Andrey Tkachenko, a gifted Russian artist, decided to create a special series of paintings, which he dedicated to the motorcycle and automotive technology of the Soviet Union. Undoubtedly, his work will appeal to everyone who is not indifferent to the classics of the Soviet car industry. In fact, Tkachenko's work can be called almost an instruction for modernizing an old car into an interesting project.
1. Racing IZH-2125
This is how the high pillars behind the passenger and driver's seats and special glasses can turn the familiar IZH Combi into something similar to the model from Formula 1 of the 50s.
2. Transporter UAZ-452
In this picture, the faithful friend of the Soviet law enforcement officers and collective farmers appears in a completely different light - now it is a mobile carrier, in this particular case for a sports bike, which is made in the same style as the UAZ.
3. GAZ-21 "Red Wagon"
And this two-door van in a bright red design, according to the author's plan, was intended for the Soviet special services, in which they would pursue aliens.
4. GAZ-12 ZIM project "Winter"
As you might guess, the artist "developed" this GAZ specially for Santa Claus. And here a lot says about it - for example, the very WINTER name, and the emblem on the hood, which depicts a deer. By the way, grandpa, apparently, loves to play on the roads, as can be judged by the direct-flow exhaust and the compressor.
5. GAZ-63 "Snow Rat"
Well what can I say, a very original interpretation of the 63rd GAZ. True, now it is already an all-terrain caterpillar "Snow Queen".
6. Racing VAZ-2106
If you really want to have a sports car in your garage, you can make it out of an ordinary "six". Just add fenders, roll cages and fit the car with low profile tires. And, of course, do not forget about the most important thing - about parallel stripes on the hood and further along the body and about correctly designed headlights.
7. ZIL-112S "Night hawk"
ZIL-112S was designed and assembled specifically for racing purposes. A 300-horsepower V8 engine with a volume of 7.0 was installed on the car. The lightweight fiberglass body reduces the vehicle's weight to 1,330 kg. From one place to a hundred, this sports car accelerated in just 4.5 seconds. And the maximum speed of 112C, which was a record for the Soviet Union, was 270 km / h.
8. "Zaporozhets" - coupe
Was among the number of works of the artist and the main character of many anecdotes - "Zaporozhets". And with the help of a light hand of a master, a car familiar to everyone turns into a stylish car with notes of Japanese car design. Such a model can take part in circuit races and set a spectacular drift.
9. "Seagull" pickup
Nice pickup came out, didn't it? You can carry a lot on this one, even the rare IZH-350 model.
10. GAZ-M-20 "Victory"
A modest and inconspicuous-looking sedan of the post-war times was reincarnated in the picture into a cool transport for professional Siberian raiders. Raised body, powerful "toothed" wheels and crankcase protection - why not the conqueror of the taiga?
11. Racing RAF-977
It turns out that the RAF-977 could be used not only as an ambulance and a primitive van, but also as a racing car with excellent aerodynamics aimed at achieving maximum speeds.
12. ZAZ-965 for street racing
Rusty bodywork, great colored doors and retro styling should not be misleading. Under the hood of this apparently unremarkable car is a real monster in the form of a powerful engine. Well, why else would a car have safety arches, wide slick tires and a huge rear wing?
13. Racing "pie" IZH-2715
Now this is not some kind of delivery mini-van, but a racing car with improved aerodynamics and equipped with a nitrous oxide system.
14. ZIS-42 as an ice cream seller
Once he transported guns to the Red Army, but now the time is peaceful, which is why the ZIS-42 has mastered a new profession - an ice cream worker.
15. GAZ-24-02 Volga
On such a Volga it is very comfortable to transport racing karts between competitions. It has always been popular for its payload capacity and powerful engine. And in the spacious cabin, the racing team will sit comfortably.
And this is what they looked like 15 most popular car models of the Soviet car industry, which served as prototypes for the creative work of Andrey Tkachenko.
