VW type 82 Kübelwagen

VW type 82 "Kübelwagen"

OK, not exactly the correct subject matter or place to share this but however, I thought it such a surprise I took a few photographs to show!

Recently I've been working on one of my old Vespa's and had some trouble with fuel starvation, stripped down the carburetor and replaced some parts.  Then I thought before I put it back together I'll nip up to my ex-1 Para mates place at South West VW Restoration and use his airline to blow out any debris in the carburetor.........to my surprise this is what I found!!

Imagine popping down the shops in this!!

  Nice looking Kubel Tug! I have fond memories of my oldest Son who is 22 at about 4 years old riding in a similar Kubel to the drive through at McDonalds and with him wearing a German helmet! That helmet, though a refurbished original still sits next to me as I type this. We also used to hit the lake in a Schwimmwagen for a nice day of "schwimming"    Scott

Very nice.
Some will die in hot pursuit and fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain.....
