May I suggest you track down the recently shown 'War Factories' on Volkswagen and the VW beetle? (Assumes you have access to UK freeview).

The VW factory /Beetle offered to both UK and US car manufacturers who rejected it. So factory put back into operation by the British Army to provide (i) German people with work to aid rebuilding the country and reduce risk of instability (ii) the British Army with a cheap and reliable vehicle for post-war occupation duties.
