Lessing rejects the common idea that horse pulled coaches were the design models to give inspiration to the first car makers.
To put it in a nutshell: first came the bicycle, then the automobile. And as the number of traffic jams is increasing, the air is getting polluted and gas prices are going up, ever more people are turning back to the original form of individual vehicle mobility: cycling. A good way of starting to contribute to this trend is to always carry the folding bike along when using the car, as does the owner of this vintage Mercedes Benz:
