Interesting 3-wheeled bike configuration with a single wheel in back and two in front.

Two cars in particular I'd like to call everyone's attention to:

1. The black car next to the red Mini--I think it's a Trabant.

2. What is the racy little white over orange-yellow coupe further down the same row? It has me stumped.

Dunno about the orange-yellow coupe, but it's got a nice 'creamsicle' vibe.

Well the black car is not a Trabant - its probably a Peugeot 404: http://rpmedia.ask.com/ts?u=/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/4c/Peu404vitrear.jpg/120px-Peu404vitrear.jpg

The cream roofed orange number looks to be a Ford Taunus: http://ipocars.com/imgs/a/f/f/f/e/ford__taunus_17m_p3_klsch_h_bath_approval_1962_1_lgw.jpg

Anybody know what the car between the VW Ghia and Transporter is? Looks like an old Benz but I'm not sure.

Closest Row from right to left:
Edsel, Peugeot 403, VW Type 1, Volvo PV544, Volga??, Mercedes fintail

next closest:
Austin Mini, Peugeot 404, Mercury Comet, Mercedes ponton, Volvo 122, Ford Taunus 17M, VW Karmann Ghia, Mercedes ponton, VW Transporter

4th row, 3rd car from right, is that a gray Fiat 500 or something else? And a red one, or maybe a 600, (too blurry) first car on right edge 5th row.

I think that's a 1962 or '63 Fairlane, not a Comet.
