Wheel block

I think it's time to clear things out. On Ebay I often see those unique VW 181 wheel blocks for sale. And often those are not VW 181 wheel blocks but Iltis/Bombardier blocks. So a picture of both: on the top a wrong one, in the bottom picture correct VW 181 blocks. These have a VW logo stamped in and a parts number that starts with 181... wielblok

... Tintin. If Hergé would have known the 181 back then, he would have used it in his comics! Great art job, Michel!decoration

This poor man couldn't afford a 'safari' (or his wife didn't let him buy one) so he painted it on his little bus. 181 bus
