For the collectors

A rare model has come for sale again on ebay. A very small model (1:200) of a 181 with passengers. This metal car is made by Mercator in Germany in very small numbers. Want something special in your collection? Go ahead...mercator

In the navy

The Greece Navy had a few 181 in service. The pictures are quiet old so I doubt these are still in service. hellashellas2

Better than airbags

internal useinternal use2Last year, I posted this 12p. brochure (see the 'literature'-list), and from that i quote: "The spare wheel that is stowed in the front would act as an impact absorber in the case of a head on collision thus adding to the safety of the vehicle occupants". So the maker of that ad below is wrong, the 181 is safe... very safe! I bet Ralph Nader didn't took a look in the front trunk.

funny

This is a rather funny reproduction of those no-nonsense VW decorationads from the 60's. Made me smile... so that's good.

Industrias alsi

Today, a friend/modelcarseller offered me this model. It looks like an old Strombecker model but it seems brand new. On the bottomside a small sticker indicates "Industrias Alsi" ... Mexico.industrias alsi
