More pedantry from me - your 'Moskvitch' pickup/box van and combi are in fact IZHs.

 

However, you found an FSO with a Fiat badge so all is forgiven. 8)

 

Also, the green ZAZ appears to be sporting Wartburg 1300 rear lights. :?

I'm just about to put something in my spotted thread for you, Joe.

Ooh, thanks Tayne! Quite a learning curve, this thread!

The Oz ones have a different styling treatment around the lights - Seat Malaga at the front; back like a Hyundai Excell, whereas your Ukranian one looks decidedly Japanese.

Nice, a V8 Rover 75 is top of my bucket list.

 

I checked out a couple of combinations of the plate, there is an '03 plated one that is on a SORN and is a 2.5. This one is an '05 4.6 V8.

Just been having a trawl through your thread and had a major blast from the past! The Birkie Beast was built for my dad by his mate Jimmy Reid of Birkhill what must be 30 years ago. Deutz 4litre diesel powering 8 hydraulic motors. Controlled with two little levers and a steering wheel. Great to see it again.

I'll post your points in the morning.

 

I took the picture as I'd never seen that logo before and the car didn't have any name badges. Do you think it was made in Romania?

 

First class stamp, please :mrgreen:

 

IIRC Daewoos were indeed made in Romania, in the old Oltcit factory. But I think production started after the Racer was replaced by the marvellous* Nexia. So I reckon the car in the picture was a quality* South Korean product.

 

Interestingly*, that old Daewoo logo looks like a rip-off version of the Pontiac logo, and the Racer was sold as the 'Pontiac LeMans' (oh, the blasphemy !) in Septic-land.
