Zlomnik.pl is a Polish website dedicated to old and not-so-old, interesting and not-so-interesting, cars from the last thirty years of the twentieth century, give or take a few years. Its readers send in pictures of various cars they see around the country for a weekly, give or take a few days, “miks” (mix) post.
While zlomnik.pl completely mixes all of cars together, I like to divide them by their countries of origin. To make things more interesting, seeing as all the cars post are post-war models, I have divided them up into two major groups; Axis Powers and the Allied Powers In the past we have seen Japanese and Italian cars that are living and dying in Poland. We then attacked the German cars by splitting them into the post-war configuration of West Germany and East Germany.
Today we look at the first of the Allied Forces, which also happens to be the last to get involved in the conflict, the United States. American cars have been mostly absent from the streets of Poland until the early 1990’s when their importation became popular due to the low cost and abundance of used cars in the United States. The most fascinating thing about these cars is the random selection of makes and models. One would think that fuel efficient, or reliable, or large status cars would be the most popular, but no.
Yes, we have looked at American cars in Poland before, but this is an all new post, and with all new pictures. Big thanks to Zlomnik.pl and all its readers.
