The Oldtimer-Gallery is the sole in Russia and the biggest in the Eastern Europe specialized exposition of antiquarian machinery items. The Show is held two times a year, with the latest one to take place on 15-18 September 2011 at the Crocus Expo International Exhibition Center in Moscow. This very exhibition was devoted to an unusual theme of self-made cars collected on the whole territory of the former USSR. The cars used to be widely popular in 1970-80 and are completely unique as many of them exist only as one copy.

In Soviet days it was not easy to become an owner of a car as one needed much money and a lot of patience for that to sweat a long line of people waiting for their turn to get a car. Besides, car assortment left much to be desired. So, it was natural for people to create cars that looked different from those massively produced.

    I’d love to drive a ’67 Dodge Charger with a 426 HEMI motor again. I guess those days are gone forever.

    I like the old little Soviet cars. I’d rather have a selection of them than any of the newer Mercedes. Benz has lost the ball in car design, they all look like streamlined soap dishes. No soul.

    The green rusty car is definitely NOT east german.

    The red&white VW is actually second generation of Transporters, 59-67 and the white one the third, 1968 and onwards. ;)

    Red&white is also a luxury version of Microbus, Sonderbus as the factory called it with roof windows, big roof hatch and luxury interior.

    Very expensive even in Germany at that time, you could almost buy two Beetles with the price of one Sonderbus.
