Moskovitch must be unique. Not just eastern bloc, other cars and trucks as well. Posted on another forum a lot of us use :)

WOWSERS :shock: The Moskvich van and pick-up must be incredibly rare.

 

I would have thought they are most likely the only UK market survivors...

Oh dear..... I've never been this excited.... Ooops!!! Too excited!!!

 

I need to get the full story of these cars & will check out the other website to find out more. I would commit serious bank fraud for those Moskies! And a Daf... And a Wartburg...

 

Clearly I've just died and gone to heaven!!!

Gosh!

 

I, too, would invest actual money in one of those Moskviches. A collective rescue effort has already been discussed between myself and Comrade Andrew353w.

 

I'm not well-versed in the other forum, though. Can anyone extract some contact information?

 

Yours in the name of democratic socialism,

I thought it was about time I reported back on this shitehoard.

 

The Moskvich 434 raper-van has been added to the Museum of Ideological Alignment - and it's very good indeed (reflected in the ludicrous sum I spunked on it).

 

Observe:

The 434 redneck pickup is far beyond restoration, but will shortly be heading to Moscow for cutting and shutting. The side not pictured on the previous page of this thread has dissolved entirely.

 

Most of the cars here are in a very bad way. The Skoda van is definitely saveable - but at £1000, I'm out. There's also a Wartburg Tourist in eminently restorable condition for £750 (not the one pictured - this is a complete shitbasket).

 

Let's energise the strengthening and development of the party and the revolutionary ranks and spur a fresh upsurge in the construction of the Socialist economy!

Epic work comrade :D:D

 

My uncle ran a brand new one of these as a builders hack in the early seventies. It was the start of a succession of second hand Escort vans...
