The Museum of Technology and Transport in Szczecin is full of vehicles that Poles used to be so much in love with.
The WFM motorcycle was called “uncle’s Frank motorbike”, the Fiat 126p was called either “the Fatal Imitation of an Automobile for Tourists, a 1-passenger 2-door 6-time overpaid car”, or “the coughy”. Its older brother, the Fiat 125p, was known as “the dresser” or “the clumsy one”. The Jelcz bus was called “the cucumber”, and the GT6 tram – “the fritz”.
Vehicles that earned themselves a nickname can now be found only in our museum. Nobody gives names to cars designed by a computer. Come pay us a visit – your first wheels are waiting.
