Haha Undis, you beat me to it! Laughing

I was already surprised not to see any pictures of this exhibition here yet.

When were you there? I was there yesterday. I see no black lines around the cars in your pictures (unbelievable in 30 minutes I watched 2 people just open the doors on the VW38 and shut them pretty hard Confused ). Some preopening party? Great to see the VW38 in real life! The Type 60k10 is also truly a piece of art. Would really recommend the museum and the city of Hamburg.

Not over the moon with the picture quality and still struggling with the settings of my new camera with these indoor conditions but I started a photography course last week. Very Happy

Enjoy!

Unfortunately it is much too far for me to travel to Europe from where I live now. These pictures were taken by people very closely associated with the VW38 and considering that they still had not made their way into this thread, I took the liberty to post them up. I really wish I could have seen the exhibition in real life.

So, is it assumed to be number 6 ONLY because of it's different radius in the curve on the engine hood?

Not trying to be annoying, this is just what i was wondering after reading 190 pages.

Great respect for this restauration and - assuming you did your investigation properly - really great to see #6 in superb condition!

Hello MellyVille
no - this not the only think - there are 3 more points ( inclusive parts of the number on the rest of the orginal chassis )
But all this stuff you can read in the book of the 38 wich will be out in fall this year.

@kdfkid:

I already thought you would have more to proof for it, but i couldn't remember reading any more facts!

One thing is for sure, that 38-book is gonna be mine. I really like your work, you're doing a great job preserving nice history!

Was it ever determined if there will be an English version of the 38 book?

The unique shape of the rear lid is all the proof that's necessary. All the other details just confirm it.

The front wheels of the Berlin-Rome car are hemmed in by the fender skirts, so the maximum wheel deflection has to be limited accordingly.

I read this thread over the course of a couple weeks and looked forward to my time alone so that I could immerse myself in all the GREAT work that was taking place on this fantastic piece of aircooled history. I cannot begin to imagine the facts as they will present themselves in the much anticipated book...I'm hoping that there have been many yet unannounced historical finds regarding the complete history of No. 6 that will have found their way into the book...I for one, long to know what No. 6 would write its own autobiography, if such a thing were possible...Thanks for sharing all that you have.
