IF Gold yo

Original People's car scale model

VW Beetle model which might be very similar to the one Dr. Porsche showed to Hitler.  Very well made and amazing details.  Its only 40cm long or so.  At Deutsches Museum Verkehrszentrum Munich

1949 VW Beetle

with Sekurit glass which is still alive and kicking to date.  I did not know the original like this had little bump on roof where rear view mirror is.  Love slate gray, so German.  Deutsches Museum Verkehrszentrum Munich

Bosch boy

just like Michelin had Bibendum, did Bosch had a Bosch boy mascot?

side guard

Deutsches Museum Verkehrszentrum Munich fixie with woven side tire guards.  Surprisingly you can still see similar one on street being used.  Talk about durable design / engineering.

Polo and Deutsches Museum Verkehrszentrum

VW Lupo at Deutsches Museum Verkehrszentrum.  3L does not mean it has a 3 litre engine but takes 3 litre to run 100km.  Hence 33.3km/l and that is pretty good for more than decade old car.  Also the museum has beautiful raw wood ceiling.

great ad amimono

adidas samba primeknit - the world's first knitted football boot.  Like Nike Flyknit and no matter what Adidas has to say on who was first, whoever win the market with design and quantity will prevail later.  Good ad though.
