Someone in the Netherlands made a Schwimmwagen monster out of a 181... not my cup of tea.
Take a stock military 181, add some hight, BRM's and BS Mudmax... et voilà! That car is always welcome in my garage.
Shown below is the poster of a French VW aircooled meeting. Instead of the more common bug/bus use, they have chosen to picture a bug and 181. Ain't that nice of them? We can read the word 'cox'. This is an abbreviation of the French word 'coccinelle', which translated as ladybug in English. Beetle (UK), bug (US), käfer (D), cox (F)... insects all the way! So VW maniacs, don't be offended when a frenchman makes a remark of your cox (unless you don't have a vw beetle).
For some reason black hardtops are rare. But don't they look nicer than those white ones?
I do have a soft spot for light blue 181s... they are so rare.
