Nice photo.

Er, driver in white is Norman Wisdom, about to fall over and shout "Oi, Mr Grimsdale, Mr GRIMSDALE!"

From the trees and the flatness it looks like Hockenhiem. I imagine the Tannoy has just announced a Tiger has flipped breaking the single heirless drivers neck and the remains need to be moved by 9 pm tonight; in the middle of the humpty dumpty look alike competition.

Can anything of interest be found in the car park ? At least a couple of Beetles and is that a Porsche ? But what else ?

Good showing of Deeks. There is what looks like a Borgward but I think is actually a rarer Hansa 1800. Not seeing any bubbles. You must have better eyes than I have. I think the open car is to large to be a Frisky, if that is the suggestion, compare it to what is next to it. It is more NSU Spyder sized, but that was later than this picture, so I would guess at Alfa Spyder or Fiat.

Not getting it. Then I am not magnifying the image off the forum. Looks like another Lloyd beyond the BMW 600. There is a building with people in-front of it. The might be something parked next to the otherwise lone car over at the wood edge.

White car number 3, extreme left. Looking again, it's hard to tell if the distant one in front of the trees and fence is the front end of an Isetta or rear of 4 wheeler car....isetta Isetta?

Front row, BMW 600, Puch or Abarth 500 (?) (the badge doesn't look Fiat), three Lloyd LP600 (with the indicators on top of the front wings), NSU Prinz 1. I can't make out what is to the left of the BMW 600. Maybe, maybe an Isetta, but looks a bit too high for it.

At the rear, two Beetles, don't know what the soft top behind them or what the car to the left is. Then a DKW which may be an Auto Union 1000S. Behind it perhaps a Renault Fregate, not sure. To the right a mystery car. The rear looks a bit like an Isetta, but it appears to have a bonnet and the screen is too flat. Further to the right two more AUs, a Porsche 356, a Merc 180 or 200, an unknown convertible (Opel?), Borgward Isabella (definitely Isabella, Al - its has the small rhombus, so post 1958), another AU 1000S, and an unidentifiable one (could it be another Porsche?). I wouldn't want to comment on the car in front of the trees, not even with max magnification.

But keep them coming, Richard!
