Hungarian a Balato or Aqua Regia. Without looking at Julian Nowill's great book I am not sure.

since no one guessed it immediately here is another view of the previously posted microcar.
note the size of the front wheels!  Could it be a Peel relative?

this one has a prize attached.

A subscription to Microcar News for 1 year no matter where you reside in the world.
First person to post the correct answer in this forum wins.

You have one week from the date of this post to figure it out.  After that I will post an original advert for the vehicle.

I do like Rusty Chrome's second vehicle!

Rusty, The little red bug, is it a commercial tug that used to be used at airports and railway stations? I like it. Rob.  ;D

 Reaching for my copy of the Standard Catalog of American Cars ( ;D), I can say that the red thing from Rusty is a 1946-48 Motorette, built in Buffalo, New York, with just over 4,000 made. The thing in the carpark is a 1947 Delcar delivery van, from Troy, New York.

 Jim, a few wild guesses for your thing; Auto Cub? Brogan? 1948 Scootmobile? Why do I also keep thinking of Libelle.....
