    It's a PR nuisance: major magazine rings up the communications office looking to compare the latest, greatest offering with something else.

    Here's something you don't see every day. Take one DKW Munga, built by Auto Union during the 50s primarily for military use. Paint it yellow, fit it with mudder tires and rally lights, swap in an aircooled VW boxer four and you have one very unique beach buggy. We've just found this beast for...
