In the past we have showcased many older and interesting that are living and dying in Poland. We had French cars, American cars, a mix of weird cars, and who could forget the amazing classic car rallies? All of those images came as courtesy of of the readers and publishers of two very awesome websites, zlomnik.pl and stadobaranow.pl. Check out these websites, even if just look at the pictures.
These cars, and their conditions, just fascinate me and it looks like they fascinated you hoons, too. Therefore we shall now continue with the series. Being that we are in Poland, we’ll re-start the series by looking at cars made by the Axis powers: Germany, Japan, and Italy. Because the amount of awesome/crappy/interesting German cars was a bit overwhelming, I split them up into their post-war origins of East and West Germany. Enjoy.

How does that even happen?
European Ford were manufactured in U.K., Romania, Croatia, Belgium, Turkey, Germany, Spain, and Russia. Because the headquarters are in Germany, I included all Fords here.
Is that a Unimog? Awesome ambulance. Picture may have been taken outside of Poland, but who cares.
How is it that this is sold right beside an S-class?
No plates, it’s probably its final resting place.
No door handles.
Is that a beach chair frame?
The Opel looks a lot like a Chevy.
Had bad ass potential.
No bad ass potential.
The wagon that zigs.
Where was this when I was getting married!?
Jay (now at Autoweek along with Blake, damn sellouts) reviewed a similar one.
I thought that the Fox name was only a U.S. market thing.
Looks like a hatchback but it’s not a hatchback.
E34 – every gangster-wanna-be had one, including me. And I loved it!
Because everyone has a VW bus.
Rot Bug! Maybe photographed in Germany – don’t matter, cool.
This should not be this rusted! I have seen a same era S-class in the same condition in U.S.
What’s up with this pig nose?
Hmmm.. Euro bumpers… drool…
FYI, there are rednecks all over the world.
Five bucks says that all it needs is some air in tires and it’s good for another million miles.
Orion, Sirra’s less sexy sister.
Base model Sierra is amazingly unattractive despite being the same damn car.
They don’t have T.J. Maxx in Poland, they have T.K. Maxx. Hey, look, a Jeep “Cherokee”!
Again, not sure if actually German.
It looks like a hatchback and this time it is a hatchback!
My uncle had one just like that. He drove it from West Germany to Poland with some shitty tractor on the back.
Two handles on its sliding door!
There is a special place in my hearth for two-door longroofs.
Not sure what this is…
Ugh, them wheels.
German-import fire van?
Rust does not discriminate.
Another two-door longroof.
Looks too pretty.
New and old.
