De pe picasaweb, un grup de studenti cu masina, in perioada 1977-1980. Pe atunci antebelicele nu eau extrem de cautate; exista nucleul miscarii automobilelor de epoca dar foarte multe masini antebelice erau considerate drept "vechituri", exact precum situatia masinilor din anii 60, pe care le gaseai ruginind in spatele oricarui bloc, pana prin 2005. Deci o antebelica, care se putea cumpara si cu cinci mii de lei in stare de functionare cand o Dcie noua era 70000, ar fi fost o masina perfecta pentru un student... Ma intreb daca acest grup de tineri arhitecti apreciau acest superb Opel Kapitan decapotabil pentru ca era ieftin sau pentru ca, cu liniile sale transatlantice in stil Art Deco, avea un stil cu totul aparte.
A photo from 1977-80, found on picasaweb, showing a group of students posing with their car. Back then, pre-war vehicles were not thought much of: although there was the nucleus of a classic car movement, most people considered them to be old wrecks, which is exaclty what they thought about 1960s cars (plenty of which could be found rusting in every suburban car park) until about 2005. So a pre-war car, which could be bought for as little as five thousand lei in running order (a new Dacia being 70000), could represent an ideal car for a student. I wonder if this group of young arrhitects liked their splendid Opel Kapitan convertible merely because it was cheap, or becasue they appreciated its transaltantic Art deco lines...
