  1. That’s an easy one – they were all vans:
    Romeo (1954)
    238 (1966)
    D3 (1950, but sold already 1946 as Chenard-Walcker)
    Estafette (1959)

    The vehicles you wanted us to first think of – Alfasud, 128, 204, R4 – all came later.

    1. Phew! Well done. That’s the right answer, and you’ve saved me the need to explain.

      There’s no catching out of DTW, as long as motorcycles aren’t part of the answer.

  2. What do the 1938 Rileys and the 1965 Subaru 1000 have in common? This is about as esoteric a question as I can come up with.

    1950s Euro delivery vans made with WW1 corrugated Junkers aero-tin are not my area of expertise, nor of many other car enthusiasts, I feel. So kudos for that idea. What’s even more worrying is that someone else knew the answer right off the bat. Good lord.

    1. “… right off the bat” – well, I have to admit there was some wikipedery involved.

    2. Could it be that they both had four cylinder engines which had two camshafts, although the valves were operated through pushrods?

    3. Bill, nobody else has come up with an answer. Am I thinking along the right lines?
