Dutch Auto-Union Museum, Bergen

What happens to a collection when the owner passes on and their children don't share their passion? Sadly this sometimes means the collection is disposed of. In Bergen, The Netherlands, it seems that this may become the fate of DKW Auto Union Museum. The museum collection was painstakingly built up by Henk Geerts, a lifelong fan of the marque and active member of the DKW Club Netherlands.


The collection includes some very rare and interesting machines, such as the IHLE and Tornax bodied roadsters below.



Sadly Henks passed away in November 2013 at the age of 82 and his children are now pondering what is to become of his legacy.For more details about the museum and the question of its future, please see this excellent article by Guus Docen - http://www.motormarques.com/news/european-desk/item/630-the-dutch-auto-union-museum-in-bergen
