It's not 1300, but 132, as verreme said

Those Fiat/Zastava 132 models were made in Zagreb in period 1974-1981. Although considered as Zastava's product, they wore Fiat logo. The name of Zastava was only on the chassis plate.

Actually it's not money, but a bond. The state provided a public loan, so anyone could buy those bonds and with that money the tunnel was built. Later, people could cash that bonds, and the state paid them out in 2 equal installments (as written on the bond).

This public loan concept was very popular in ex-Yu for bigger infrastructure projects, such as tunnels, bridges, motorways. Usually the loans were locally/regionally oriented, as you can see on this one, because Istra and Rijeka region were the most interested in building Učka tunnel.

For the end, the giant depicted on the bond is not some typical soc-realistic figure, but a character from the local legends and folklore - Veli Jože, which was also the main character in Vladimir Nazor's 1908 novel of the same name.

Thanks. They were also made in Spain, but with Seat badging everywhere.

I drove on this road in 1994 all the way down from Barcelona to Algeciras. It was really amazing experience. I remember donkeys walking alongside the road, enormous bulls following us when slept on a field, lots of prostitutes of any gender selling their bodies, most fabulous thunders I ever seen, hundreds of friendly Spaniards partying after midnight in villages passed by and some communications problems; not many of them could speak a foreign language whatsoever. Road was rather empty and pleasure to drive. Some parts were already dual carriageway, some were under construction. Actually, whole country was kind of huge construction site, back then.

Everything is very different now. You won't see any empty pieces of N-340, except maybe the abandoned sections.

Some pictures (1960 to 1970) of the former Portuguese city of Lourenço Marques (capital of the Overseas Province of Mozambique until 1975), now Maputo, capital of the Republic of Mozambique):

Indeed! Mozambique, as well as Angola, were very developed overseas provinces (even more than 'Portugal metropolitano' - the name usually used to designate the original Portugueses borders in Europe). In part, this development was due the huge natural resources that these 2 former provinces had (and still have). Even people were more 'developed' than in european Portugal. If you look to the architecture of the houses, the city planning, everything is quite different from european Portugal. Although Portugal was a dictatorship, Angola and Mozambique had a different way of living. Much more open, more free... after the independence, almost 1 million Portuguese ran way from Africa back to Portugal. The way of thinking and being was so different that these 'african' Portugueses made a truly cultural revolution in the old grey Portugal.

And the major cities were always built from scratch! That's why you can find such perfectly aligned streets and avenues. Later I'll post more pictures of other cities.
