b) Three rudders becomes three people

 c) The head of the man become car number 3 while his skirt becomes the Citroen. 

  d) Perhaps the support block becomes the "The End" sign.

e) Kestrel head becomes a tire, while the segments of white become surrounding people, and then the white segments also inspires the white bubble car.

  f) Skirt becomes blue Citroen and back of car 7

g) The head of the Oryx becomes car number 2 while its horns become the cars behind it
