Some Russian tunning. ZAZ

Posted on July 16, 2007 by


During the Soviet times Zaporozhets (or ZAZ) was an inexpensive Ukranian automobile for ordinary people. It was famous for petrol heating in salon. Nowadays it has become a real rare car and one of the symbols of Soviet era. Probably that's why some street racers and professional designers like to take old ZAZ models and convert into new racing cars. Some transformations look really amazing.

    The orange one from the last photos is nice ;-)

  2. 1) ZAZ has never had all-wheel drive

    2) at least 2 of pics are a nasty photoshop

    That car with text “LAPUAN UA” is from Finland. It means Lapua´s racing drivers.

    Air cooled engine, like on the old VWs?

    Air cooled engine autos are true “people’s cars”– very easy to work on the engine, like a big lawnmower engine.

    That’s awesome! But they aren’t that rare. And lot’s of those aren’t zaps. I love the red ‘Sparco’ zap with the engine made of spare parts. haha.

    My dad’s first car was a used Zaparozhets.

    That old thing was rusted to the core. It’s wheel fell off when he was driving it home. Thankfully there was a towtruck nearby. (Those things were RARE back then, my dad had a REAL stroke of luck there.)

    Either way he patched his up, spray-painted it green (by filling a bottle with green paint, poking holes in it and putting a hose to it increasing the pressure inside.), installed Lada signal lights in the back and it lasted for a few years until he reluctantly sold it to a good friend.

    He still has fond memories of the old gal.
