Ce se intampla atunci cand se combina imaginatia germanica cu produsele romnanesti...

1-3: Coupe "Schmoz", fabricat la Chemnitz in 1974 cu componente Dacia, VW, Lada si Skoda. Desi multa din tablarie e de origine romaneasca, masina e din punct de vedere tehnic de inspiratie Volkswagen, cu motorul plasat in spate si tractiune tot pe spate. Masina inca exista si recent a fost vedeta unei expositii dedicata masinilor facute artizanal in Germania Democrata.
4-8: Dacia 1300 Pick-up, derivat din 1300 si nu 1302, carosat de o firma anonima din Germania Democrata. Un model cu dorinta de a fi un camper van! In Anglia firma Dormobile facea chestii similare pe baza de Morris Marina si Ford Escort. Circa 1975.
9-11: Dacia Funeral, model conceput ca dric, fabricat cu cativa ani mai tarziu de aceeasi fabrica. Circa 1982. Imi imaginez ca pentru uvreun defunct iubitor de Dacii, ar fi masina ideala pentru ultima calatorie...

In urmatoarele capitole vom aminti si despre modelele, tot din Germania Democrata, pe baza de ARO si de TV.

What happens when German imagination couples with Romanian products...

1-3: Coupe Schmoz, built in Chemnitz in 1974 using bits of Dacia, VW, Skoda and Lada. Although much of the bodywork is Romanian in origin, the read-engined rear-wheel drive configuration belies its Volkswagen origins. The car still exists and was recently featured in a museum exhibition of hand-made East German cars.
4-8: Dacia 1300 pick-up, made from a 1300 not a 1302, bodied by an anonymous East German firm. Clear Ccamper van influences, not unlike what Dormobile was doing to the Morris Marina and Ford Escort at the time. Circa 1975.
9-11: Dacia Funeral, a hearse made several years later by the same works. Circa 1982. I can imagine that for the lover of Dacias this was the only way to make one's final journey...

To follow: East German takes on the ARO and TV.

  1. Pe "Vederi din trecut(Oficiul PTTR Eforie Nord)'' apare in imagine un IMS (GAZ) modificat.
    Cred ca aripile fata si rotile sunt de Pobeda. Masina pare ca are garda mai joasa.
