A fascinating selection of sketches setting out the development of a series of mini-cars on the basis of the Dacia 500 "Lastun". I am not sure of the exact era, but they seem to be from the mid-80s, the details on the cars being very similar to the pre-production Lastuns. The cars in picture 1 (extended hatchback) and 9 (buggy) were certainly built, the extended Lastun being presented in 1989, including in the Autoturism magazine. It's clear that the ambition was huge - even stretching to an electric buggy. The reality, sadly, was to fall far short...
