    "Edzel" should read Edsel.

    "Dutch car" is a DAF 600.

    "Zuendapp-Janus" should read Zundapp Janus (2 mentions).

    The Oldsmobile is the "Golden Rocket" concept car.

  2. jamied says

    The Edsel is an Edsel Ranger (First Generation).

  3. British Pathé says

    "DAF 600" - catchy!
