Sorry, Markus.
Obviously, as I get older I forget a lot more. That is the second repost already this year and it is only February. :(

Please do keep it going.

Hi Markus:

You show us a Renault Juvaquatre 6 CV of 1938-1939.

Often mistaken for an Opel Kadett because of the design of the main headlamps being integrated into the sides of the motor hood.

Exactly,
Renault copied Kadett bodywork so closely that according to http://www.workshopoftheworld.com/nicetown/budd.html the parent firm of Kadett's bodymaker "sued for patent infringement and forced Renault to pay royalties to Ambi Budd."
Over to you,
Markus

So it's beute,
I saved this photo when I saw it on the eBay ages ago but the car is still unknown to me. Maybe something Czech; customized Skoda Popular?

Tough one,
But looks a bit like a DKW and was maybe retrofitted with motorcycle fenders for a reason: Jawa 600 Minor?

Yes, a Jawa Minor and a bit of a rare bird at that.
Back to Finland.

Thanks Bill,
Out of the other vehicles and into Panzers. IMO this partly disassembled vehicle is a prototype with wooden mock-up upper hull. What was the main armament of the final fully armoured vehicle?

Armour is not my field so I can only guess.
I know the chassis, so I am thinking it is one of the more rare variants.
Maybe this one.

You are correct in thinking of a gun calibre instead of the all MG armament normal for the Pz.I but your 15 cm is way too large; My quarter says this wood-burner probably couldn't haul that SIG 33 around.
A hint; the hull has a turret race and there's a mock-up of an early model turret from a different mark of tank barely visible in the background.

Running out of reference materiel. I only show two versions of the Panzer 1 that have other than MG armament.
I also have never seen such a tank with a Holzgaz apparat fitted.

Last, Best Guess.

Well,
You're just a silly centimetre away from the answer I was looking for and I'm off to bed. Below the photo of the gas generator equipped Pz.I/Pz.III hybrid 3,7 cm gun turret crew trainer from "Beute-Kraftfahrzeuge und -Panzer der deutsche Wehrmacht" by Walter J. Spielberger.
Over to you,

Not a good victory but I will accept due to the effort I put into the question.

Now another very rare (4 prototypes produced) vehicle for someone to think about.
