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.

  1. Jon Gotti called he says that he wants his red Cadillac Coupe DeVille back.And that hot rod the cars used where made in the 1920s and 1930s the orginal style hot rods where made by americans from the late 40s to the 1960s by then Detriot started selling muscle cars and they became the trend many people in the US today have Street Rods which are modern many times replica cars like a 32 Coupe with a modern big block which is what that Dodge is more in the style of a true Hot Rod would be an original car and have an original era modified engine the Ford V-8 flat head being the most popular.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
