Fifty years changes a whole lot of things. This little, but very interesting, article describing the Germany of 1959 from the car enthusiast's POV shows just how much things can change. Germany, when this magazine was printed, was just 14 years away from the utter devastation of WWII, and it's really pretty amazing how much the German people, with the help of America's Marshall Plan, had rebuilt not only their infrastructure and industry, but their society itself. This is a fun little timepiece. Enjoy!
