After reading the census on vehicles on British roads in your June edition, I decided to attempt to produce some figures for German roads for comparison.
This census is not as large in numbers as the very good one provided by your correspondent last month, but I think it is a fair guide to the distribution of makes on the average German roads. The British cars seen out here have been divided into three groups to provide a more accurate analysis, and as I am unable to identify the individual American makes, they are all listed under USA.
The result of the census is attached in table form. I am, incidentally, an Opel owner, and a very satisfied one.
Total 910—British, 20; Foreign, 890. Makes 30—British, 11; Foreign. 19.
I am, Yours etc.
