Retro Bus Kavzuka
Do you know what Kavzuka has in common with Racha?
While working on developing tourism in Racha, we came up with the idea that an old retro bus would be a perfect fit for this wonderful region, which we would use to travel the local roads. It would be perfect for exploring the area in an atmospheric style.
Over the next few days the idea matured, until we started looking through the classifieds. We had two models in mind: GAZ 66 and KAVZ 685. I got the information that someone was selling the Kavz and the same day Ika and I went to Tbilisi. When we looked in the hall, I saw a sparkle in Irakli's eyes. And we came into possession of Kavza 685!
We found out that the bus belonged to a rugby team. The same day we arrived in Kutaisi on it and the renovation began.
Mengrel doctors Mamuka and Gogita rolled up their sleeves and got down to work. The heart of the whole bus, called "Tamada 8 cylinders" unfortunately had to be dismantled. The patient chosen for the transplant was a police Mercedes Vario 4.0 diesel, an old model, the so-called green one, without a turbine. The best! It was like breathing new life into our baby!
After some extreme tests the bus got an inspection, all papers and the name - Kavzuka. From the brand of the bus: Kavz, and the ending -ka from the love for the region in the central Caucasus - Rachy. Rachy people add the ending -ka to everything they love.
Then we did the renovation our own way for a few more days and started learning how to operate the Kavzuka. And she started learning our routes. Right after the renovation, Kavzuka performed as a wedding bus at our friend's house. And she passed the test with a 5+.
