1989 Lada NivaReview
Niva = Off Road — So The Niva. One of my favourites. Never drive in city, unless u want to suck in traffic... =) But if u want to drive a cheap off roader, the best choice to learn and more! This car gave me really good experiences on mud, in water, up on a hill, etc. Hard to drive, indeed, but it does everything u want if u keep it in a good mood, pay attention for it! =)
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: off road capabilities (highly recommended from my part), cheap parts
Cons: consumption, city use
