Maybe someone could help in explaining a certain mystery surrounding a Ghia L6.4. One of the most exclusive cars in the world back then, made in only 26 examples, was caught on picture in Warsaw, in the middle of the grey, communist reality. At a time when any foreign car caused sensation in the street, the ghia must have looked like a spaceship among all the Volgas and Warszawas. You can see the photo below, made at the 1965 grand opening of the Grand Theatre/National Opera in Warsaw. The car (probably the same, as I don't believe that 2 of them could have accidentaly visited Poland) was also caught in Katowice in 1970 on another two photos. It is possible, judging by the size, shape and colour of registration plates, that it came from Switzerland or Italy.
No-one knows who the owner was. Is there maybe a register of all the 26 cars or something that could shed some light on this interesting issue?
