    VACLAV nooo rofl, it sounds terrible in Czech, Vaclav is pretty common name for men in here, can't imagine having cars named Vaclav

    I know where you're going, but it sounds terrible trust me.
    Laurin would be okay, if that would be to close Lauren could do aswell.
    But Václav (yes, its with that little shit over "a" in czech) is just to common name for people that automaker with same name would be funny.

    I'd love to see a BeamNG version of Citroen, with all sorts of idiosyncratic features in their cars like hydropneumatic suspension.
    It'd also be nice to see a 2cv equivalent, a bare bone car with a tiny 2 cylinder engine, no faster than a horse, no more refined than a pig rolling in its own feces, yet reliable as the sunrise.

    Actually, the french ad for this car was "Stronger than 2 horses" (2cv = 2 chevaux = 2hp/2horses)

    Yep. This car also came with anywhere between 9 and 17 or so hp, from an air cooled flat twin

    Little guide on how to create fictional names of russian/soviet car makers:
    First one or two letters: russian/soviet city where the factory is located (your choice) NB: the second letter (if present) is always small!
    Example: if your fictional company is located in Tver, then it will be "T" or "Tv"
    Third and fourth letters: company specification
    Following combinations can be used: AZ (car/truck maker or bus maker, most common), MZ (engine maker), TZ (tractor maker), AMZ (car/ truck/bus and engine maker, I've never heard of something like that, but it is possible)
    Full name examples (all fictional):
    VlAZ- car company from Vladivostok
    SaTZ- tractor company from Saratov
    LMZ- engine company from Leningrad
    TAZ- bus company from Tula
