The Lomakov Museum of Vintage Cars and Motorcycles greets guests with a jumble of diverse antiquities: from Singer sewing machines from the beginning of the last century to vehicles of the Third Reich party bosses. In some parts of the exhibition, it seems that this is more a warehouse or workshop, and not a museum. Separate cars are closed from a full review by heaps of rare units: gearboxes, cans and other oiled iron. And everything would be sad in stories Lomakovsky museum, if not exhibits. The oldest of them is the lightweight Peugeot motorcycle of the 1914 model of the year, which the interventionist troops from the French expeditionary corps abandoned in Arkhangelsk in the 1918 year. The unit is unique in many respects in the world and, according to employees, is fully capable of moving independently. I got into a motorcycle museum in 1992 year - the Lomakovs gave him a box of vodka for the owner from the Smolensk region.

The main nail that greets visitors is a crankshaft with a flywheel from the fascist 8-cylinder Horch. About him below.
The winner of the pre-war exhibition in Paris 1935 of the year is the amazingly beautiful Horch-853, which according to legend belonged to Hermann Göring. According to the site lomakovka.ru, this machine is in the register of UNESCO monuments and is officially protected by the state. The cabriolet is considered a pre-series, specially released to participate in the Paris show. Horch-852 was officially released from 1936 onwards. The car is distinguished by a glulam beech body panel and a barometer built into the torpedo. It is clear that such a status German got into the USSR not on his own will, but as a trophy from the Gering mansion. According to legend, Marshal Rokossovsky, who in the middle of 1945, presented it to his friend, Hero of the Soviet Union, pilot Mikhail Samokhin, was the second high-ranking user of the gig. Further, the car wandered around the country and in an extremely poor condition came to restorers Lomakov. Horch-852 is a true star of Soviet cinema - about 25 roles on the gig account.

This Mercedes-Benz 540 K 1935 of the year, on which Goebbels drove around, was equipped with a compressor-row "eight" and 4-speed gearbox. In 1938, the minister gave the car to the guard for the escort convoy. After the war he worked for the first secretary of the Estonian Communist Party of the Soviet Union, and later went to the cast. The cabriolet was on the balance sheet of the Chancellery and was the only one in the government park in cherry livery.
Eclectic Lomakovsky Museum
The car Mercedes-Benz 320 1939 of the year from the personal park of Martin Bormann, designed for the economic needs of partigenos. In the mornings, the car transported the children of Bormann to the schools, and after that a personal chef went there to buy food to the markets of Berlin. We had to buy at different times and in different places - the bosses of the Third Reich were very suspicious and were afraid of poisoning. There is an assumption that Stirlitz appeared in the frames of the immortal film in this particular car. The car is also famous for its participation in a photo shoot with the current mayor of Kiev - boxer Vitali Klitschko. The famous German crew got to the Lomakov Museum in 1995 from a private garage in Zelenograd. The car is completely in original condition - without a "remake".
