+1 to that lot that spotted this before I did.
Really big thanks.

The first one I worked on was a DKW back in 59.
And seeing the four rings and AutoUnion together proves (to my mind at least) that my pronunciation of "Audi" is correct.

Then you were probably in a DKW around the same time as my dad Ray ...
