Ah, Dacia, the brand I grew up with. In fact, an entire country relied almost solely on it to move around. I don’t know if you can imagine a state where everybody drove one single model, a badly made rebadged version of the Renault 12. For decades, the vast majority of Romania’s passenger car landscape was comprised of various body types and facelifts for the Dacia 1300. Here in America, we have the import vs domestic war, but back then in Romania, there was no battle: any foreign car, as we used to call them, was better than the Dacia.
