Good afternoon friends. Today we will begin our virtual tour of the Vadim Zadorozhny Museum. The museum is more than worthy, so I propose to start without further ado.
Admission is 400 rubles for adults, 150 for photographing. Very inexpensive if you take into account the quality of exposure.
Come on ...
THE ONLY IN RUSSIA HOLSMAN SELF-PROPELLED CREW.
An example of the first steps in the automotive industry. The "horseless carriage" produced in America at the beginning of the 20th century, characterized by high maneuverability when driving on dirt roads. Like all high-wheelers,Holsman had a chain drive rear wheel drive. The rims of the wheels were not covered with steel sheet, and covered with rubber. Instead of the steering wheel, which was then used in everyday life, there is a curved lever on the car, which received the nickname. Holsman cars were completed with several types of bodies, ranging from two-seater raebout to three-seater couplet.The most popular engine, which was installed on the "Holsmen" was a single-cylinder gasoline engine with a power of 5 hp, located under the rear seat. In this case, the engine is constantly being improved. In 1909, Holsman produced his most powerful car with a 26 hp engine, which had four cylinders. The motors started from the curve of the handle, i.e. "crooked starter". The carbide headlights were lit with a match, and a kerosene lantern was located behind the car. To increase the terrain on the machines installed wheels of large diameter, which increased ground clearance, but worsened stability. It did not cause any particular concerns, because the maximum speed at that time rarely exceeded 30 km / h. A car on huge wheels easily overcame deep hollows filled with water, could easily pass over stumps and even over small bushes.
Alfa Romeo 6C 2300B is an elegant car with high dynamic parameters, which glorified the brand with victories in the prestigious Mille Miglia races. Front independent spring suspension was based on a design with two wishbones. Rear, independent, as the elastic elements had a longitudinal torsion.The brakes received a hydraulic drive, while the mechanical parking brake only worked on the rear wheels.

The first show of the car of this model at the 1946 Paris Motor Show caused a sensation.Dear, comfortable convertible with extravagant design is clearly not intended for the French public, and was designed with the expectation of export overseas. But even there his debut was not successful.
The next general beauty ...
Go ahead ... To Horchʻam - on the right hand. Horch is a German automotive company, founded by German engineer August Horch, specializing in creating cars of the same name, including premium cars.
In the 1930-1940s, was part of the concern Auto Union, along with other German companies Wanderer, Audi and DKW.
Many people on the territory of the former USSR mistakenly believe that “Horch” is the old name for Audi. Domestic journalists, even specialized publications, have been duplicating this fallacy for several decades. Horch is not Audi or Auto Union, it is one of four firms (Horch, Wanderer, DKW, Audi) that created another one in 1932: Auto Union ( Automobile Union "). Moreover, all four founders had the right (and were) to wear the famous four “Auto Union” rings, meaning the union of these four firms. That is, each ring meant one company. “Audi” is just one “Auto Union” ring. At various times after the war, Horch“Wanderer” and “DKW” ceased to exist, and Audi declined its original emblem (one means “First”), but kept the advertised four rings of the Auto Union concern, removing the Auto Union label from the rings.
Both Horch and Audi were successively founded by one person - August Horch. The fact is that at the beginning of the 20th century, due to financial and legal conflict with the shareholders of August Horch Automobilwerke GmbH, August Horch himself was forced to leave the company bearing his name and establish a completely different company, Audi.
In the names of two carmakers, founded by one person, there is a play on words: the imperative “Horch!” In common German dialect means “Listen!”, “Audi” is the same in Latin.
Now let's go to the "Beham" ... Very unusual and unusual for BMW modelki.
