Ankauf means "buy" or "purchase" (ankaufen is the verb in German)

PKW is probably a similar acronym to DKW, where KW = KraftWagen which was an old German term for motor car.

...so it's likely to be an extraordinarily literal* and unimaginative name for a car dealership.





* In Germany, who'd have thought that... scratchchinlaugh

PKW is Personenkraftwagen, ie car
LKW is Lastkraftwagen, freight carrying vehicle, ie van or truck

Both terms in everyday use

So PKW ankauf is a bit like webuyanycar

Edit: interestingly, or not, DKW ( which was originally Dampfkraftwagen - steam powered car ) was also based in Düsseldorf after the war, factory now makes Merc Sprinters

Rarity rather than supercar. I can’t remember seeing any sort of Renault 18 for years, so this Turbo example in lovely condition caught my eye.




Is this half as good?

Briefly owned a Fuego Turbo, really loved the Fuego shape and the fact it wasn't that much slower than the 2.8i Capri but on 1600cc

More like 700 according to HML? Which is probably wrong anyway.
