I think Citroëns were also manufactured in ex Yugoslavia (Cimos Citroën): http://www.citroenet.org.uk/foreign/...ija/cimos.html

Revoz built Renault 12, 16 and 18 as well.
At the beginning of 1973, a cooperation agreement was signed with Renault and the production of the Renault 4 was started. During this period, a limited number of Renault 12, Renault 16 and Renault 18s were assembled as well.

TAS (Sarajevo) built the Beetle, Golf I, Golf II, not sure about Jettas but I remember Jettas with TAS logo

I didn't expect they signposted E-routes in the DDR.

All communist countries in Eastern Europe signposted E-routes, these roads didn`t have own country numbering.

I decided to post a series of googled pics about the former East Germany. I think they're interesting beceause nowaday we think of Germany as a rich and powerful country and it's difficult imagining that until recently part of it was a very underdeveloped and oppressive country. Not many regions in the world changed so much in few years.





Last exit in the GDR
image hosted on flickr


GDR rest area


GFR-GDR border in the 70s


Original Reichautobahn










The famous Check Point Charlie


The following pics are taken in 1992, after reunification. Nothing changed since those autobahnnen were built in the 30s.







Falling of the wall. 9 November 1989
Pics taken from http://www.grahnert.de/grenzstempel/...o/foto89-1.htm



















DDR border stone


Old Kingdom of Prussia border stone


Wall along Elba river near Sparnberg to prevent people escaping to west by swim or boat. Pic taken from the Federal Republic.


Before the wall collapsed Hungary opened its border with Austria. East Germans could reach Western Germany through Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Austria.




http://en.1989-2009.at/?story=10

This building in Philipstal was cut in two by the border. The border was where the asphalt change (the road is managed by different lander now).


The border wasn't fortified in 1950. They fortified it later when Eastern Germany started to lose population.

I think this pic has been taken in Western Germany. It shows West German who is wondering where the cities on the board actually are He is a litlle fed up because none of them can't be found on his map of Germany anymore.

I also miss the GDR. I travelled with bus on the motorways in the GDR in 1987. They were almost empty, only an occasional Trabbi passing by, it was a strange experience.

people, don't be such fools. it is easy to say that you miss GDR when you have not experienced life in such a country.

@chris: you can see such situations in Italy in front of their confusing signs with 30 destinations

It is interesting that signage of west and east Germany was almost equal.

The Swedish television archive has a clip about going on holiday (by car) in the GDR, recorded in 1985. It can be found here: http://www.svtplay.se/klipp/159163/reportage-fran-ddr or on Youtube:
