Welcome to the exhibition of antiquarian and self-made machinery items that took place in Moscow.
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.
This KD is one of 6 self-made cars created in the period from 1963 to 1969. Its body was made of fiberglass reinforced plastic.
Brothers Anatoly and Vladimir Scherbinin decided to build a sports carÂ GTSCH. The car was supplied with a two-seated bodywork of the “Gran Turismo” (hence the name – GT of Shcherbin). GTSCH was powerful and fast. The car weighs 1,250 kg. Due to a powerfulÂ motor it can travel with the speed of up to 150 km/h.
The body of the car that has never been made consists of fiberglass reinforced plastic.
The body of the ‘Teremok’ camping trailer was made of wood and plywood.
There is a place inside to accommodate beds and a kitchen.
