Volkswagen Car Tower in Wolfsburg

When we toured the biggest auto plant in the world last April in Wolfsburg Germany - one of the neatest things was this car tower. It was 20 stories tall and held 20 cars on each floor. The computer could retrieve any one of the 400 cars in less than a minute. This is where Volkswagen stores the cars waiting for customers to come and pick them up.

The Wolfsburg Plant is like a Disney theme park. There are museums - pavilions - restaurants - showrooms - and test areas. Wolfsburg is the richest town in the world - $125,000 per capita income. The whole town was built to build the Beetle.
