is genuine, there was also a contest in Germany to give the car a name instead of the "type 181" designation. The winner would drive home with a new car. But apparently there was no winner? There is no specific German name for the type 181...thingpostcard3
