Not so long time ago the exhibition of Oldtimers was held in Moscow, Russia. It was the 19th exhibition and anniversary too, because 10 years ago Ilya Sorokin opened his first exhibition in Moscow and in just 10 years his collection became the biggest in Eastern Europe.This time visitors could see unusual and rare exemplars and I would like to take a quick look on the most interesting models.
The first one is K 12/20, maybe the oldest vehicle in the whole exhibition. It was made in the Russian Empire in 1911. There were made about 600 cars, but only one was possible to survive through times and rough Russian history.
The fastest car on the exhibition was Jaguar E-Type made in Great Britain in 1970. This red Jaguar is still in very good condition, this year it won the first prize in Rally Monte-Carlo Historic.
The most legendary car was Moskvitch 412. Well it's not exactly the same car which took part in famous rally London-Mexico in 1970. Moskvitch finished 12 of 96. However this car is absolutely detailed clone of legendary Moskvitch.
The most interesting car in engineering terms was French Laffly/Lincorne V15T of 1939. This biaxial artillery truck has a unique suspension which consists of 12 universal joints. As many military vehicles this car has some problems with design, but we believe it is very functional car.
Besides there was BMW 328 of 1938 which is believed to be the most successful car of those time. This car brought fame and popularity to BMW wining more than 150 races in various races.
The most unique was Kiev-Sport, made in the USSR in 1959. It is the only exemplar that survived through times and was found somewhere in Russia in such dead-alive condition. Let's hope next time we see the car it will be in better fit.
