    Someone needs to manufacture the car on the right. It’s a beauty.

  2. As a proud person of the Polish persuasion (on my dad’s side of the family) it’s nice to see Polish people featured in a positive light! Some of us Poles DO have a certain amount of know-it-all and basic ingenuity! Thanks, Mark. This is fun to look at.

    PS – this feature reminds me of the situation in Cuba, where ancient cars (from before Castro’s time) are cobbled together and kept running even today, despite all laws of physics and common sense. Perhaps the custom hot rod craze of the 1960s didn’t start in Southern California, but in Poland.

      And, quite often, using lawnmower motors. Dishwasher, even.

    the three-wheeler with the rear wing and rudder steering that goes 100 mph is bananas.  just…  bananas.

      Yes, I would salute it, as I gave it a rather wide berth while it passed me on the freeway.
