I did a search on GOOGLE and here is what I found for you. They look to me like drawings rather than photos of an actual car. There were many photos of the car you are asking about but none modified.

With enough ingenuity and time it is possible to update any vehicle.

I appreciate this pictures!

The engine and complete driveline can be changed to something stronger and able to handle more power.

I just finished reading all your previous posts.

Seems like you are looking for ideas to have the ability to build a fast car that will be useable on and off the road. What are your hopes for the use of this vehicle?

I'm taking a wild guess as to your motivation and suggest you look for a four wheel drive truck of any manufacturer available. Use a higher gearing in the front and rear axles for increased high speed driving and tires that are designed more for street use for better handling on the pavement. Tune the engine so that you have the best you can get from it. Then drive it like your life depended on it.

And place will suffice?



Actually, it’s just my “crystal dream”. Something like Road Warrior car. Problem in that I want that it was ’59 Cadillac. Maybe, sounds like delirium but… One my e-mail friend seen saw Mad Max at 14 years. Now, at 40, he’s owner of Max’s car replica, with real 600 bhp engine. So that chances are...

And what, you have experience in such deals?

It would be a pretty cool little hotrod. I've been to Russia and Uzbekistan a couple times and there are some nice styles of the Skoda, the older ones even have nice chrome, but I think the frame and suspension would need to be strengthed in order to handle a high performance setup. Then, you have to worry about the potholes!

This site has lots of pictures of the Skodas: Click Here

And this one would make a nice rod:


This is the ZAZ968:
