Phew, I was hoping for that, I saw rare Trabant 1.1 in pictures. The WrakRace (in CZ Autotouchy) is different from what I meant - it was a race across europe in cheap old cars, but they scrapped the cars afterwards. WrakRace is more like demolition derby with road-illegal cars.


Oh, didn;t know you also have race like Złombol. Too bad they are scrapped :( I will hunt some cheap Favorit Pick-up in Czech Republic as soon as I can afford third car.

No, they are not scrapping them. Propably you mistook it with WrakRace :)

Do they scrap the cars at the end? If no, then I dont know about this particular race. Seems interesting.

As we speak about expeditions.. do you know Złombol races? Every year group of 'junky' cars (suggested value up to 1000) join the race across the Europe to collect money from sponsors for orphanages. - zlombol.pl/index.php/en/

Did you see the movie "Trabantem a na konec světa/Trabant vs. South America"? It was a czech expedition, but they invited two Polish guys with Maluch. Neat commercial for first two points of your advantage list ;)
If you didnt see it, I recommend it - trailer


Nope, but it seems very interesting - I'll watch this for sure, thanks!

You cant really expect a safety from older city cars. Trabi doesnt look that bad, but it was most likely crashed in lower speed.

The Trabant probably wasn't able to reach the testing speed, or took too long to get there.

Thaz being said, the Tico's worse, though: www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5MbxSf1bVQ

Well there's only so much such a small car can protect you from.

I would like to hear your opinion (EDIT: and of course fcks too) on Maluch, since it is a big part of Polish car heritage. I personally like that car, much like every car from communism, but unfortunately I havent ridden one.


Yes, it was a good car comparing to its time and circumstances, but choosing it as a daily car today is absolute madness.

It's awfully slow (almost minute to get 100km/h, it's hard to safely enter to crowded roads outside town. It's more than likely you will became a decent car mechanic after spendind a year or two with 126p - it brokes and need maintenance (lubricating, fulfilling oils) very often. But in fact almost every repair is simple even for a beginner. You can demount an engine and rear axle in minutes. Fuel consumption is way too big for its performace (7-8l/100km), you need to tune the carburator from time to time and won;t be shocked if your Maluch eats even 10l/100km if you forgot about that. It has almost no luggage, space in the rear is enough at most for 8yo kid. Sometimes he tries to kill you by weak, easily heating brakes or sudden opening the doors (from mod. 1978, I know the guy who screw this up) - few years ago I almost lost my girlfriend that way entering a corner with 70kmh.. :D

But there are three IMO most important advantages:
1. It's uncredible easy and cheap to repair
2. It performs better in really bumpy roads than some modern "SUV"s
3. Irreplaceable in mountains during winter - you need to just to turn out your car, turn on reverse gear and you will slowly climb on every snowed height ( Few einters ago I was the only one who did this somwhere in Beskid mountains, any other car, even the modern ones failed at most in the middle :D)

oh, and 4. It has nice swap potential - I saw Maluch with several engines like Uno 1.1, Punto 1.2, Yamaha R1 and it;s ride like hell. :D

Few youtube clips:

Awesome amateur rally performance:

...and my favourite classic: REVERSE MALUCH :D

and also I think Tico has no airbag, unlike the Seicento :p I have the 900ccm model and it's great for city driving

Better get a Fiat Cinquecento/Seicento, especially the Sporting version. Looks a heck better and parts would be easier to find in Germany. Well they have less doors but who cares :p


Agree. If you don't need 5dr body choose CC Sporting. I drove CC900 for a week and it's reliable as a typical city car. Incredible visibility in all directions, more space than in Tico, more comfortable seats, quite spacious for its size. The only reason you can choose Tico is you absolutely need 5 doors or you are absolutely out of money. According to polish users of these cars Tico consuming much less fuel:

Factory average fuel consumption/user's average f.c. (min.)/user's average f.c. (max)/user's average f.c. (ecodrive)

-Tico (l/100km) 6.2l Pb (xx lpg)/5.0 (5.8)/6.3 (7.3)/4.2 (5.1) - data from 849 users
-CC900 (l/100km) 5.9 Pb (xx lpg)/6.0 (6.9)/7.8 (8.8)/5.2 (6.0) - data from 255 users
-CC Sporting (l/100km) 6.2 Pb (xx lpg)/6.5 (7.6)/8.8 (9.6)/5.5 (6.5) - data from 79 users

I type also lpg consumption in case if you decide to look after your car in Poland where more than a half of these cars has mounted LPG instalation.

I live in Lower Saxony (Doln Sasko) so it will be hard. :/

The Tico is based on an old Suzuki Alto though, maybe you could get that cheap. It's also more reliable than the Daewoo.

@Desscythe: No, I don't think it was sold here. This car falls into that strange category of cars which were sold in Europe, but were way more common in Eastern Europe. Like the Maruti 800, the Daewoo Nexia/Racer...and the Tico.

I dont know, if you are living close to D/CZ borders, but I could eventually buy it and drive it to your town. There are not very common, but it isnt something ultra rare either, so in used cars dealership there are few.

Well, it's a cheap car; all I need is to get from my job to home and vice-versa. I'm starting out small...
@JFK: no.

I've made up my mind! My first car will be a Tico! It's nice-looking, cheap, fairly reliable and no big loss in case it gets stolen.

Do you know the color you would like to have?

This was actually sold in Germany? Anyway, I would advice to save money and wait until you can buy something decent, but it's your choice after all.
