Hit by the Nysa and subsequently explodes.

Reminds me of the "Every Car Is A Pinto" entry at the TV Tropes wiki.
Quote Any significant damage to a vehicle, particularly falling off a cliff, is liable to result in a large explosion even though real cars rarely explode. This is a subset of Stuff Blowing Up. Evidently, TV cars run on nitroglycerine instead of petrol.

Police cars in Hot Pursuit would do well to remember that Every Car Is A Pinto.

While cars are the most common, it seems that any form of transport has a good chance of exploding into a huge ball of flames and debris if it's shot at or wrecked. Aircraft, railroad locomotives, ships, pretty much anything bigger and more mechanically complex than a bread box. Sometimes, this happens to cars that are plunging off cliffs and haven't hit anything yet.

Can anyone tell me how you distinguish between a 986M, Zaporojetz and 968A?

It means that on the pic is 1973+ 968 or 966.

Thanks. I don't think I've ever seen any of the original 1967 versions with the grille. I saw quite a few of the 1973+ versions when I was in Ukraine last summer. Are there still many of them left in Poland?

No they disappeared quite quickly after the 1989. Already in the early 1990's a used one was cheaper than the new bicycle. They were never so common like other "popular cars". The one with chromed grill was probably never imported here.

Others are listed as Zaporojets rather than Zaporozhec. It will stay a problem which transcription of the cyrillic we should use, but it would be better to use the same everywhere...

Edit: Oops, even more are listed as Zaporojetz...
