Not sure that qualifies Stuart, I think I spotted 1 Daf and a couple of NSU's in the whole piece, this however is truly micro (0.38) http://www.britishpathe.com/video/summer-storms-in/query/small+car+wreck

For dead DAFs you cannot do better than the Dutch racing DAFs and other things backwards. This film includes the Messerschmitt on two wheels which appears as a clip on its own elsewhere. There are several versions of the racing up to about 28 minutes. I think it is a converted film as in some versions the image is back to front.

I believe there is German film of Goggo banger racing somewhere.

All these clips show the joys of life before Health and Safety anaesthetised activity to the point where much is not worth doing as the element of danger is required to make it rewarding. There is a balance but where is it? Probably in Bob's garage out of an Isetta.

I am tempted to offer links to sheds crashing but that might be pushing a joke too far!
