T87’s Californian adventures.

no comment Posted by smitkees

T87Greenstein2019-1 Paul Greenstein and Dydia DeLyser’s 1941 Tatra T87 on the set of the FX TV show “Legion”. First, at a mausoleum in a Los Angeles cemetery that poses as a mosque in Morocco, along with a real camel. Then, at an airfield in the California desert, alongside a DC-3. For Paul, photos with the DC-3 were a thrill, but the best line was when they finished a shot, he asked if he could leave, and the answer was, “You can’t leave until the camel gets here” – even in Hollywood it’s not every day you have to wait for the camel!  Photos by Randy Wolfe.

T57K visits Normandy

T57KStMartin1944

Just months before D-Day:  T57K in Martin de Fresnay spring 1944

T57KStMartin2018

and in July 2018.

T57KStMartin2018-2

I*n the summer of 2018 your editor visited France with the T 57K. Somehow, in the war days, the German occupiers in France used a lot of T 57k’s. One T 57K was spotted in St Martin de Fresnay, in Normandy. After D-Day, the T 57 Ks, mostly used for police and supporting duties by the Germans, suddenly had to fulfil front duties.

As I realised that the scenery in St Martin de Fresnay had hardly changed, it became a challenge to photograph the T57K at the same spot, in 2018, 74 years later! Already present in Normandy after the 2018 TRUK rally, we managed to find the spot and tried to manoeuvre the T57K on exactly the same sport. The result is seen on the photos.

Being in Normandy, it was nice to visit the D-Day beaches and all rememberance sites.

Many German vehicles including the T 57Ks were destroyed by the Allies in the weeks after D-Day, especially in the so-called Falaise-gap.

Some served as booty vehicles for the British and Americans though.

Video + article: Slovak Museum of Design on its way to create a 1:1 T 603X Coupe

T603XCoupeRecreation2018

The Slovak Museum of Design (SMD) has recently completed a visualization of the Tatra 603 X Coupé project, which will be a model for real-world modeling. Even for that time, an attractive car from the city on the Danube obviously gets its second chance.

The Slovak Museum of Design (SMD) has recently completed a visualization of the Tatra 603 X Coupé project, which will be a model for real-world modelling. Even for that time, an attractive car from the city on the Danube obviously gets its second chance.

The modernized successor of the popular “sixth-wheel” from the Socialist era of the former Czechoslovakia was originally produced in Bratislava, but it did not get it into a functional prototype. Tatra Kopřivnice canceled the project.

The history of the first Slovak coupé, which had the potential of serial production thanks to its “quadriver sister”, was composed by SMD enthusiasts from drawings, technical drawings, models and snippets of memories of the direct participants of the dreamed project, which began with the proposal of John Cine in 1963.

Variant Coupé has never seen the light of the world and remained just as an unfulfilled dream. SMD motorists and design enthusiasts believe that this is the last chance for the Tatra people in Bratislava to meet and, together with them, this more than half a year’s car dream has gone into reality.


“We have just completed the computer visualization of the Tatry 603 X Coupé and therefore also data for model milling. The basis was the technical drawings of the Coupé, photographs and the gypsum model of the limousine at 1:10. We sent pictures to Jan Cin’s corrections to Canada. If everything goes well, at the end of May, the author himself will modify the 1: 4 model in the modelar plasticine so that we can then make perfect shapes at a 1: 1 scale, “says the official SMD website.
