Rewind to Germany in the mid-1960s, the mid-1970s and the mid-1980s

We’re traveling back to Germany in the mid-1960s, in the mid-1970s again in the mid-1980s. More specifically, the pictures below (and we don’t have higher-res versions, sorry) were taken at the Helmstedt-Marienborn border crossing between East and West Germany.

What car(s) can you identify in the images below? What one(s) would you most like to have in your garage today?
