What Do You Call a Lada with no Roof? Cabriolada

Lada cars are known for their mechanical simplicity, lack of any real styling cues and the very thick sheet metal used to fabricate their bodies. The latter definitely gave these teens some problems when they hacked off the roof of this Lada Riva, a car from the 1970 that only recently (finally) went out of production.
However, given the fact that the Riva/2107 is in fact based on a Fiat 124 (a decent car of the 1960s) which was drastically simplified mechanically to bring costs right down. Not many people are aware, though, that the Lada Riva/2017, along with the Fiat 124, the Tofa_ Murat (Turkish rebadged version) and remier 118NE (made in India), total around 15-million manufactured cars - so there are a lot of them around to chop up and turn into convertibles.

If you make an incorrect cut while hacking off the roof, for instance, you can just discard the entire Lada and try again with a new one. Don’t bother repairing it as just getting another car is way simpler and not even that expensive, and with 15-million of them out there, short supply won’t be bothering you. Naming your creation won't be a problem, either, as 'Cabriolada' is an excellent name for it, so that aspect is covered as well.
