FSO Polonez


via Douglas Nicol


One of the hunks of junk to come from the old Warsaw Pact. This particular car originated in Poland. Rumours that the company used old T-55 tank chassis as the basis for the car have never been confirmed or denied. Heavy, ugly, and extremely tacky. Perhaps the only thing in its favour is that it was almost as durable as an old Volvo.

It seems that FSO tried to break into a perceived 'luxury' car market. Did they use an American limo as the basis for their vehicle, or even a Russian Zil? No, they added a bit onto the already existing Polonez resulting in this bizzare looking automobile.
