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 car 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 powerful 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.
Some people wanted their cars to remind of foreign vehicles that were impossible to purchase that time.
The Buggy Solo model was created in 1980 by Scherbinin brothers.
Pangolina of 1983 looks like the one depicted at turbo chewing gum stickers.
This is the only model left.
The Yuna 1982 was created by Natalia and Yuri Algebraistovy and reshaped during the next 30 years. It looks quite modern and nice even today.
