South Africa was a major export market for DKW. Thousands of cars were shipped there from the mid 1950s to mid 1960s and many hundreds of DKWs are still on the road. These cars kept on the road by DKW service providers such as DKW and Auto Solutions and an enthusiastic and dedicated DKW club.
These photos of the DKW and Auto Solutions workshop were taken by Brendan Odell on a recent trip to South Africa.

In Australia we can only dream of so many DKWs in one place.
