The Best Car There Is, For That Sort Of Money It Costs. — Performance: Excellent for a car of that price range. Acceleration: Quite good for a car with a 75 hp engine and four gears. Build Quality: Very Good -the things that fall off are only the ones you really don't need anyway. ;) Very Sturdy car, really beats some of the modern SUV:s and i am dead serious now, i have driven my Lada where the SUV owners didn't dare to go, waded through deep water and so on. Driving: THere are more comfortable cars, but one feels safe in this one, it is almost like a tractor or a Tank... One also get that smug feeling of: Come on, DO try to for your way into my lane with your brand new Merc or BMW, see if I care about getting a scratch or a dent on my car.

Pros: Sturdy and the absolutely best car for winter roads, unless you get a 4x4

Cons: Not much of comfort or luxury at all. A Very basic car.

Lowered Lada By Alan

Awesome car, ugly, unloved and a bit slow, but it more than makes up for it in character. It has more rattles and squeaks than a baby toy factory, but I love the puzzled looks it gets as I roll by in ... Read More

Lada 1500 Station Car By Thor

Actually it was a '79 Lada 1500. It was very solid, orange, and had a steering wheel like a bus. I liked it a lot, even though it wasn't a very fast car or anything. It was impossible to wear it down,... Read More
