Does anyone have Sachsen Pils promo diecast? Please post pictures if you do. I know there are several currently on eBay. I'm curious how many different vehicles were made. I'd like to get a car rather than a truck.

Below is an example of Sachen Pils promo diecast.

Looks like a Grell. I have about 30 different with about a fourth that came from alcohol vendors. I have that truck but not with that vendor

Yeah. I"ll see what I have. I have taken most of the cars out of the package but I kept the packaging because most are so cool

Stutz, I had this picture in my photobucket. Tomorrow night I'll dig through the garage.

Holy crap! There are some memories! Born and grown up in the GDR (or in German DDR), this is just freakin awesome to me. Love the army Trabant.

On the card, the W.Camping stands for Wartburg Camping. Great stuff. Bit of a story there about how Opel was building cars in Eisenach and then IFA and the government of East Germany took over. Wartburg is the name of the castle near Eisenach where Martin Luther stayed and translated the Bible.

I love a cool Barkas too, the East German van sort of thing. Here is a photo of it, taken on Karl-Marx-Allee in East Berlin. The one in the middle lane is a newer model Wartburg 353:
