Summer is in full swing on the west coast and the warm weather brings peoples cars out into the open. The usual suspects, classic cars, seven digits supercars and various Asian imports are out in full force. However, sometimes you find something a little weirder. Like this.
At first glance, I thought it was a VW Thing but once I got closer I realized I was wrong, it was something else entirely.
It was a Kubelwagen, a ww2 German ¨Jeep¨ of sorts. They were originally made alongside the very first Beatles and shared many parts, including the motors, with the famous type 1. Once I started looking and talking with the owner the story got a little more complicated. This car was not made in Germany and was never meant for war. It was made by a company based out of Vancouver called Intermeccanica. They make reproductions of early Porsches as well.
Intermeccanica’s bull logo was on the car in a few spots
Not exactly the luxury suite.
The owner was in a bit of a hurry so I did not get as much information as I would have liked. It is an interesting like vehicle though, you never know what you are going to find during a walk in the streets.
Thanks to the owner of this interesting vehicle for letting me take some photos and to the driver of the Mercedes that honked at me when I was taking photos of it.
