TTSMR, did you REALLY never heard of any of these cars?!
You MUST hear something, at least because Skoda is available in TT, and there are some Skoda models in the Tillig's catalog! :smile:

Moskvich is available in TT too, made by Herpa...

Marquette, my first OWN car was old Moskvich-412... Not a bad car; it had a nice engine, copy of the BMW-1500 engine, so it was not very slow... :wink:
It was running faster than any Lada!.. 8-)

And the first car I was driving was the 1959 Volga, it was my grandfather's and father's car. It was looking like 1954 Ford Mainline (BTW there is a Volga model in TT, but the older modification). I think that's the reason why I like the American cars of 1950s... :)
I like the 1947 Ford in the "Back to the Future" film, the Biff Tannen's car... :smile:

I never paid much attention to them as the US guys didnt want me to import any.

Don: the Herpa Moskvich and Volga are rather American-inspired in appearance, so even if not an exact match for a US car, it wouldn't at all look out of place in a 1950s US setting!

Thats what I am thinking. I have enough for my layout.

Willing to share the rest.

The Skoda 105 and 120 cars were sold in Canada for quite a few years.
So you can use it for Canadian or maybe American layout.

@TTSMR: I'd be interested in some of them!

@Arseny: In Canada, Dacia was also sold for one year, and Lada for many years - 1500 (and later versions), Niva, Samara. The 1500-etc and Samaras are all gone off the road, disappeared now, but there are still a LOT of Nivas around, and nobody wants to sell them!

Niva is a good car. It was comfortable enough (especially for 1970s!), and it have good off-road capabilities, it was REAL off-road car. And it was compact and cheap. BTW it is produced until now, as "Lada 4*4".
I want to buy the new model, "Chevrolet-Niva".

...But if we return to TT-scale :) - there are no Samaras in TT, and there is only old Lada-1200, Lada-2101 in TT.
There is Niva in TT, but it is not a fine model...
