Dear all,

I just received this. Alas, I am completely ignorant
of this area. Can any car buff on the list help?

(Perhaps contact him directly, or share with the List
according to taste - and the moderators' discretion.)

Happy motoring!

We are compiling a book about the automobile industry of North Korea (cars,

We hope you can help us to complete the information, we have a lot of holes,
like: which car was from which factory. Also, we have no photo of the
Pyongyang 410 and the photo of the Paekdusan is very bad. Some of the items
are very poor. Is there any publication inclusive pictures on this subject?
Maybe in a magazine?

Any piece or bit is a step forward.

Many greetings!
