I’ve already got a custom-van project and a basket-case Toyota 20R-powered Sprite project, but what I really want is a genuine, red-flag-waving Warsaw Pact machine to cruise around Denver. I don’t mean any Lada, either— it’s got to be a genuine, designed-and-built-in-the-USSR car, not a Fiat clone! Fortunately, I have a car-freak friend in the Czech Republic who can get such a machine into a shipping container in Bremerhaven for a reasonable price, so all that would remain for me would be to negotiate the Kafkaesque maze of registering the thing in Colorado. How hard could it be?

I build my own cars and have friends who do the same. Two of them have built ca 10 each. I’m doing my third. The first was a 1975 Plymouth Valiant that my son found in a breaker’s yard. I bought it for € 450, paid € 452 to immatriculate it and then nearly € 40K to completely rebuild it. It has a slant 6 with performance parts from Australia and coil-over front and rear suspension, with a Strange Engineering limited-slip differential and 4 wheel Wilwood disc brakes. The interior is redone in leather.

The second car is a 1981 Triumph TR7 with a 140hp 16v Sprint engine, also with 4 wheel discs and limited-slip. It just needs some interior work to complete.

The third is a Moskvitch 412 (actually, an IZH 412) that I’m rebuilding from a 4-door to a 2-door (slightly lowered roof and steeper windscreen angle. A tuned engine is in the making (1.7l, Volga pistons, cylinder sleeves, valves, valve springs and a custom cam made in Finland). I’m installing a rebuilt Lada 5-speed transmission and rear axle with limited-slip and 4 wheel discs (all [somewhat unreliable] soviet tech. I hope to get a 65% increase in hp with Solex carbies and, later, I’ll add a turbo with Opel fuel injection. It won’t qualify for racing in the Moskvitch League or SU class but I can still race as an independent.

Cars like these are hopeless money pits. But it’s fun to test one’s engineering skills. And they attract a good bit of attention too.
