driving the UAZ and the Star back from Poland, is that Mad or what

Recommended Posts

okay bought myself a star 266 1974...lovely truck, been tarted up byu moto, but she has everything on her, jack, crow bar, winch, tow ropes emergency lights everything and a lovely plastic tarp sheet over the cargo hold...it has a dual exhaust and diff locks on all axles....unique as they normally only have a diff lock on the back four wheels...not difficult to fit a diff lock to the front but still it all done...and painted in a lovely Polish camo effect...


the UAZ has been treated and painted, looks good, and drives fine, the gearbox linkage is a bit iffy and thrid is a bit tricky to locate if your in a rush....but otherwise she is fine, even have the spotters periscope...it was an Spotting FOP for the artillery.


800 miles in a vehicle we have so far done just about 20 miles in...she will do 70 miles tomorrow and hopefully if anything goes wrong it can be sorted then...I will have tow ropes and may just may buy a 5 ton trailer to put her on the back just in case it does break down...
