    As said in the previous post,the bodywork of the "Trabant" was made
    of plastic.Hence the connection to the chemical industry.

    Car-manufacturing in Zwickau.
    20 Pfg. Horch 8 (1911)
    35 Pfg. Trabant
    August Horch (1868-1951) founded a car-production company in 1904,what would become the most selling producer of upper-class
    and luxury-cars in Germany,till the beginning of World War II.
    However he was squeezed out of his company by stock-holders and
    founded a new company in 1909.
    A court-battle about the names of both companies ended badly for
    Horch,so he could not use his name for his new one.
    He renamed it,by translating "Horch" into Latin: "Audi".
    Till today a very good brand-name in the world of car-manufacturing.
    Stamps issued April 3rd,1979.

    most of them have been demolished) and cars for everyone.

    Car on the "Großglockner Hochalpenstraße".The stamp is from the
    airmail-set of 15,issued Aug.16th,1935.The year,when that road was opened.Then it was the only road in Austria,connecting Salzburg
    with Carinthia.
    Must have been a challenge for the cars of the time to master the road,what leads up as high as 2500 m.
    The road,run by a private company,is a mayor attraction of Austria.

    Here are some early Australian models, unfortunately none of the manufacturers still exist, although the cars do. The se-tenant stamps were issued in 1984, the 50th anniversary of the Veteran Car Club in South Australia (Feb 1934), changed later to the Sporting Car Club, believed to be the 2nd oldest such car club after the Veteran Car Club in Great Britain. They are as you see: IMG_0001.jpg
