Ts-2,5 Tankspritze Kfz.343 - German WWII Fire Engine
In mid-thirties, the newly established Reich Ministry of Aviation (RLM) needed powerful fire service vehicles for the air force's air bases to be able to effectively fight fires in aircraft accidents. According to the specifications, these vehicles should carry the water and foaming agent, and had to be able to dispense the extinguishing foam out of 3 tubes in 5 seconds after the vehicle stops.
The result ofthe development process was the vehicle designated as Kfz.343. Despite it was regulation's mandatory to use the diesel engines for fire trucks, in this case the Henschel 33FA1 chassis with 120Hp carbureutor engine was chosen, because the gasoline was naturally available on any airfields.

1937 Opel Admiral Ambulance
In pre-war Germany Opel's role was very similar to Ford's in America. Opel cars were cheap, reliable and modern, but occupied the medium and small classes in German car production. Opel's Admiral was introduced in 1937 as an attempt to challenge large luxury cars from Horch, Mercedes-Benz and Maybach. The car was equipped with a 3.6 litre straight-6 engine with a top speed of 132 km/h (82 mph).

Borgward-Goliath F.400 - 1938 Threewheeller
Engineer Carl F.W. Borgward founded the "Goliath-Werke Borgward & Co." in 1928, when Germany was in the midst of deep economic and political crises. Borgward started production of affordable and reliable utility trucks of his own design. This risky enterprise was successful. Nicknamed "Blitzkarren", these 2-stroke-powered, 3-wheeled transporters with two seats were sold and exported by the thousands. Notably, in Germany until 1933, vehicles with less than four wheels and up to 350cc engines could be driven without a license and were tax-free. This subsequently formed Borgward's love of the 3-wheeler, and his appreciation of the 2-stroke principle.
Simultaneously, Carl Borgward used several production brands: "Hansa-Lloyd" for middle-class conventional 4-wheeled cars, "Borgward" for larger cars, and "Goliath" for 3-wheelers.
Production of the "Goliath F.400" 3-wheeled truck began in 1936. Its 2-stroke 2-cylinder 395cc engine delivered 12.5hp. Its top speed was 50 km/h, on a 2,5 meter wheelbase. Its maximum load capacity was 500kg. The price was RM 1225.
