Drive it! simulates various flooding situations, and tells drivers how to handle them.Vintage: Tempo MatadorThe economic miracle that resurrected West Germany after the Second World War had many manifestations. As the VW Beetle began to mobilize the masses, many small businesses relied on a robust, small truck for shipments and deliveries. From coal merchants to plumbers and glaziers to greengrocers, Germany's upwardly mobile small businessmen swore by the reliability of the Tempo Matador. Businessman Oskar Vidal created the iconic commercial vehicle in 1950. The truck was initially fitted with four-cylinder, 25 hp boxer engines. When that changed, so did the fate of the Matador.
