Speaking of Chevy Cadets apparently they liked that name. Here's a pick of a 1955 Chevy Cadet designed by Pete Brock . It led to the 60 Corvair and you can see a little Corvette in it also. Not a lot of info one this one.

Trouble with that car is; To change lanes, all you'd need to do is hold your arm out the window

No idea on the cool looking tool. Looks like a spreader of some sort.

German built in 1922 by Rumanian engineer Aurel Persu was one of the first who applied aerodynamic principles to cars. The first car with wheels inside its aerodynamic line. He put 85000 mile on this little beauty. 1400 cc engine.
Here's a couple of very interesting links;
