Lada on Lada Crash in Russia

Lada cars might to strange and underpowered now, but back in the day, they were really cool. They were at the peak of their popularity in Russia and the rest of the Eastern bloc in the last two decades of the soviet era.
Originally, Lada was only the export badge for cars made by AvtoVAZ. IN Russian, the name means ‘ship’ and the badge on the cars are symbolic of a Viking ship sailing away, which is fitting considering they steer and brake like they are on water.

In a strange sort of way, these two Lada Rivas look kind of cool, one even having tinted windows. And since they are made of thick steel sheetmetal, they don’t bend much in accidents, which is good for the repair bill and bad for the driver’s safety. It’s not that farfetched to say the whole accident cost about $100 in damage.

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.
