love the plate. OSMIVLC means 8cylinder in czech = osmiválec
Kevin, I agree completely….the cars, the Videos…all are truly wonderful and interesting in their own way but for me…after viewing these wonderful videos and stories….it has to be the people behind them…how does this Mr. Greenstein know what he does, where and how did he come upon the skills. I am building my new workshop and have been working on my old 914 for more than a few years but for sure I will never have the skills these people have and that is okay. My first post but have been viewing these great short stories for quite a while….great… Read more »
Just wanted to point out that the first car to which the “tear drop” shape was applied and pattented was built by romanian engineer Aurel Persu in 1922.
Another (Dutch) T 87 video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WiNAaz8UNt0
Guys like Mr. Greenstein are the true vintage. Forget the wonderful old cars, jukeboxes, motorcycle, and old Czech army uniforms, those are great. But Mr. Greenstein is the one I like to see, to hear, and to know how he can be so good at so many things; how did he get so clever with his hands, how does his brain retain all this mechanical knowledge, how does he speak so eloquently, and finally, how did he learn to pronounce Czech words?
Sorry, but I have to say it. The 1st car to ever be designed in a wind tunnel was the Lancia Aprilia. I’M SORRY! I JUST TOO MUCH LANCIA! :p
Jake you forgot the Tatra T77 which preceded T87 and the Lancia Aprillia by a few years. In any case it is splitting hairs over it. But have a Budvar and enjoy your beautiful Lancia – Na zdraví!
Didn’t this car contributed more to the demise of German Nazis by killing officers on regular basis? Love the car, as usual, a great video, too!
The ‘evil’ cross between a Volkswagen Beetle and a Bugatti Atlantic!
Yeah but the Beetle was based on Tatras
Tatra. Love ehm! Both trucks and cars. They still seem to lack the respect/recognition they deserve in my opinion. They really where ahead of their time and have made some staggering technical marvelous machines. Their air cooled engines where fantastic. They had V10 and V12 air cooled diesel truck engines that stoot their test of time up into this millenium. Independend suspension on trucks, pioneered on their cars well before anyone thought of such an idea.
The music, the car, the guy, the story, what a wonderful composition.
Thank you Petrolicious and thank you Mr. Greenstein
My thoughts exactly.
Its videos like this that i come to Petrolicious everyday and i think we can all agree the car hobby could use a bit more people like this in it. I am also into the more unusual and oddball like cars the world has to offer and I think the Tatra fits the bill quite nicely. Its really a shame when you ask people about innovative car makers they usually give you Ferrari, Lotus, and maybe even GM in some cases which is fine but its really sad that Tatra is always out of the picture.
Mr. Greenstein, you’re the man !!
Absolutely fantastic attitude. “Best un-restored” – fantastic
I want to be Mr. Paul Greenstein !
