ID 480 is a late 50s Wartburg Station wagon. Possibly an after market conversion.

There is something about the East German cars that set them apart, in looks that is.
The car is not an aftermarket job but is a Wartburg 311/312 "Camping Limousine" which was built between 1957 - 1963 in very small numbers.
The 311 was a 900cc three cylinder, two stroke, front wheel drive car, delivering 37 bhp with a top speed of 72mph.
In 1962 it got a 991 cc engine and was called the 312.

Bang on. It's the North American version of the European Ford Sierra XR4i, known as the Merkur XR4ti. Quite rare in North America these days. But I saw one parked at our University yesterday, so decided to post it on this forum.

These cars were all built in Germany, hence the German name (Merkur is Mercury in German, pronounced as 'Mare-coor'). More info on this page.

Cyrus do you have any bigger or closer pics? You should post it in "Which car is this?" thread. Also it is going to get very difficult to guess the car as the picture is of poor quality and one cannot see the tell tale signs which help in recognising a car. Also there will only be speculation as even you dot know about the car yourself.
Mods kindly shift to appropriate thread

ID:484 is a 2003-2006 Ford StreetKa.

This particular model was launched by pop singer Kylie Minogue in 2003.
In 2005, the Streetka got a 1.6-litre 95 bhp Duratec engine.

Very unusual to see one in yellow, most of the ones I've seen are silver, blue or red. It is definitely a customized version. The wheels are non-standard and
it has been fitted with unusual fog lamps for a Ka. Also the rocker panel skirts and mirrors with turn signals are from a kit.

Now SirAlec, please attempt ID:483.
