This book presents the exceptional variety of vehicles developed behind the iron curtain until the end of the 1980s, some of which still exist today.

To achieve this, the author Klaus Schameitat not only traveled to the former GDR, but he also visited almost all the countries of the Eastern Bloc for more than 40 years.

Big, American-looking saloons come across rear-engined air-cooled curiosities, monstrous transport vehicles dream of a better life on a scrapyard, and a Wartburg races against a Żuk van – but not on the road: both vehicles were converted into draisines.

In this beautiful photo book, the East is represented as an unusual, colourful, elegant, and sometimes simply astonishing region.

The highlights: more than 800 documentary photos, mostly of everyday cars, concise model descriptions, a wide variety of cars, trucks, buses and trains of all kinds from more than 60 manufacturers, photographed in 20 Eastern European countries, classified by country, with informative maps and introductory texts.

Appendices include abbreviations and the main products of the manufacturers.
