I knew one green Dacia from late 70's I believe, sitting in front of apartment building in Vancouver, BC's West End. I'm sure that 2 years since I last saw it, it is still there:)

there used to be a Dacia dealer in Forest Lawn, Calgary, Alberta, also one in Edmonton.. The one in Calgary also sold ARO 4x4 trucks. The last Dacia I saw is on a farm west of Nanton, it is off the main highway.. The last ARO I saw was at the wreckers $ one just off Deerfoot Tr, south of Calfrobe bridge. It had a ford ranger v6 stuffed in it.. It got shredded. The Dacia is still there.... Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

The ARO should be addressed here as a piece of Canadian motoring history, someone else from the Calgary area surely remembers these, common colors were navy blue, orange and grey, they came in traditional jeep style and pickup versions. I think they are still made in Brazil, and are (were) sold through a dealer in Texas.... Shocked
