#5 The new and Improved Trabant? One interesting anecdote is that after Germany reunited they had trouble recycling Trabants because the "duroplast body" had all sorts of 'mystery ingredients'. They finally made it into structural bricks to line the autobahns...

#8 ^^The Trabant bodies were made of a plastic-like material (we may never know), so even though they may not have worked well, the bodies didn't rust.

Please, however warranted, no Corvette jokes here.

#9 Off the "And speaking of... OW... think I pulled something!" pile...

Les tambours roared rat-a-tat-touille
As the old 2CV hung a louis
And parted the horde
On the flooded Concorde.
"Say, did somebody order chop suey?"

#12 Oh no, Zenobia F — rat-a-tat-touille brings in a play on French cooking, so necessary if you're going to end with ersatz Chinese.
