Prototyp Automuseum Hamburg, pt. I

Part one of the photos taken at the sublime Prototyp Automusuem in Hamburg. The museum focuses on hand-built and prototype German cars. I took well over 200 pix here, enough to burn through a good chunk of my phone's remaining memory, along with 2/3 of the battery. Here's the first part. (Sheesh, when did this turn into a car blog anyway?)

 Period skis and other artifacts inside
