Our dear Todorow_wantshce obviously has no linguistic knowladge
and is unfamiliar with the history of Torlakian speeches.

I will mention Krashovans, they moved from Timočka Krajina to Caraș-Severin County by the end of the 14th century. After their moving their dialect was isolated from further shtokavian inovations and also from further 'balkanization' that took place in languages and dialects of the so called Balkansprachbund. The dialect of Krashovans, therefore, represent archaic Torlakian.

Here's an example, shtokavian characteristics of that dialect are more than obvious:
