hey,
great cars and - one can suggest - a great story to discover. i have a mercedes w25 of the same type, similar to the posted auto unions. unfortunately, i cannot contribute anything helpful on their heritage, but have posted details on my vintage car restoration blog: see http://mgbgt.wordpress.com/2012/04/03/kleine-silberpfeile-wer-weis-was/
greetings from berlin!
