Many, many new Volkswagens from long ago

Historic photo

Background of VW- from German Propaganda Archive.
This is an interesting site. It contains photos and drawings pertaining to the Volkswagen. There are also descriptions of the factory town that was planned to grow up around the factory. It's interesting to compare that to present day Wolfsburg which is still dominated by the Volkswagen factory. However, today the Autostadt Museum stands right next to the factory. It is billed as a museum/amusement theme park all about cars. In addition to the one hour tour of the factory itself, there are several pavilions dedicated to other cars as well (i.e. Lamborghini, Audi, Bentley). Ironically, Porshe is currently (2008) attempting to buy Volkswagen.
