Simca Aronde

Masina era de vanzare acum cativa ani. Desigur are o poveste fascinanta. Probabil era autoturismul personal apartinand unui personaj important sub comunism. Asta explica numarul cu trei cifre, si marca vestica. Pana rececnt erau multe masini similare in Bucuresti, masini care nu aveau ce cauta intr-o tara comunista dar, totusi, circulau prin capitala. Sper sa fi supravietuit!

This car was for sale a few yers ago. It almost defintiely has an interesting story behind it, probably being the private car of an important Party member, which is hinted at by the Western make and the three-digit license plate. Until recently, Bucharest had many such cars, whose presence may have been unexpected in a Communist country but which, nevertheless, drove up the capital's highways and byways regularly. I wonder if this one has survived!
