By the mid-60s in our country is ripe paradoxical situation in which a high-Tribune managers and production workers reported the activities of giant plants, and the population is still only dreaming about your own car.

In these circumstances there was such a thing as amateur automotive. By one group of designers and enthusiasts created the available units of the factory cars of their dreams. Most have failed at the welding frame of rusty pipes, someone actually managed to get behind the wheel, but those happy exceptions faded into history. In memory of the passion of domestic motorists stayed in the "Museum of crews and vehicles," an unusual exhibit.

In 1963 a small group of enthusiasts started to create his Homebrew series of five identical machines, known as KD. Cars were sporty coupe "2+2". The basis of the fiberglass body was space frame made of pipes. It was installed components and assemblies from the series "Zaporozhets ZAZ-965". Also, the layout has been retained rear-engine four-cylinder air-cooled power of 30 HP, which provided a top speed of 120 km / h.

The group of founders included six cars. The closing date of construction of the series is 1969. Its style, the swiftness of lines car KD was the complete opposite of serial industrial production. The uniqueness of this case not only in professional design and workmanship, but also that home-made car was put on stream.

Currently, the car is under restoration and we, with the permission of the author, give the picture of the book Zakharova "Pictures of cars."
