We stopped in this morning before heading back to MN and we were so excited to get a tour! Thank you for a great experience! My husband enjoyed looking at parts and I bought “extra’s”!

I've been getting parts now since October of '13 for our '74 181. The help has been outstanding! Friendly, personal, and very professional. These guys know their stuff. And the quality is amazing. Fro...m the transmission to the floor pans and all the rubber, seals, and beads between. The most impressive so far are the sliding glass side curtains we bought. When I opened the box yesterday I could not believe how great the quality was! Recommended to all and I will continue to work with this VW loving business from here on. See More

I uncovered this shop by chance and I'm happy I did. It's not often to find a shop that takes care of their customers like they are longtime friends and family. They are the experts in their niche. Th...e pride in their work shows in the quality of the products, parts and vehicles they sell. It doesn't matter if it's a small part or the entire car I highly recommend The Thing Shop. See More

Thank you and your staff for all your help with my recent purchases. Everything was just as you represented or better. All parts were packed so well there was no question about the condition of the it...ems. My Thing never looked better! Thanks again. See More

Fast and friendly service. I have spent hours on the phone with questions and they have always been great to work with! All parts are packaged nicely and most are label for ease of installation. Thank... you all very much!! See More

Got to get that Thing... there's one in Houston that I need to go and take it to Dallas. Once here I can start contacting "The Thing Shop"

Absolutely great people! Ordered grommets for a singlecab canopy and the post office has possibly lost them… These great people went above and beyond to send me a replacement order. Thank you very much.

Is it possible that Volkswagen will produce the Thing again as an electric vehicle? The author of this article thinks so...…/volkswagen-considering-return-thin…

The future of Volkswagen may look very much like its past.
