A day brought to you, in somewhat smoky fashion, by Wartburg. The last one is a Caravan and they’re big money if you find yourself possessed of a good one.


The smoke comes from here.

No, it’s not back to front, it’s one of several derivatives of a pre war DKW engine that originally had thermosyphon cooling (no water pump) so the radiator had to be mounted high up which dictated a location behind the engine and therefore e rear mounted fan.
