    If Mr. Grieger remains silent on the circumstances of his departure it can be safely assumed that he received a very large cheque in exchange for his cooperation.

    Given the stupidity of recent company statements I wouldn't have been surprised if forced labourers weren't blamed for Dieselgate.

    They offered the Dieselgate programmer the Ernst Rohm retirement option.

    Saw this on a prewar cars group. No info given except "1937 Volkswagen Fusca Beetle KdF-Wagen W30 prototype"

    I don't know what is going on here but like the picture. Maybe the VW factory being run by the Brits?

    In the 70's, most of the old Beetles here went off-road and, depending on your budget, looking like this or this:

    1938 Brochure.

    Any German speaker like to translate it? :)

    Being just someone driving a car sometimes, my initial comment is: WOW, what a car!
    Some of the very well chosen wording is pretty technical, but give me some time and I can translate the text. May be not in such long sentences though.
    Stefan.
