1980s / Austrian / Rewind

Rewind to Vienna, Austria, in the mid-1980s

We’re traveling to Vienna, Austria, in the middle of the 1980s. The photographer who took the pics below was evidently more interested in trams that in cars, but his pics give us a good sample of what was roaming the streets of the Austrian capital thirty years ago.

What car(s) can you identify in the following pictures? What one(s) would you most like to have in your garage?

We’re tempted by any of the Beetles, the burgundy Renault 6 with the bent rear bumper in the first picture and even the red LNA in the very last shot but we’d ultimately go with the green Renault 17 on the right side of the fourth picture.

  1. Same trams are still used in Belgrade. Actually they are donation from Basel, I think. Nice to see them in some other time and place,,,

  2. I would chose that green early 5 series on the first picture… The red LNA looks rather like a 104 (numberplate panel was painted black on the citroen).
    And I wonder what’s the white car on the 4th picture. Looks like a Fiat 124 but never seen those rear lights.
