Well, it's not my 20 millionth photo, even if it sometimes seems that way.

Actually it's pictured directly above the 20 millionth, so it's locked in posterity.

This shows that a lot of Germany was still rubble when these cars were built.

It seems that front headlights weren't easily available, and that a spotlight became a headlight. Is the rear bumper a double bar type, much beloved of subsequent customisers?
