To start with the Mercedes Benz, the 30's 170 H, a strange on-off item from Stuttgart model list, as it is a rear engined car. Maybe they try to test the Tatra and KDF Wagen (the futur beetle) rear engined concepts by their own...

 

 

Another 170 from the 30's, the "V", this time with a  more conventional lay-out...

 

This model at Portugal have the nickname "Matateu". The story says that Matateu, a famous black football player of the 50's had one and the name sitck on the car.
