Abb.149 from Eco cars (#G1)

Img.149 (#G1): The appearance of the "May Beetle" car designed by Jozef Ganz around 1930. According to the descriptions in the aforementioned book [1#G2], it was this car that became the progenitor and model for the development and implementation of the world's greatest automotive success, i.e. the "hunchback" mass-produced by Volkswagen. In spite of this, the designer of the above "hunchback" was persecuted by the "curse of inventors" throughout his life. He was denied the financial compensation he expected. Thus, instead of satisfaction and recognition for his creative contribution to the technical progress of mankind, he continually experienced bitterness and disappointment. He died in 1967 in Australia in poverty and oblivion.
