    Excellent pictures, looks like a fantastic place. I just find it absurd, though, that a museum with Hitler's car would censor the swastika. They even omit it from the Africa Korps symbol. If a muesum is supposedly displaying history, one either comes away with an impression the Nazi's never existed, or the muesum and current Germany were affilated with them, lol!

    Wouldn't mind pulling up at my local Battlecruiser (Boozer) in the summer time, roof down, parked on double yellow lines, near side on the kerb, keys left in the ignition and kick the door shut before strolling nonchalantly into the hostelry for a pint of the black stuff! How cool would that be.....

    The 'front-on' view of Hitler in the grey staff car, is not the same car in the museum.
    In the photo, there is a chrome handle permanently fixed to the passenger side
    windshield frame, and the wipers are mounted in different positions.

    The black car on display is not the one Hitler is seen in either. The museum car
    has a completely different windshield frame compared to the photos.

    They are I suppose, representative of the type of vehicles that were
    used for TR parades, etc, but they are not the actual vehicles
    seen in the period photos...............
