Eastern cars weren't cheaper ! They were much more expensive than cars from the west, despite being much worse quality wise. Because you had to wait up to 10 years to get a new car, used cars were more expensive than new ones. Just ask someone, who lived around than. You are obviously to young for it to know. But otherwise very nice video ...

All of the Communist era cars sucked(even though Jay Leno owns one). But the female East European computer voice was much nicer to listen to than the usual"Western" female computer voices. Fantasizing about a lifestyle no one living in the West, at that time, had to endure-Fortunately...Still cannot buy a SKODA in the USA, porque? How come back in the "old Communist days" the only "Communist" cars we could buy in the USA was the YUGO GV? Was that some kind of weird reverse psychological Cold Warfare?

The Russians could of built a MIG style Ferrari Auto if there was competition or markets. but produced poor consumer goods, ie cars. It was not that they did not have the skill or engineering, they did not have the incentive for free enterprise and competition. Most of their consumer goods were junk.
Fred Jaminson (27 days ago)
The Lada and the Volga are Russian and drive on 100 proof Vodka power.

Is it true that back in the "old communist days" vodka was actually cheaper than gasoline?
Mark O'Cain (28 days ago)
LOL I'm a little dubious about the power and torque figures for the GAZ Volga V8. even if this car had something like 110 kw and 350nm , the car itself would be a deathtrap LOL

The one with the crank ignition sure would suck to have on a rainy day but on the positive side, you would never have to worry about having a bad starter. Thanks for posting this vid. One thing I can say about these cars is that they sure have personality.

When travelling through the Eastern block at the end of the 70's, I came across and rented a very sturdy rear engined aircooled v4 Russian made car with petrol burning furnace as a heater which nobody would ever freeze in Siberia, it had on or off and would slowly cook your legs and feet. However its 4 speed transmission was an inverse H pattern. I actually like it, good city car. I remember somebody nicknamed it Stalin's Revenge, something sounding like (zaspori... ska)? Can you imagine up to a 7 year wait to get your order delivered, It was less for a Trabant. (LoL)

You forgot the Zaparozhets, although it probably never made it east of Baltics. Had a relative who owned one, I rode in the back seat when I was about 9 or 10, I remember saying something like "I don't want to get into this car again". The noise and vibrations were insane. My dad had a Volga at one point, it looked impressive.

I turned 16 in 1980..... so all the great muscle cars were (1964 - 74) everywhere... cheap!!! I had a 69 GTX.... the owner before me took the 440 out and dropped in a 426 Max Wedge a modified cam , headers and a holly 780 double pumper carburetor.... Around my parts (north ofAtlanta GA) it was deemed stock It would run low 9’s in the 1/8.... And low 7’s with nitro in the 1/8 mile Was a beast.... should of never sold it😟

I'm from former Yugoslavia(Serbia) and in our country situation was a lot different and people had the money and freedom to drive whatever they wanted. But I remember you could recognize hard line communists because they always owned those awful soviet pieces of shit that were usually standing on the parking lot broken all the time. Only socialist car that was good for anything was Crvena Zastava until they started producing Yugo.

Cool vid, interesting info! I really didn't know about some of those vehicle's existence. OK, I was aware of the Trabant badge/name & how truly sad they were, but the fact that there were even SADDER examples of "communist cars" that were produced had me taken aback. Cut 'n' glue is one thing, rusting on the assembly line would seem to be worse in my book. The Fiat, I know, is actually what eventually became the Yugo here in the States. My fav joke on them was, "Why did they put a rear window defroster on the Yugo? . . . To keep your hands warm when you had push it during Winter!" I DO remember one of the Yugo print ads published in car mags touting something to the effect that they "made sure to ship over plenty of spare/repair parts BEFORE delivering any assembled units for sale". This, so they wouldn't have to wait for parts to be shipped & be prepared for good customer service in the event you needed repairs. Yeeeeeeah. . . right. If there's ANY group of American voters that would have ONLY ONE SINGULAR REASON to resist the DMC in general, but ESPECIALLY their shift to socialism & its INEVITABLE evolution into communism, it would be. . . THE ENTIRE CAR COMMUNITY! Everybody from the cr*p/bullsh*t spewing ricers & posers, to hardcore builders, to design & engineering geeks should realize that this list is EXACTLY what we'll have to choose from if American goes down that route.

I grew up in East Germany and know all the cars except the Syrena and the Oltcit. Never saw one and I never heard about it. Moskvitch and Saporoshez are missing in the list. We had a Trabant and later a Skoda 105.
Yash Manjushri (1 month ago)
Pardon Mister, but you probably would have forgotten the great Lada Niva, which is still in production and does very well offroad even when compared to much more modern concepts!
These cars are neat, whats sad is there is a huge movement in the US where virtually all democrats, especially the young ones want to turn the US into a communist state...back to an era when having a fuel gauge in side the car (or at all) is a luxury

The UK got many of these cars in the 1970's. When I was a child in our first house, our neighbour had a yellow Skoda 110. In our next house from 1977 there was a guy four doors up who had a yellow Moskovitch 412 eastate. On the other side of the cul-de-sac was a man who had a navy blue Wartburg 353. A friend of mine had a blue 1988 FSO 125p. He took me home in it once. It was comfortable to sit in and had a good heater. It met its end when the wind caught a heavy gate and slammed into it while he was driving. He drove it for a little while after, but soon got rid of it. While at Uni, a flatmate of mine had a white Yugo three door hatch. I believe it used to belong to his mum, and it was very well looked after and never broke down. I believe the Moskvitch was an official import for a time, but the FSO and Lada as well as the Yugo were available for many years. I collected brochures, and believe it or not have these three makes represented there. In 1993 the cheapest Lada "Riva" was an inexpensive car in Britain costing about 4,500 pounds. I liked the fact it had a warranty and I'm sure it would have lasted well if looked after properly.

The Fiat 126 was known as the Niki in Australia Fiat being an Italian acronym for Fabrica Industria Automobili Turin. Given their reputation for unreliability here, many Aussies said it was short for Fix It Again Tony
