Cold War Cars

If you ever visit Berlin the narrative that you pick up is that this was the frontline in the 20th Century war between the capitalist and communist ideologies.

Facism, it seemed to me, was completely airbrushed from the narrative (except for the holocaust memorial).

Checkpoint Charlie is now a bit of a tourist destination with wall sized pictures and narratives in many languages.

Whatever about the negatives of the cold war you can’t deny that they had great cars!
