The shape of a Fiat 124 (of which is Lada derived) is very similar to the of Fiat 128, bud this is definitely Lada (I know it, my parents owned one when I was child). And Fiat 128 as a car of Bulgarian police? It´s unlikely.

This was filmed in Bulgaria but the plot is set in Russia. That number plate is a bad fake that looks a bit like old Soviet plates.

This is VAZ/Lada, but Fiat wouldn't be so strange for Bulgaria, don't forget that in the 1960's for a while the Fiat 124 was assembled there by Pirin.

Edit: rectangle mirror was to meet in 1973 for the first time, Ofc. it can be not original one. It laso can be a later one mounted to the doors - 1976+

Quote from Wikipedia:
Bulgarian
The Fiat 124 was also produced under the name Pirin-Fiat in Lovech, Bulgaria, on the basis of complete knockdown (CKD) kits between 1967 and 1971

I hired one in Bulgaria in 1971. Nice little car, with 'Balkanturist' on the front doors: people kept mistaking it for a taxi.

Jesus Christ seems there is also a Bulgarenault 10 on the far left, behind R16! Excellent picture, sad that we can't list it. :D
What was exactly your work at this time Chris40 (if it is not an MI6 secret ;) )?

@Gag Halfrunt: yes.

@weasel1984: I was on holiday. I worked in a wages office ... my late mother, a teacher, and I had an arrangement: basically, I drove (she hated driving) and she paid :D
We once or twice went to what were then Communist countries - yes, including Poland! - because they were cheap as well as interesting.

Sounds like nice holiday in nice times from the automotive point of view. ;)

Oh, it was: they all were. And photography is a hobby of mine ... I'll try not to bore the site with my photos unless I think they're relevant.
