As a bargain-basement people’s car for the masses, the 923 performed its job admirably, and single-handedly broke the country’s dependence on communist machinery thanks to its low cost, especially considering its innovative mechanical configuration.
Some Saab vibes but still with an identity on its own. Nice.
Oooh man i like it! got some of that funky old Tatra, and Saab vibes
What’s the size of this cute bubble?
Well it has a wheelbase of 1.8 metres, which is similar to the Fiat 500 of the time, so it would probably be really close to the size of the Fiat. (Although the Fiat used the interior space much better than I could in automation)
Your motorbike is beautiful and safe. By the standards of the 50s, when the roads were completely empty. The model Salon 518 is an example of virtuoso engineering that reflects well on the long-lasting photos for the desktop of a true photographer.
These are some of the best small car designs on here for a long time The 923 definitely has Saab vibes and the 918 looks a bit like an Italian Austin A30. Can’t wait to see what you come up with for the 60s
Well before the 1960s I still have one model yet from the late 50s that I will be posting soon- it’s a larger car meant for fleet use, also Salon’s first body-on-frame car.
But from the 60s you can expect at least
- a Compact hatchback
- a SUV-like wagon
- a Van
Sadly there hasn’t been much progress lately when it comes to the brand, and there is still a ton of cars to write these… idk what to call them, essays I guess?
but in the meantime, I am going to leave this here, my new Salon project:
Well, I have plans to continue writing about my cars again here, and I would like to ask my audience:
What would you like to see?
As in, is there anything I should change about my writing style, length of the posts, or anything else? I am open to all sorts of suggestions, as I would like to see my posts being enjoyed as many people as possible.
I like the way they are written now tbh. The style and era of cars you usually make appeals to me too so I don’t think there is much I would do different
So, I have plans to make a new post for a 1961 model year car, but currently I have two choices for that year, and would love to hear your opinion on which you’d like to see first.
I have set up a poll, so vote for the car you’d personally like to see first!
- A small economy coupe
- A proper van
Now that the poll has run for 10 days, the results show that van seems to be the more popular choice.
On that note, expect to see some lore of this van soon!
I owned a 1971 Hanomag F20 once upon a time, I expect this to be about as horrible, haha
