I read that Chrysler looked into importing the Oltcit into the USA back in the 70's but decided against it once they saw how bad they really were-too bad even for the company that gave us the Volare!

soviet cars were not cheap. A Lada cost ten years salary of a factory worker.

In 'west' everibody drives V8 5-6liters 2ton cars. We from 'east' drive cars with wooden wheels. Is that is?
Jimmy Bobby Clapper (6 days ago)
Hi Igor.....not everybody from the west drives V8 2ton cars. Many people in the west drive average 4 cylinder cars between 1.2 liters and 2.5 liters. There are plenty of V6 engines and some V8 engines around but most people 'on average' would drive 4 cylinders cars. Out of interest for you, SKODA is a very popular car in the west :)

What is 'western people' ? 3% of total world polulation. I bet some of this cars are well known in countrys you dont know nothing about and you dont want to know. Capitalism sistem is fit for robots,not free humans. Same go for Komunism as we know it.

Tatra was one of the oldest and most advanced and elegant car producers in de world, before communism came and even during the communist time they made great cars. Now they only produce some heavy trucks...

Another excellent video, VR! Thank you very much. I have always enjoyed the Western "orphan" cars, owning something common has never appealed to me. My Grandfather once remarked, "Dayum, Son...everything you got is oblong or obsolete!" That was 40 years ago  : )

Georgian Gojan (15 days ago)
The Oltcit had its name from the city "Olt" in Romania in which it was made and "Cit" because it was made in a collaboration with Citroen,thus resulting Oltcit. There aren't many of them on the streets nowadays,but you can still see some of them in Romania.

I grew up loving most of these cars as a youth in Hungary. Thank you Visioracer for this video, you should do a video on the Zuk and IFA vehicles and trucks at some point

At least the Skoda, was also known in Western Europe - they were sold to West Europe too. :) What was crazy to see, was the Lada, crank started. Wondering if this was able with the Fiat, too (Shiguly was a license product from Fiat 124) ;) - Nice was the funny Fiat 126 - made at poland (at fso factory), and known as "Polsky Fiat". Would like to have a 126 BIS (with little hatchback) :)

Interesting cars, they were made where people could afford them, unlike here where the cars are made in other countries because our government makes the rules so that they are too expensive for many these days. As a result fewer people buy cars here than in the past. I have a masters degree and I have never and probably will never ever be able to buy a new car.

Old joke from the Reagan days: guy in the eastern bloc finally received the news that he has been selected and granted the privilege of being put on the waiting list to buy car. Hey says to the bureaucrat handling the transaction when can I pick it up? Bureaucrat says exactly 7 years from today’s date. Guy says what time? Bureaucrat says what difference does it make seven years from now exactly what time of the day do you pick it up? Guy says well, the plumber is coming in the morning that day…

dan mackintosh (1 month ago)
I'm proud to say, as a British guy, the only ones of these I didn't recognise was the Tatra 613 and the Dacia 1300 (it does look familiar though, Renault design cues?).  I'd happily own any one of these although mainly the late '70s-early '80s Skoda saloons and coupes would be top of the list.

@VisioRacer, the red Vaz being cranked at about 1:30 is/was a local car to me. Registered around the Crewe/Nantwich area of Cheshire through the Chester office of the DVLA going by the registration code.  It's a 1500 and appears to have last been on the road up to March 2015 and then it seems to drop off the database :( Seems to have been a low mileage car, it first appears on the database in 2013 (the database only went online from about 2005 so not sure when it was last on the road then), showing 23,807 miles. I don't see any reason it would vanish from the road, so hopefully it's in dry storage as it looked nice.  Love that colour too, I had a 1986 Skoda 120LSE in a similar shade and loved it.
dan mackintosh (1 month ago)
Further to that, just noticed there's an export marker against the car so maybe it's gone home :) Certainly deserves to be a survivor, lots of these old Soviet era cars/bikes were so cool. I also had a '77 MZ 250 "Supa 5" which I bought with a blown output bearing and damaged case, common as people overtension the chain. I replaced the whole engine with an earlier 4 speed TS250 unit and had miles of fun.

I first saw the GAZ 24 Volga in the TV coverage of the 1980 Moscow Olympic Games, and liked the look of it straight away. I have a 1:43.5 scale model of one, a souvenir of the Soviet Union pavillion at World Expo '88. If I owned one, I would try to shoehorn in a Holden "red motor" inline six. The Fiat 126 was sold in Australia for a few years, under the make/model FSM Niki. They had a reputation for falling on their sides if you tried to corner too fast.

My dad drove me and and my mom home from the hospital in a Škoda 105 but we got a VW Polo Classic soon after for safety reasons (no rear seatbelts in the 105). Nowadays the Škoda and the VW are worth about the same used. Which is about the same amount we sold the 105 back in 2001.

Hemingray1893 (1 month ago)
First, I must say the Volga is actually pretty cool. Secondly, regarding the Tatra's V8, I notice the spark plugs go in the top of the... I'm hesitant to call them valve covers. Is that a flathead, or some sorry imitation of a Hemi? I want to say flathead, but the HP to displacement ratio (100 HP:155CID) makes me want to say overhead valve.
