What is the source of this information?
"...and on the 8th day He made truck so that man, made on 7th day, had shelter when woman threw him out for the night."

It should have read "Ford's German factories".

Interesting. Obviously a WL vehicle but what is the runic symbol similar to das Reich?
Cheers,

Hi Aan,
OK, but doesn't that look like a WL on the right wing?
Cheers,

Hi,
This rune is but one symbol from the Runic Alphabelt, anybody could use them at any time, and certainly Das Reich and Pz Rgt 8 did, and others of course with a few variations, Feldherrenhalle, 256 Infantry Div, Artillery Brigade 249.

And so did some unit in the Luftwaffe.
