Billund Motor Museum (2)

On 18 May 2016 I showed some phototographs I had taken in 1992 of some of the exhibits at the Billund Motor Museum in Denmark. Here are a few more of the photographs I took that day.
1939 Hanomag Type 13

1935 De Soto Airflow

1938 Mercedes Benz 320 Cabriolet

1938 Mercedes Benz 540K

1939 DKW F8

1937 Horch 853A

In 1932 Auto Union AG was formed, being an amalgamation of four manufacturers, Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer, and though each of those four continued to produce cars under their own names they each bore a badge with the four interlocking rings of the Auto Union, which survives to this day on Audi cars. You will see that the 1939 DKW and the 1937 Horch have that badge on these photographs. The 1912 Wanderer that I showed on the last batch of photographs doesn't have that badge because it was produced before the Auto Union merger.
