Than how many of those do you see?

Pobjeda has pretty long history. Rumors say it is a copycat of Ford.
Than the Ford is a copycat of Volvo

Strange original report - as I understand it, the pump (and fuel filter) are inside the gas tank, so it cannot leak to the exterior.

Good news that the tank was replaced under warranty.

Cool restoration, although I would add an element.
My first days of driving were on Pobjeda twin -Warszawa
I guess in this setup nobody would mind rescuing occupants from gas fumes.
Like mouth to mouth rescue...

I've seen those, its the copy of the copy of the copy.
That girl wouldn't be able to drive that car 100 ft. Or at least stop it. Driving cars like that really makes you appreciate the modern comforts, like power steering and mirrors.
