    Probably get a great deal on one from Pripyat. You know as long as you don't mind if it glows or something. Of course shipping would be a "bear." Ba-dump bump.

        That is the real Lada, they rust but the drivetrain is like an AK47 - almost indestructible. During my deployment to the Republic of Georgia, I almost bought one. There was not much left from the chassis, but it still drove EVERYWHERE:

          I stand corrected, every time I am in Qc in the winter, it is so cold, they don’t salt, because it won’t work at -40

            A friend of mine and his wife had one in the mid 80s.
            It turned out to be a real pile of crap that you couldn't get parts for.
            They dumped it on a poor soul and it ended up being scrapped about a year later.
            I personally wouldn't buy one.

              No matter how ugly the car or how much of a lemon it was, there are cult followings for every one. The allure of a project for some folks or having something that is quite uncommon trumps the poor financial decision it would be.

                Went to buy a compressor off Kijiji (Canadian Craigslist) a couple of years ago and the guy had this Lada that was in awesome condition.

                He was blown away that I knew what it was. I told him I hadn’t seen one in close to 30 years!

                He said he bought it from the Toronto Classic Car Auction.

                    Okay, I am a little confused (more or less the usual state), but if it is a four door, does make it a 132, and does it have a 2.4 Dino engine in it? If it does, jump on it!

                      That is exponentially cool, I would drive that through mud and shallow lakes.

                        Now, if you get your hands on a Fiat 132, with the 2.4 liter V6 , I have seen one states side, but co-worker had one when he lived in Poland, he told me it flew. But doesn’t everyone?

                        Correct, always wanted. Citroen DS, but someone always beat me to it, 15 years, quite happy with my Duster. Didn’t need to get a grey suit and a fedora.
                        Good thing, you are still alive
