But in Russia, they prefer quick and very painful over slow and just painful. Instead of a drill, Russian use an old Opel Astra with a towing hitch and a friend to hold your head while they pull the offending tooth out. Some vodka might have been used… for medical reasons, obviously.

The internet is filled with video of people having their teeth pulled with pliers. There seems to be a consensus that 32 is the maximum number of teeth you need, but you can do just fine with just one or two. After all, it's not like you need to chew alcohol.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
