We love us some two-stroke Iron Curtain automobiles here at Jalopy Central, and sometimes we're so enamored of our Wartburgs and Trabants that we forget to give props to the other Warsaw Pact automotive players. Poland, for example. Starting in 1958, the FSO factory in Warsaw started churning out the Syrena, a steel-bodied two-stroker, and they kept buzzing off the assembly line and into the hands of the glorious socialist worker cadres until 1983. There was a super-cool delivery truck version called the Bosto, and it goes without saying that you could get a Syrenamino!
