I reasoned like this: this Opel is only 10 years younger than my father, and he has already exchanged the nine dozen. But dad, God forbid him, still plays tennis with old men of younger, and the “captain” by the standards of auto -historia has long been supposed to rest with the world. After all, the car as such – a miserable three -wheelbage with a one -cylinder engine – was born just half a century before his birth! This means that organized rally – the club of classic cars of the competition on Kapitan 1939 will be an excursion to automobile light. A race for seven circles of hell, in which there are no words “controllability” and “comfort” ..
But everything turned out to be wrong. Old Opel, of course, recalled how much the car has changed over the past 72 years. But he struck how recently, it turns out, we still went on such technology. GAZ-69 Remember? I am sure that in the outback “Kozliki” and their UAZ derivatives are still in full swing to their owners to the neighboring village. And nothing – no one complains. So: pre -war Kapitan is better! Comfortable, quieter, softer and easier to manage. Yes, the concept of “accuracy” is absent in the role as a class, the car baptizes the car on emergency braking, and the dynamics are akin to a loaded “Kamaz”. But only the absence of the right mirror was seriously strained in it. Yes, and then only in the city. But how many thumbs raised, how much enthusiasm from neighbors on traffic! True, we drained the race. But my high -ranking “dig – lot” boss Opel and Cadillac in Russia Yves Le Forsone had nothing to do with it: two newcomers have a difficult quest with the search for KB according to the “Cossacks – Robbers” systems really too much.Although, in fact, IV is not a navigator in life, but a pilot: in his youth, he professionally drove in “open wheels” and even found the “Formula-1 ″ on the wheel of the drill three times on tests driving three times on tests. Therefore, when we were completely lost, Yves asked behind the wheel. He did not go to such old people to the “captain” either. But also familiar with their descendants well: in a student for 200 francs, a decrepit Citroen Traction Avant bought. He says, he went like … The old man led Yves cool: quickly, but smoothly, as if choosing the moments of switching and double squeezing. Когда разок не попал и коробка хрустнула синхронизаторами, Ив досадливо хлопнул себя по щеке – наказал. Our man: gambling and car. I am sure that with such a steering, Opel in Russia will definitely be fine.
