1926 Stutz in 1983

Intr-o serie de fotografii aratand cartierul Uranus inainte de demolarile din anii 80 apare aceasta antebelica. O aparitie rara penru 1983: desi inca existau masini antebelice pe strazile capitalei, majoritatea erau din anii 30 si in stare cel putin precara. Surpriza a venit totusi afland ce era masina: e vorba de un Stutz AA Vertical Eight Phaeton din 1926, o masina ultra-luxoasa si rara, fara discutie una din cele mai importante masini existente in Romania comunista, din pacate exportata dupa 1990. Ma intreb unde se afla acum.

Cu aceasta ocazie, prezint masina in mai multe ipostaze...

In a series of photos showing the Uranus quarter of Bucharest before demolition, I found this pre-war car. It's rare to see one as late as the 80s: although there were still a handful of pre-war cars on the streets, most were from the 30s and in a fairly precarious condition. The big surprise, though, was finding out what it was. It's a 1926 Stutz AA Vertical Eight Phaeton, a rare and highly luxurious car, without a doubt one of the most important cars in Communist Romania, one which was sadly exported in 1990. I wonder where it is now.

Here's the car in other images from the period...
