WARSAW RETRO VEHICLES
Polish Fiat 125-p is simply a legend of Polish motorization from the communist era. Everybody knows how it looks like but few can tell about its history. What is so special about this Warsaw must see?
First car was ready to buy in November 1967. Soon, it became a symbol of prosperity of communist authorities and an element of PRL period pop-culture. It even became a movie star showing up in TV series ,,Zmiennicy” and in video-clips of Polish pop stars. What’s more, countries like Germany, France or UK were willingly buying Fiats in 70’s and 80’s. Overall, country produced almost 1,5 million Polish Fiats. Nowadays, we can find original cars in numerous museums around the country, being objects of desire for car lovers.
If you visit Warsaw, you simply need to get into this car and feel inimitable atmosphere of good old times!
Jelcz 043 was a real king of Polish roads during the 60’s. However, everybody know the car under its nickname – cucumber. It’s due to its characteristic, oval and oblong shape. It became a real hit just after first cucumber entered Polish roads. Not only it was cheap, but also “very” capacious having seats for 8 passenger and a lot of space for luggage. Cucumber still has numerous fans in Europe and having a ride in such vehicle it’s a real privilege!
