The FSO Polonez is a Polish car produced between 1978 to 2002. The Polonez is basically a rebodied Polski Fiat 125p. The car’s name comes from the Polish dance, polonaise.
The Polonez was a common sight in Poland until Poland joined the European Union in 2004. Many Poles then replaced their Polonez with relatively cheap and more modern used cars imported from Germany and elsewhere in Western Europe.
