Is there anyone in the US who has a Maluch that is legal to be driven?

I would like to meet and know someone who has a Maluch Legally registered in US or if there is any club of the sort as I have one and have always problems with getting parts even from Poland as it is 1976

There is one in Toronto (Mississauga). I saw it on a street last Monday. It has "POLMOZBIT" written accross. Polmozbit is a car garage in Mississauga. Perhaps they can help you with parts.

Must be a lot of fun.I would love to have one in the states as you can be racing (or at least feel like you are racing) and not breaking any speed limits at the same time.

Trust me it is,even cops ask me what is it and when I got it customs almost let it out as a go cart but I had to convince them its a real passenger car had to get it as antique over 25 years old in 2001,lately brakes and battery are the problem.

Hahaha unfortunately we don't have it anymore. I loved that car - it use to have like zebra striped seats. My grandma (the lady standing next to the car) called it her 'poorsche.' I think Maluchs are like 35-40HP 2 cyl engine - VROOOOMM.. My grandma bought a Daewoo Matiz (basically a Chevy Aveo) after that. The very first car I learned how to drive was a Fiat Cinquecento (or however it's spelled - basically the 90s version of the modern Fiat 500). I was like 14... See that kind of stuff wouldn't fly in America. If a Polish cop pulled us over (this was in Oborniki so it's a small town) he'd most likely complain, maybe give a ticket, but probably not arrest us. In the US, oh my goodness I can't even imagine what would happen if an adult got caught by a cop teaching a 14 year old how to drive.

I remember when I was in Poland around 12 years ago or so the government was passing some kind of law where people couldn't register new Maluchs. They let the current owners keep them but they didn't want them to be sold and then registered to a new individual since they were very unsafe cars.

I have 1976 yellow here in NJ with QQ plates and starts with a choke,they even took it to Chicago in 2001 for polish parade and has won many prizes on Polish festivals at garden state centre here in NJ.I use it occasionally in summer and my kids do too.They hated it when they were young and when i took em to school in that yellow school bus:)

An adult teaching an 14yo means lots oc charges like child endangerment,driving without licence to teach,improper insurance of vehicle and improper plates( without a student driver plates)lol atleast 5 to 10 tickets.

I remember seeing a maluch during the parade in Chicago - don't remember the year or the color but there is always at least 1 in the parade every year. Belmont street is like the polish street in Chicago - it gets wild on May 3.
