Which location? Headlights and hubcaps are looking VW-ish, but this means not much.

should it be parc Phoenix in Nice opened 1960? as Raul1983 and Sandie told us, the adventurers shot in Nice?
or is it in Suisse?
as ingo says, it not only has parts of VW, it looks like Porsche bulked up between the wings, look what i found here.

link shows amusement park Railway train of 1960 in Germany build by
Sollinger Hütte Uslar idea by Escher
with Porsche boat engine 1600 ccm 46 PS (body developed out of Porsche 356)
not the right one, but similar style concept, idol of our trackless train indeed!

PORSCHEzug here it is! photo Dortmund 1959 it has looks and heart of PORSCHE
http://www.switch-gmbh.com/ws/dfg/assets/images/91AK_K_1klein2.JPG
make: Kässbohrer Dortmund chassis VW type 1 industrial engine Porsche 1600
these are of same origin as the Porsche Railway trains but called "Schienenlose" trackless trains
http://www.switch-gmbh.com/ws/dfg/html/schienenlose.html
the story:
http://www.switch-gmbh.com/ws/dfg/index.html
inspired by Escher´s mid 50ies design
2 originally built on VW chassis used in Norderney purchased for BuGa Dortmund 1959
3 further ones built by Sollinger Hütte called Porschezug with wings of DKW 3=6
the one we are looking for, is one of 6 trains built than
improved by
Kässbohrer Dortmund, even the site of this trains don´t mention their fate
the windscreen seems to be of Auto Union.

Once again excellent detective work andrepa. To answer the question of location this episode was filmed in the Netherlands.

Thank you very much Raul1983, and the northern vegetation, with birch trees in background, made me wonder about Cote d´Azur :)

Where? In what park? :think:

Its windscreen looks like DKW 1000 S de Luxe.

de Efteling? :think: I remember the "summer vacation programme" from the 80ies in the German TV, where several events of this park were broadcasted. Besides typical Dutch summer activities http://www.flickr.com/photos/41725195@N02/4337625122/ there were a plenty of demolition derbies shown, "regular" ones, but also races with cars, towing camping trailers and reverse-gear-races, mainly with DAFjes.

Hui, that is fun, i guess, as the DAFjes can race backwards as fast as forward.
have been 11 years old, making that experience, with my mothers DAF 44.
the opened door however blocked by our houses gutter pipe
didn´t close backwards, but to crumple instead :O
Fortunately we had DAF en Masse to retrofit red door on white body made fire engine out of it.

At my grandmothers DAF 44 it was opposite: it was read and got a white front hood in its last months.
