I was driving on the outskirts of Warsaw today and popped into ' The Polish car museum" Ostrebusy on the way to Milanowek.

muzeum-motoryzacji.com.pl

If you are into cars and Polish history you will enjoy. They also have the original Austin van that Sue Ryder, did her runs from the Uk to Warsaw/Poland. There is a section dedicated to her.

That's "Otrębusy". I live some 1.5 km from the place and the museum is a "must-see" for all new friends visiting me.

Great museum. We were married (ahum, drove to the wedding place) in one of their cars, and so did friends of ours.
If you watch a Polish movie with old cars in it, they come from there.
I heard they have a branch somewhere in Praga these days ?

Same with wartime trucks or the Pope John Paul II vehicle (Papamobile).

How much did they charge you for renting those two cars, sobieski?

You in Podkowa A_S ?

The price of hiring will not kill you. They quoted me 1,200 for the old London bus for 4-5 hrs, thats with driver and someone to do the catering.

I have no idea to be honest. 8 years ago is way back and my (then future) wife arranged it.
As concerns the papamobile... I think it is a reconstruction. There are a few of them in Poland :)
But they are doing good business with their old cars.

The very border of Brwinów/Podkowa Leśna, warszawski, location called Borki, the name only known to old locals. This is the part of Brwinów beyond the route 719, neighbouring Podkowa.

Regarding the old London bus, you must be right. A Warsaw band called Strefa Mocnych Wiatrów once rented it out for their jubilee concert, I have seen some photos.

Sobieski, I can't be certain about the papamobile, yet those people were telling me stories and showing how they reconstructed the genuine cars. Impressive piece of work. I could see a wreck of an ancient car; two years later exhibited in mint conditions. Fanatics, but I fully support their passion!

Were they involved in the reconstructed Kubus?
( The cool, A Team style, home made armoured car from the uprising)

No, I've checked it out. Kubuś was reconstructed by Juliusz Siudziński in his workshop in Warszawa-Anin.
In Polish: naukowy.pl/encyklopedia/Juliusz_Siudzi%C5%84ski

Interesting pages here - movies involving the Museum exhibits:

Yes, their home page reads they have opened a subsidiary at Ząbkowska 38, Warszawa-Praga, in Fabryka Konesera.

Oh,thanks for that, I was getting confused with the origional Kubas at the Army Museum, I think that may have been partially restored at the car museum :)
