Rear Engine Zaporozhetz

This message is a bit off list, sorry. I'll be brief. I have an
opportunity to buy two restored, Russian, rear engine cars. These are
Soviet era Zaporozhetz. They look a little like an old Fiat, but they
have rear louvers like an Amphicar. I did an internet search and got
only one American hit. That was a web site dedicated to the world's
worst cars. The Zaporozhetz got an honorable mention. Still, I'm a
sucker for rare cars. Question: Are there any of these cars in the
U.S.? What are they worth? Assuming no one on this list serve knows,
where might I go to get information?

Arnold: Try a Google search of "zaporozhets" (note spelling) and also
"ZAZ", "Zaz 966", "ZAZ 965", "ZAZ 965A", etc., depending on what model(s)
you may have. You'll find there's quite a bit out there. You can try the
same search in the Russian Google at http://www.google.ru/ .

Just by coincidence, this week I happened to add a new entry that "The
Cap'n" turned up onto the Club site's "Museums with Amphis" page at
http://www.amphicar.com/museums/museums.html for the Lane Motor Museum in
Nashville, which just happens to have a Zaporozhets in its collection as
well as an Amphicar. So, clearly they are fellow oddball vehicular
travellers...Sso maybe your post isn't SO far off topic after all.
