My aunt (father’s brother’s wife) tells how her parents ‘bought’ a Volkswagon. Yes, they were members of the Nazi party.
First you received a ‘card’, then you made ‘payments’. Sometimes, because you had no money, you were credited for party services. Once the card was filled, you then received the Volkswagen.
I seem to remember that VW honored these cards after WWII, oor credited them partially. I used to be a VW freak before they stopped making then. Does my memory fail me?
