Do you or someone you know have a VW Thing or other unique cars youíve been meaning to fix up but just never got around to?
Something thatís buried in your backyard collecting dust?
A car that youíve had since childhood and just canít part with?

We're looking for people in GA, NC, SC, AL, or TN with unique cars and
interesting stories for a new TV show where we put in the work to get
these cars back on the road. We'll hear your story, then take your car
and fix it up for you for a fraction of what it would usually cost.

If you think you and your car fit the bill, send us a brief background
story of your car and situation.

Thank You

I bet your show would benefit from a Hawaiian setting! Think about it! I have a 73 Thing that is a daily driver and certainly could use an overhaul. Mahalo!

Ha, you guys are funny. I wish we could go to Hawaii, maybe down the road! I'll push for it Smile
For now we're looking to stay in the mentioned states. But honestly, if something awesome comes up, you never know.

Just sent you an email about my cousin, in Georgia, who has a 61 Ghia Vert and a VW Thing. He runs a ministry called Bugs4Christ where he mentors teens and young adults while restoring old VW's. He's given away 10+ in the last eight years to people in need, and any old one he gets he passes on to one of the teens, young adults, or volunteers that work with Bugs4Christ.

The only two he's kept are the Ghia and the Thing, and he never gets around to building them because he's always working on other's cars and needs.

The cars would make a good project, and more so I believe his story would make a good one for the show. Please, I'd love to talk to someone in more detail, because he's probably the most unselfish derserving person I know.

Well if you can't come to paradise and show case my "Thing", my next vote would be for Bugs4Christ. That's a really cool story. But .... if you change your mind we do have a lot of Aloha here Laughing
