@ Mental: If I didn't know where the AWS Shopper was from, I'd guess it was Chinese.

LOL. Really it looks like it was built by resourceful Russian villager in his shed. I would never suppose this is a production car, AND from capitalist world. :D

I actually wonder, what this car is supposed to be? A van?.. or something close to that... Anyway, communist RAF microbus from Latvia beats this capitalist grief all the way. :D

@ Iggz: LOL, the wheels and tires look like they came from the camera crane. The hood looks like it's made from painted plywood, and the body panels look like they were made from carved pieces of a port-o-potty, the windows look like plexiglass, the headlights look like they were swiped from an old golf cart, the turn signals look like they were stolen from one of those little kiddie rides you see in the mall, the bumper looks like a handrail from a nursing home bathroom, the tires look like they come from a wheelbarrow, and the mirror looks like a bicycle accessory. This car looks like it was built in a junkyard.
@ FastestLaps or any other administrator: Please don't delete this car, it's hilarious! LMHO XD

It has a 300 CC engine, that is the smallest engine I've ever heard of being put into a car, 13 horsepower, it looks like something the Top Gear hosts built. HAHA :D

As far as I know AWS was in Berlin.
But I do not know if it was on the West or the East Side.

Actually Skoda is VW quality really as same crucial parts are being used. Not sure I should be adding Zaporozhez - fastest lap that thing has done so far was when being pushed to the garage for repairs )) by the way Volga's are still highly popular cars in Cuba due to low cost parts and being easy to repair. Some of those are 50 years old and still running..I heard that Soviets secretly bought Ford engines imported from US for their Volga vehicles..could be just a conspiracy theory though.

Yes, the ultimate Russian car is a LADA. Volga is a luxury Russian one. Then you have a crappier Ukrainian low cost car named Zaporozhez. Yugoslavians have the Yugo and finally owned by VW nowadays is the famous Skoda (used to be a little worse quality prior communist breakdown) ..

If this comes from Western Germany, it is a shame for the capitalist world... I can name you better communist vehicles (in terms of power and looks at least) :D

@ Mental
Eastern Germans didn't use such optimistic colors as orange. They used diarrhia brown or puke green for their cars (trabant, wartburg). This is a Western German hippie car creation I m afraid..

No man, now this is "WTF?!" LOL, no comments...

Was it made in Eastern Germany? This thing has communist roots, I can feel it!
