You clever clogs myg WR Friday Night Pub Quiz 8-6-18 - Page 2 3530011831

It was the Volkswagen Beetle.

I don't think anybody has answered it correctly, well done.


EDIT - I don't think it was Hitler's orders, it was the British and American allies

who helped rebuild the German car industry.

I'm a bit like that, millions of factoids stuck in my bonce.

My daughter is worse then me, she is an absolute mine of information.

She likes history, as do I.

Two interesting facts about King Richard II which she told me.

1) He invented the pocket handkerchief.

2) He was the first King to demand to be called 'Your Majesty'.

Sounds like your daughter is very similar to mine Ray.I had to google to sort out that Hitler link that was irritating me .British Army did reopen the bombed out factory after the war and used the blueprint from the original design of Porsche's and Hitler's.Hitler made Porsche a German citizen as he did not like his being Czech.

Myg, I didn’t know that Ferdinand Porsche was Czech.
It’s annoying and amazing to think that we helped a defeated nation to
get back on their feat, and now they have a better economy than we do.
I bought a new Volkswagen Beetle in the mid 70’s, a fabulous car to own.
I don’t dwell on nostalgia, modern cars are far better and safer to own and drive.
