"At the center of the opera 'Autofahrt in Deutschland', written in the year of the dissolution of Die tödliche Doris, is an unroadworthy passenger car and Helmut Kohl, who has a fatal accident on the autobahn. Three women are sitting in the car, singing their way through the country without a driver, getting out now and then to perform their solos at the front, at the edge of the stage. They are Hermoine Zittlau, Etsuko Okazaki and Tabea Blumenschein. For the last live performance of Deadly Doris, Wolfgang Müller ordered this car from Stephan Geene, the organizer of the Munich event. "Stephan wanted to have Tabea with him and asked me to convince her. I told him, ok, that won't be so easy." In return, he had to promise me to put a used car in this museum, as a stage prop at the performance venue, recalls Wolfgang Müller: "Tabea had a special role in the group - she only ever performed when she felt like it. Sometimes it took some convincing." The organizers finally got the car from the car graveyard and shipped it to the museum with the help of a transport company. While the "ghost train" is a well-known and ambiguous symbol, "ghost cars" appear rather rarely in film and literature. For Wolfgang Müller (*1957), who has no driver's license and comes from the VW city of Wolfsburg, founded during the Nazi era, whose car plant dominates everything there, and for Nikolaus Utermöhlen (*1958 - 1996), who had a driver's license but hardly ever drove a car, the car was a symbol of German madness, a national fetish."
