I was aware about Nysa's popularity in certain parts of the world, but did not realise it was that popular.

must have been a big trade between PRL and the Bulgars... but what were the Polish getting? Bulgarian umbrellas?

Poland had a very well developed automotive industry in those times. We practically didn't have to import any types of cars from other Eastern Block countries (maybe except for Ikarus buses, but this was rather in the late period, and we were still producing Jelcz and Autosan buses in the same time, similarly as before) and we exported quite much to other countries. Supposedly, Fiat 126p was very popular in Hungary too. But except from that - Żuk vans, Star trucks, Jelcz trucks and buses, Ursus tractors... Żuks are still quite popular, maybe a bit less now, but like 4 years ago, if you went to a local farmers' market, many of sellers were still selling from Żuk cars. This is all about utility vehicles. Talking about passenger cars - first Warszawa, then Syrena, then Fiat 125p and 126p (ok, it was Italian cars, but I don't think any country produced those models so massively), at the end - Polonez.

Which other country in the Eastern Block, not counting the USSR, did produce so many types of cars? And if so, what kinds and makes of cars were it? I can think of Skoda, but it was rather passenger cars only, unless I am wrong. Same with Dacia in Romania.

Wow I didn't know you produced cars on Opel license. And Volkswagen.

It looks like you had "real" cars (not like Fiat 126p) available to everyone quite early. Unless they were not so available as 126p in Poland, so that whole families were driving it for holidays even to Bulgaria...

But these are still passenger cars. What about vans, trucks, buses, tractors? And, maybe also, other farming equipment like combines (we produced them too)? Czechs had Zetor tractors, and what about other countries?

The previous posts had nothing to do with Bulgaria so you're comments make no sense.

The Jakarta-Bogor-Ciawi (Jagorawi) Expressway between 1978-1979

Many ppl in an Indonesian FB group thought that this was built to Korean standards; this is wrong, as it was designed by an American civil engineering firm Sverdrup & Parcel and supervised by another American civil engineering firm Ammann & Whitney. Both firms had merged with different firms of its kind. Only the contractor of the project is Korean: Hyundai Construction Co (now Hyundai E&C)

Built with the cost of $33M (of late 1970s money), the expressway was meant to be free (it was originally called the Jagorawi Freeway/Jalan Bebas Jagorawi) but VERY SHORTLY before opening the then Minister for Public Works suggested the freeway to be tolled, which results in the incorporation of PT Jasa Marga (Indonesia Highway Corporation) --now PT Jasa Marga (Persero) Tbk (publicly traded: IDX:JSMR; 70% stock still owned by state)-- in 1st March 1978

Some claimed that the toll scheme were used to be similar to those of the Meishin/Tomei expressways of Japan until 1972 (where toll will be lifted after construction funds are paid off) but the US/UK intel-backed President Suharto claimed that toll will be put in place on places of high economy on the expressway's inauguration speech

Originally designed for 120km/h speeds, Jasa Marga decreased the speed limits here to 100km/h when they are widening the roads to 3x2, iirc

That's what I said, non-bulgarian means something that is not made in Bulgaria.
