Werdy – The maintenance whale
The iconic vehicles of Eastern Europe on your desk!
The popular models of the socialist automobile industry also include the iconic IFA W50, primarily calling attention to itself with its size and exceptionally high carrying capacity. The lovable monster had a carrying capacity of approximately 5 tons, but the resourceful workers often doubled the load, at least according to urban legend. The durable truck working perfectly on various terrains could be recognized by its typical, many times deafening engine sounds and terrible suspension. In Hungarian common parlance, the IFA was most frequently referred to as the “szippantós” (a nickname for sewage trucks), as this vehicle used to carry the sewage from undeveloped plots. In addition to the sewage collection version, the model also had a firefighting, a tipper, a sheeted and a garbage version.
