Me too. And get it custom painted with some sort of tropical vibe design.

Wasn't my car but when I was a kid in the mid 70's the high school aged kid that lived across the street had a Volkswagen 'Thing'.

I thought it was the coolest car at the time (except perhaps for the equally cool AMC Gremlins that were everywhere). His was painted gray and had a Maltese cross painted on the door so it looked like a ww2 German staff car.
It has always been a goal to own a Type 181! Someday, I will get there...

I actually saw one this weekend in orange at our local Cars & Coffee and was reminded of how super cool they are! As I've had two yellow vehicles already, I think I would lean toward owning one in orange as well.

I could see you driving that!
