These folks look like they can't wait to fill up their stamp books and take delivery of their new KdF-Wagen. Alas, it was not to be.

Well I'm back from the very strange world I've been to and glad to see this thread is ticking along nicely.
I've been very interested in these two images

and

The emblem on the side door seems to be the German Railway Symbol in the first and the number plates in the second are DR railway numbers.

Then there is

and
Image

While the SS car is likely grey has anybody any idea what other colours were in use for the other three. I thought very dark blue or black were the colours at the time but maybe there were more.

Hopefully somebody knows more than I do (which isn't hard TBH) and I can tick an item off the annoying list.

Cheers

Hello Hans,
Interesting photo. We also see NSKK Korpsführer Adolf Hühnlein and Dr. Porsche as well.
Here's another pic from the same event:
