Optimistic!
« on: 18 November 2019, 17:45:32 »

Trawling e-bay today[as you do-sorry I can't do linky] I came across a listing for a 1972 Moskvitch 427 estate which under the main heading of the listing called it a "Russian supercar" :o :o You really do have to admire some peoples optimism :D ;D ;D

A mate of mine bought a saloon Moskvitch in 1973  kept it for about 5 years & then traded it in for a Lada Riva estate !
I just couldn't believe his taste in cars he now drives a Zafira, I think the Moskvitch was around the 800 mark the interior was awful had a hideous metal dash.

My Dad had one when I was a nipper and as I recall it was built like a tank.  ::)

It's possible to buy a supercharged Previa... on paper a supercar by virtue of being mid engine and rwd ::)
