This 1949-1952 Škoda VOS converted as a draisine belonged to the high-ranking Romanian Communist Party official Ana Pauker.
She was the unofficial leader of the Romanian Communist Party immediately after World War II and served as the country’s foreign minister in the late 1940s and early 1950s, and was the world’s first female foreign minister when entering office in December 1947. That woman was such a mean bitch she got the nickname “Stalin with a skirt”.
Only 107 Škoda VOS cars were ever built, half of them being armored plated. This particular car was converted to be used on railway tracks. It was capable of reaching speeds of up to 115 km/h with a total weight of 5 tons. The engine was a large 5.2-litre engine taken from a truck, delivering 120 PS (88 kW).
The driver’s secure windshield is smashed after a supposed attempted attack on Ana Pauker. After that incident, the car was never used again.
Nowadays the car is in a terrible shape and is rusting outdoor in Sinaia railway station, Romania.
