The Soviet Union paid great attention to the engineering industry. Especially the development of new vehicles, because of problems for them in the country was more than enough. In addition to utility models, designed to meet the specific targets in the USSR appeared and special cars. Some of them were very rare.
We all know the GAZ-69 as a remarkable car. However, it was his, and that's such an interesting modification. It really is a passenger truck. The prototype was created in the 60s in Ulyanovsk. However, the machine rejected. She was found unprofitable for the country.

3. VAZ-2106 "Tourist"
This Soviet pickup was established in 1981. The design was proposed by the Director Farshatova plant. In the car was a fold-out tent. The plant expects to begin small-scale production, but stopped on a single prototype. It's a pity.
Three-wheeled cars were trying to do around the world. I marked in this field and Serpukhov motorcycle factory. There was done is such a microcar with an engine capacity of 4 horsepower. Maximum speed was 30 km / h, and sometimes machine refused to go downhill.

Bonus: tracked GAZ-M1
In the Soviet Union half-track trucks mass-produced. In most cases, these were tractors and trucks, however, have tried to design the cars and tracked model. This one, for example, was made on the basis of the car GAZ-M1.
