Albania is a very poor country having been ruled under a communist regime from WW2 up until 1992.However, I learned that they have an appreciation for high quality cars in order to stretch the value of their money. Thus, you see a fair number of Mercedes-Benz 240D's on the streets. Why? Because they are tanks, and practically last forever! Good ROI.Here is a nice ... Check out this car!

25+ years later this car totally stands up. It is better looking than the majority of newer cars on the road today.I think this is a red 1984 BMW 3 series (E30), but it could possibly be as new as 1987, tough to pinpoint. Definitely a second generation E30.It was found on the streets of Delphi, Greece.This 2-door coupe is a nice looking compact executive car, and ... Check out this car!
I don't really know why, but I always like spotting a Lada. These cars just seemed so odd in North America, but they did have their time back in the 1980s. That classic boxy small sedan that was notorious for being super cheap, and utterly unreliable.Here is a look at the Lada Niva 4x4 1.7i, discovered in Zagreb, Croatia. I'm not positive the exact year of this one, but ... Check out this car!

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this vehicle in the midst of a bike ride from Cologne to Bonn Germany. So, I stopped and took some photos. This is the strange futuristic car (slash space-craft) the Citroën CX 25 Prestige Turbo. Probably either a 1985 or 1986 model.This car is bonkers.I really don't know what is going on here at all. Definitely not an ... Check out this car!
Introducing to you this white Zastava 128, spotted in Dubrovnik Croatia!Zastava you ask? The Zastava Automobile company was born in Serbia in the 1950's when a cooperation agreement was signed with Fiat. And so, they essentially began repackaging Fiat cars. The Zastava 128 came from the Fiat 128.This car was in production during the 1970's-1980's. Tough to nail down ... Check out this car!
This is one cool old car. The Opel Kadett in a gorgeous deep green colour. I can't identify the year yet, but it appears to be an early 1980's version of the Kadett. This was spotted on the island of Corfu, in Greece. I love the matching green roof rack baggage carrier.Very slick. Let's call it the Green Bullet.Here is a closer look at the back view of this ...
