The car map of the Soviet Union wascar factories that did not belong to the giants of the automotive industry, but their importance and significance did not become less. One of them is the bus plant in Pavlovo, which produced PAZ-672, well-known to all residents of the country, or, as it was usually called, "pazik". What epithets did not reward him! Often offensive and pejorative, but he, despite all this, regularly wound miles of rural and suburban roads on their wheels and in our country, and in many other countries.
Subsequently, in 1950, the production of buseswas started at Pavlovsk, and then at the Kurgan bus plants. After a series of models, each of which deserves a separate story, in 1968 appeared PAZ-672. It was a small bus, designed for 23 passengers (seats), while the total capacity was 45 people.
But his main appointment still remainedtransportation of people. It has become literally irreplaceable on suburban routes, as well as on country roads and rural roads. Frame construction, considerable clearance and patency, acceptable fuel consumption, excellent maintainability made it a welcome guest in the garage of any collective farm. At that time for PAZ-672, the sale was limited by the general need for such a bus, and therefore was carried out through limits and quotas.
The role of the PAZ-672 bus in the life of the Soviet stateit is difficult to overestimate. It has become an integral part of it. Mobile, fast enough, passable, "pasik" with relative comfort allowed to get to the most remote places, often performing the functions of a staff car. For twenty-two years he worked on the roads of the USSR until he was replaced by new, more modern models.</ p>
