I was surprised by the title of this movie.
When I was living in Yougoslavia, the equivalent to comrade is drug for males and drugarica for females. In the period between World War II and Josip Broz Tito's death in socialist Yugoslavia it was applied to almost everybody: teachers, officials, etc. It is still used among far left organization members, and calling someone "drug/drugarica" may also be used ironically to denote someone's perceived radical leftism.

I remember the first time I heard that word. It was in a very expensif shop in Belgrade in 1987. The sales woman welcomed the Lady who entered by "gospodja", what means Lady.And that Lady answered, I'm not a Lady, I'm a Drugarica, to show she belonged to the high-level nomenklatura.
With the cars, the police knew if you were important or not. Number plates with six numbers: normal people. Number plate wirh 5 numbers: important people like professors of university and number plates with four numbers: high level nomenklatura.
In those days, I had in Belgrade a 1979 Buick Century Turbo 4-door full optioned sedan with ...... number plate with 4 numbers.

The Cimos Citroŕn: I remember one or two DS ambulances, but because produced in Croatia, maybe some 4-door sedans have survived in Zagreb.
But I found in Sofia some very interesting Simca cars produced in Romania. In Sofia, we were driving a 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser. Now this car is in the Netherlands as our "European car" we use whe are in holliday in Europe.

The Bacalan case is interesting, but import of Bacalan to Poland have been never definitively confirmed. We indeed imported quite notable (like for our realities in those times) numbers of Arondes - both - older 90A (in Elysee and DeLuxe trim levels) and later P60's, but as I know, Bacalan, compared to regular P60's, had notable external differencies = no chromed slats - and in Poland P60s usually had them. Also Arondes weren't used here as taxis (at least not as state owned taxis).

Andre Malraux wrote Is very interesting that communist countries imported Simca Aronde, I did not knew it. Thanks for the information, Yvon! :beer:

A few of them even came to the DDR. Only a handful and only around 1956/57, if I'm not wrong. But officially imported. As far my fellow, the Western-cars-in-the-DDR-specialist has said, no survivors are known. Recently an early Simca 1000 with DDR-registration popped up at eBay, but this was one of the typical Western cars over there - with a dark history and not complete papers.
