Invalidka SZD. Some history and tunning

It is true to say that invalids in Soviet Union were a kind of defective people in many respects. For example, they were not able to drive ordinary cars, and had to use special vehicles for invalids, called in public "Invalidka". The cycle-car SZD (Invalidka) with the IJ motorbike engine was the development of Serpukhovksy car factory. It was given to invalids by local authorities for a fixed period of time
during 70-s and 80-s, though it's production stopped only in the late 90-s. Probably the idea of free cars for invalids was not so bad, but the design and characteristics of SZD left much to be desired. After the jump one will find some historical photos of SZD and the video, where some street racers converted Invalidka into something that looks too fast and too furious.

In USSR Gaz-24 (Volga) was a dream of every soviet citizen. This luxurious automobile was being produced in Gorkovsky car factory for the middle and upper classes in 70-s and 80-s.

The snowmobile Sever-2 (North 2) was developed in 1959 in Helicopter Design Office of N. I. Kamov. It was created from the legendary Soviet automobile Pobeda (Victory). Firm skis and powerful aircraft engine AI-14 (260 horse-powers) made possible to move on snow or ice at a speed of 30-35 kilometers per hour. Sever-2 was
able to function at extreme temperatures, about 40-50 degrees centigrade. These snowmobiles delivered passengers and mail through the various areas of the Soviet Union, such as Siberia, the Far East and Kazakhstan. They also serviced settlements along the rivers Amur, Lena, Ob' and Pechora.

Some Russian tunning. ZAZ

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.
