I guess my first reply got lost in the maze. Yes, that is correct FourWheelDrift, both man and machine.

PS: That was fast.

The 1967 to 1974 Zaporozhets (Запорожец) ZAZ-968M was roughly styled similar to the 1961 NSU Prinz 4.

Two other rear-engined cars with roughly similar looks but significantly different size and horsepower were
the 1960 Chevrolet Corvair--Motor Trend magazine's Car of the Year 1960 and
the 1963 Hillman Imp.

Default ID:608; URI Desert Runner police paddy wagon

ID:608, you are an Uri Desert Runner -- an off-road vehicle made in Witvley, Namibia since 2001.

Ewert Smith, a local Angora goat farmer based in Windhoek, Namibia designed the Uri all-terrain truck in 1995.

Uri is a Khoisan Nama word for "jump".
cf: क्यों "उडी" मारता है? -- Bombay Hindi

The truck was originally purpose-designed to participate in local dune and scrub off-road racing events at Koes, Namibia.
Jumping off tall sand-dunes and being momentarily airborne is typical in these events.

Tested in the Kalahari desert, the African agro-, police, military and mining industries[De Beers/Anglo American Diamond Mines] ordered many of these trucks.

The company is called Uri Vehicle Manufacturing (UVM).

Being built with Toyota mechanicals is probably why it bears passing resemblance to the mid-sixties Toyota FJ-45.

Engine options are Toyota's 2-liter or 3-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel or
2.2 or 2.4 liter four-cylinder petrol engines. It comes with a five-speed manual gearbox.

Uri vehicles are also manufactured under licence at Pretoria, South Africa.

This specimen is a South African Police Services vehicle meant for transporting arrested suspects. South Africans call a pick-up truck a "bakkie". This is a bakkie converted to a police paddy wagon.

The color scheme is typical of vehicles attached to Johannesburg suburban police stations.

ID:609 1985 Karenjy Mazana

The Karenjy was an all-terrain vehicle developed during the '80s by a group of engineers at the Institut d'Malagasy Innovation (GII), located in Antananarivo, an autonomous province of Madagascar.

This vehicle was introduced at the Paris Salon of 1985.


The body was fiberglass and comes in two different versions; Karenjy Iraka (Iraq) the 2 wheel drive, and 4x4 version called Karenjy Mazana (Madagascar).


Some units were exported to Europe by the Company "Seesam International" based in Paris.


The vehicle was fairly complete and reliable, as the Malagasy administration used some for long drives, but unfortunately it was a commercial failure.


Another source :


1985 – 1988 Karenjy, Tananarive
This Madagascan company presented the Mazana off-roader in 1985. It used a 2068cc Renault diesel engine and 4x4 transmission with a 5-speed gearbox. The Iraka was a second model, resembling a Volkswagen Beetle in appearance. It used a 1397cc Renault petrol engine and had only two driven wheels. The project manager, Rabearivelo Andriamalagasy, planned to make 500 cars per year and sell complete production lines to the other African nations but this plan was apparently not fruitful. Neither was a new Citroen BX diesel-based model called Tily, which in 1987 was under development in collaboration with the French company Tejlhol.
