These Are The Cars I Saw In Romania. I just returned from Romania, where I fell in love with the countrys tough, squared off workhorse, the ARO 2. Series. I also developed deep feelings for the Dacia 1. Oxford Advanced Learner`S Dictionary For Windows 7. Russian sedans. Here are the machines that stole my heart. Ill get straight to it and tell you that the greatest vehicle I saw in Romania, by far, was the ARO 2. Seriesbasically Romanias version of the Land Rover Defender. Just look at that raised hood and the sharp lines on the front clip there are few vehicles out there that look this tough without oversize tires, light bars, enormous badges and bright tow hooks. The ARO is a badass without even trying. Most of the AROs I saw were 3. Built on the 2. 4 Series platform, which has been around since 1. These things were built on boxed ladder frames, and used rear leaf springs to suspend that frame from a solid rear axle which had an optional locking diff. The powertrains in the ones I saw tended to be 2. In either case, power got sent to either the rears wheels, or all four via a cast aluminum transfer case with low range. Up front is an independent suspension setup with upper and lower control armsthe former of which holds a coil spring perch and a privision for a shock absorber. The steering setup looks rather strange, as it uses what looks like a dual pitman arm setup, in which one pitman arm actually pushes the other via a center link. Similar to the steering system youd find in old American pickups with independent suspension and pitman arm style steering, the setup gives the ARO quite a bit of ground clearance in the center. The same cannot be said about that front differential, which appears to be made of cast aluminum, and which sits awfully exposed to whatever terrain may lie below. Maybe thats why the one in the picture above was leaking so badly though its worth noting that many of these ARO 2. Series trucks came with skid plates up front. The halfshafts coming out of that low slung differential use beefy u joints instead of vulnerable CV axles, and the manual locking hubs up front just add to the AROs old school, rough and tumble theme. I saw these trucks all over Romania doing hard work in remote areas they all looked thoroughly beaten, and thats what gave them character. I want one badly. So the Romanian ARO 2. Series captured my heart, but not too far behind was the Dacia 1. Just look at this thing They were everywhere Also ubiquitous were Dacia 1. Heres a look at the front What surprised me was that, even though it doesnt look as tough as the ARO, 1. Dacias are actually tough little sedans. I saw pickup truck versions with their telltale hood bulges all over the place, with beds loaded to the brim. I wasnt able to snag a picture, but heres how they look I also spotted some great Russian cars like this mint Moskvich 4. I have to show you the back end. Its too pretty to omit from this article Another Russian car I often spotted in Romania was the Lada Nova, basically a Soviet adaptation of the original Fiat 1. As far as newer cars go, there were Dacia Logans everywhere. Even the police cars were Logans. Entertainment Earth is your source for action figures, toys, collectibles, and bobble heads to collect.

Heres one in slammed form Mmm There also seems to be a strange infatuation with Daewoo Matizes in Romania. I cant explain it and to be honest, Im a fan of the little cars, but theyre just everywhere I was only in Romania for three days, and I spent most of my time in Cluj and in the mountains near Sibiu, but in those few days, I saw more AROs, Dacia 1. Dacia 1. 40. 0s, Dacia Logans, Ladas, Moskviches, and Daewoo Matizes than Id ever seen in my life. And thats a good thing, because I dig each and every one of those cars. Even better than its cars, though, were Romanias roads, which were incredible.
