How about a 1959 DKW 3=6 (Auto-Union. later became Audi). 3 Cylinder 2 Cycle (3x2=6) about 45HP, front wheel drive when there weren't any others except SAAB. Mix oil with the gasoline. These photos aren't of mine, but of it's identical twin - white/rust top and gray bottom. The Cuban army used these cars with the rear windows knocked out and a machine gun mounted on a pivot in the rear sticking out where the rear window used to be.

It was rare, unusual, and cheap ($180 well used) then. It's still rare and unusual but not as cheap now.

Not what you were expecting but since you asked... My first car was a 1973 Pontiac Catalina, 4 door with the 400 cu in V8 (or 6.6 litre for the Brits). That was the car that started the phrase "Land Yacht." It probably also caused the oil shortage in '73. Mine was a former fleet vehicle and was so worn out that I had to crank on the steering wheel like a dirt track racer just to keep it on the road. It had to be one of the worst cars GM ever made. Mine was metallic BRG even though there was nothing British or racy about it. I had it for a year and sold it for a Toyota Corolla because I couldn't afford to put gas in it. Here is a picture from the internet. It is amazing that even pictures survive of that behemoth. View attachment 273586
