Here's a photo of Dad (standing) and me with our German, Auto Union 1936 Wanderer W25K Roadster.

In my last blog, I asked people to respond with a description of what's in their garages. It's not possible to post a photo with a response. However, if you create a blog, you are able to post photos. So, I'll start. Those who know me have heard me talk about the original, 1930s vintage, German sports car that my Dad, my brother Kevin, and I are restoring. The car is a German, Auto Union, 1936 Wanderer W25K roadster. In 1932, four German car companies formed the Auto Union. The four interlocking circles that all Audi's wear designated the four German automotive companies that formed the Auto Union in 1932. They were: Audi, DKW, Horch, and Wanderer. Audi and Horch automobiles were expensive and competed with Mercedes and Maybach. DKW constructed economy cars, and were intended for the working class. The Wanderer cars were built for those in the middle class, or those who wanted an excellent automobile for the money. Wanderer produced a whole range of cars. The particular model we own, the W25K Roadster, is a two-place sports car. The engine was designed by Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, the very same man who created the VW and founded the world famous sports and racecar company, Porsche. If you'd like to know more about our 1936 Wanderer W25K Roadster, respond to this blog with your questions. Having owned and worked on the car off and on for more than 30 years, I'm somewhat of an expert. :) I look forward to receiving your questions!
