Okay, I think I'm next at putting up a question, so here it is. Who manufactured this car and what very successful German car manufacture was influenced by some of the cars that this company produced.

Man, you have to throw us a bone on this one! HOLY COW, I have never seen that before in my life. It does look a little like a VW bug though.

Brian, you are right about it looking like a Beetle but this car is a 1925 model, designed some fifteen years before the beetle. Ferdinand Porsche, was quoted as saying that this car and and a few others manufactured by the same company helped to inspire his design of the VW Beetle. The company was first established in 1835 and is still in business today even though they have not produced any post WWII automobiles. Before starting Porsche and designing the VW Beetle he worked as an engineer for this company. Just like the Beetle it is a rear engine car. In fact it looks a lot like a sixties era VW dune buggy.

I added some pictures of more cars produced by the same company. Take a look at how beautiful their full size sedan was.

One of the other photos almost looks like one of my college profs German made Borgward. What a POS that thing was!!! He kept it, I believe, long enough to change to oil.

I've done some crazy googling with Lohner, Daimler, Austro, Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft and a few others. I give up.

Hanomag, is the name of the company. The little white roadster is a 1925 2/10 Hanomag.

The 2 /10 PS (two place / ten brake horsepower) had a single-cylinder 500 cc engine at the rear. The rear axle was chain driven and had no differential.
The fenders, of the 2/10 PS were integrated into the bodywork of the car, allowing the passenger space to be wider than it would have been with the traditional separate fenders and running board. The compact drive-train allowed the floor to be lower, making it possible to enter the car from the ground without a running board. The rounded appearance of the 2 /10 PS, due to the envelope styling, caused the German people to nickname the car Kommissbrot after small loaves of bread used by the military. It was basically a unit body construction, not like the unit bodies of today but more like the unit body design of the VW Beetle. It must have been a decent little car because during the years of 1924 thru 1927 they sold almost 16,000 of them.

The company is still in business today but even though they have had a few short runs of trucks and buses they are mainly in the production of tractors, earth moving and farm equipment.

Now it's your turn Nightrider!

OK, Time to stump the experts you guys are getting to be.. One of my favorite fantasy builds, and I know where I can get one, is a small fiberglass, monoque style of car built in the U.K. from 1956 to 1961, with a few attempts to revive the car since the time of demise. The cars weighed in at about 600 lbs., were powered by small engines at start, then Royal Enfield supplied a motor for them in 1959 that broke the 100 mph barrier. A 2 seater, chain drive, rwd. A 3wheel model was introduced in 1960 but only one was sold. Today they are collected, many are raced in the nostalgia type of road racing, Triumph motorcycle motors are adapted fairly easily, there are clubs around the world. I would like to build one with a Yamaha V-max 1200 c.c. motor, it would scream!
