Re: the 4 companies of Auto Union.....

Close.  Horch, Wanderer, DKW & Audi got together in 1932.  Audi got
bought out by Daimler-Benz in 1956, then finally by VW in 1964.   NSU got
swallowed up by VW/Audi in 1969, after the whole Ro80 debacle.  That's
when VW was making some really questionable automobiles, i.e. the 411 &
412.  (What were they thinking???)  At least that's how I heard it.
