all japanese cars fall apart. thats why the u.s. put so much money in ford, gmc, european cars, and spase ships.


Whoa there buddy. Japanese cars and old Soviet cars are the toughest most resilient cars, EVER. My grandpa has an old Soviet car that has never broken down in 22 years. We also have a Honda that has never borken down in 16 years. Ford and GMC are perhaps the worst made cars in the Universe. Theya re amde to assist Capitalism by falling apart every 4 years. As for spase ships....well, I do not know about that.
When we hang the Capitalists they will sell us the rope we use.

Since the thread has been resurrected anyway, I have a question about the 603.

Quote:
The heart of the new car was the newly developed 603 engine by Jiri Klos, its advanced specification was 75mm bore and 72mm stroke (2545cc) air-cooled V8 with a single centre camshaft and hemispherical combustion chambers.

Am I to understand that this engine does not require oil?

No, it *definately* requires oil! The oil helps with the cooling. What it does not have is any water cooling, so no water pumps, radiators and all that stuff. Here's a picture of a Tatra 603 aircooled engine:

Hope that's interesting for you!

Why are all the commie-mobiles so small? How many people could fit in one (take the Zaz-969m for example).

I realized my mistake later that day but didn't get back to edit my post. Oil would at least be necessary for lubrication. That's indeed very interesting, though. I doubt Americans could even DREAM of an air-cooled V8.

What kind of mpg do you get in that thing, anyway?

True, especially with the parking spaces! Long live the Trabbie! In Hungary pretty much 1 car in 4 or 5 is a Trabant, Hungarians love it!


Here's an interesting story from back in the cold war days from my father who grew up in Hungary and was visiting his relatives in Romania. There was a Romanian car (a copy of a British model), that was laughed at by all Hungarians. In the factories, instead of carrying the chaise on a conveyor belt, they (listen to this) covered the ground with oil and dragged it along with a tractor, no joke
! Than the Hungarians found that pretty much every second car, straight from the factory, was rusty
! When my father looked into it (he was always very fond of cars and machines) instead of storing the car frames in a warehouse, the Romanians stored them in open fields
! In the instruction manual, it actually said that to replace a certain part, you should go into the forest, cut down a small tree, cut it into a thin cylinder, and use that for the missing part
! When the cars finally arrived in Hungary, they had to take the cars apart and put them together again to put them into reasonable roadworthy conditions. Romanian Communism…

Not bad, the shape a concept are a slight bit un-extraordinary. I prefer the older models.

In response to the originator of this thread...
I too love Eastern Bloc cars... I have lived in the U.S. & can appreciate the merits of cars from both regions... (As well as loving Easter Bloc automotive technology, I have a passion for 1965-75 Mopar muscle).

Your 603 (if that's where you sourced the engine bay pic) is very clean looking. My compliments...

My old man had a moskvitch back in the mid 70's. I was only 3 or 4 years old so I know nothing about them at all, except for memories of what it looked like... it was a big white chrome-grilled thing, with sort of sad looking big front lights... Not sure of it's age exactly, but it ran an old "L" plate... I can remember searing my thighs on teh seats on summer when I wore shorts :o) Despite this, I loved the thing & was gutted when we chopped it in for a Japbox the same as everyone else on our street... even though I'm sure we were the subject of ridicule, tearing around the place in our "commie car"...

Still, nowadays I could afford to own most modern cars (except for those costing silly money), and youy can keep the lot of them. I'd love an old 70's Moskvitch of my own...
