On Ideas and their Sources

Advertisement for CARS magazine, December 1953:  Madman’s Dream Car  DID HITLER really intend putting a Volkswagen in every Super-man’s garage, or was Der Fuehrer playing a gigantic con game with the German people?

The answers are supplied in Gordon Wilkins’ fascinating story in the December CARS (The Strange History of “The People’s Car”).

The worth of an idea cannot be judged by its source.
