Private tour in the oldtimer
This exclusive tourist tour enables you to enjoy a private pursuit for Zagreb’s past. And what is so special? You will experience this, no more or no less, in the most popular oldtimer in this area – Fićek! Fićo is actually the glorious Zastava 750, a car from the ’60s. It was originally designed per Italian Fiat. One interesting fact is that the German VW Buba had an influence on Fićo’s appearance too. Fićo was until the ’80s for Yugoslavia the same as the Trabant for DDR, Spaček for France or Mini Morris for Britain in the ’60s. All public services were driving Fićo, while the older generations tried out their first driving experience right in this car. It was the car that helped boys to court girls, the car in which you had your first kiss, and the car that took you fishing or at the sea.
Here are some interesting facts about Fićo!
- Fićo started to produce 1955, per Italian Fiat 600 license.
- Fićo was produced in the firearm factory Zavodi Crvena Zastava.
- The design was inspired by the famous VW Buba, therefore the engine was at the back.
- Fićo was a very popular model for car racing because it weighs only 500 kilos.
- Fićo has its own monument. It shows a war event from 1991. where a tank goes over it.
- This car was so popular that even Columbians in Bogota had their production sections.
