Moskvich in Ireland

    Does anybody know what happened to the Moskvich (either 402/3 or 407) that was parked around the side of O'Neill's Arcade in Kilkee from 2001 or thereabouts until it disappeared around March?

    I can't seem to get any concrete info on the car's whereabouts.

    I was told some years back that there is another Moskvich, possibly a 408, parked somewhere in the South East, apparently next to a Ford Zodiac and a Merc of some class or other.

    Can anyone help me out here?

    They were sold in the Uk until 1975 when they got very bad reviews in the motoring press. I do remember a van driven around in a nearby town up to about the early 1980s. :)
