    I've been away from the forum for quite a while now, but I have been busy. I still haven't got a Trabant but I did buy something East Bloc - a 1952 Tatraplan. Very exciting!

    It drives like a 1930s truck but it's bloody marvellous!!

    Hi. It has a 1.9 litre four cylinder boxer engine. A lot like a VW engine really.

    Air-cooled V8 motor was in Tatra 603 AND 613.
    Does Anyone know what happened to the UK upgraded 613's??

    That's a very good looking machine. Never seen or heard of one before.

    If I lived in the U.K., I can't imagine the things I would be hauling back from East Europe!

    Cool! My crazy friend wants one of those...

    If I recall the predecessor to the postwar Tatra was known as a secret weapon to kill high ranking Nazis. It seems Nazis has a fondness for both the car and aggressive driving which made the oversteer deadly. Much better than the modern “punching nazis in the face” moral question... pack a Tatra full of nazis and let them loose in the twisty mountain roads!
