Over the years we have been fortunate
in finding very rare (to us at least) literature from
countries throughout the world for our collection. Some
of the most interesting and colorful literature comes
from places you might least expect Russia, Czechoslovakia,
Poland... The cars and trucks are nearly always compact,
but the literature makes them seem larger than life.
Perhaps even more interesting than
the cars themselves are the lifestyles that they depict.
In retrospect, what I would have thought in the 1960s
about people in "Iron Curtain" countries and
what they were doing probably had little basis in reality
(think heavy fur coats and hats and Doctor Zhivago).
Brochures portray them going to the airport in their
vans, shopping, picnicking at the lake and going to
parties just like you and I were doing. Here
is your opportunity to immerse yourself in these cultures
through their literature:
