Subject: RE: BS: Slow car worship
I had a Lada Riva Estate. It was like a little red tank, and I loved it.

Finally, the thing that puts oil in the ashtray broke and as this was some time before the Russian economy got back together, finding spare parts was like searching for kitten feathers. All the Ladas in our area had been bought up and shipped back to Russia to be sold on. It was just too uneconomical to repair in the end and it went to the scrappers.

Mind you, it was by no means slow and it started on the coldest days when almost every other car refused!
