1953 DKW Auto Union

If America is dead set on believing that minivans “are only for [boring] moms,” I hope that crossover vehicles like the Mazda5 and Toyota Venza move ever so slightly taller, sort of trojan-horsing the microvan back into our lives. Minivans of the full size type (Chrysler Town & Country, Honda Odyssey) are actually some of the most useful vehicles on the road today, but there could be some innovation in the segment whereby going smaller might bring about a new understanding of how fun they can be. This DKW/Auto Union feels and looks like the perfect little runabout (the white wheels are great, too).
