Re: antique cars - (vintage/classic please!)

Actually, Auto Union was formed by the four companies: Horch, Wanderer, DKW
and Audi.  This is the strory behind the four rings.  At some point, I seem
to recollect that it was in the early sixties, the image of Auto-Union was
overehauled - the four rings remained, but the Audi name started being
used.  Check the Audi official web page at
