2CVs in Austrian newspapers

This page is mainly dedicated to German speaking people (since it makes no sense to translate the articles; all the history written in them is well known by us all). But I made an English page to catch a glimpse of Austrian newspapers and the Citroëns in them. Intentionally I disabled the automatic color adjustment for scanning the pictures, because I think it would be incredible to view a newspaper article of 1st March 1969 on a real white background and maybe even in HTML format.

Thanks to my father!
