1943 VW SCHWIMMWAGEN

You’ve seen it before. It’s a lovely summer day at the lake, lots of trucks with boats on trailers backing them into the water with something called a boat launch. Couple of guys in the water trying to get the boat situated without it floating away. Come on, does that sound fun? Well, maybe it does. But for $150,000 you can have this genuine 1943 VW Schwimmwagen and drive right into the lake while winking at the other boater’s women. Highly coveted by collectors, it was used during the second World War by the German army and is fully restored to original condition. This curious creation by VW has 4-wheel drive (in first gear only) and a propeller that drops down for amphibious activities. Oddly enough, the propeller only went in one direction, so no reverse. Now we know why there are paddles attached. Also attached is a very large (non-functioning of course) machine gun. Das schwimmwagen.

The coat rack is a necessary part of any entryway, but the functionality can get bogged down in all the coats, hats, scarves and bags that inevitably get stacked on each of the rungs or hooks. You won’t have that problem with The Switchboard coat rack. The 30″ long triangular rack includes 25 triangular wood hooks that rest against the wall until you fold them down to hold each of your daily items you don’t need for the moment. Made from beech wood, Switchboard is as stylish as it is functional.
