Even after four decades of friendship, "Mossy" has never let its owner down. Schott has only had to change the engine once and the car continued to work faultlessly.
"It has already covered more than one million kilometers," the man said. "Today it is worth 7,000 euro," he added.
Although, nowadays "Moskvitch" is considered an exotic vehicleby German standards, during the Soviet times many Germans preferred to drive Soviet cars due to their high quality. Schott, in particular, noted he is pleased that the car consumes little fuel: only 10 liters per 100 kilometers.
