Vintage Tatra 603 Hoonage!

So when you're driving behind the Iron Curtain with an air-cooled V8 mounted in the rear, what do you do? Why, you hoon it up, of course! You get sideways on the highway, blast through charming little towns at maniacal speeds, get airborne going over hilltops, and then do some off-roading, all with Johnny Law on your ass! This early-60s Czech film, apparently done as some sort of Tatra promotion, comes to us thanks to a tip from Bobash. Wait, there's more!

Snow can't stop you! Cops can't stop you! Nothing can stop the mighty Tatra 603! Stastnou Cestu! You know a country that tried to make Frank Zappa an official in its post-Iron-Curtain government (stinkin' James Baker hosed that plan, though) is gonna make good cars, eh?


Hmm..this may help explain the ending, found via Wikipedia (under the section for the T603):

"Almost entirely hand-built, Tatras were not for everybody; normal citizens could not buy them. They were reserved for Party elites, Communist officials, factory presidents and other notables, as well as being exported to most other Communist nations as official cars. Even Fidel Castro had a white Tatra T603, custom-fitted with air conditioning."

So, they finally pull over the T603, and find none other than some high muckity-muck hooning around the countryside. Awesome!
