Weird.
Unbelievable.

Why?

Oh boy, Lada
Iím sure we all remember the cars from the Eastern Block coming to Australia.

Lada Samara, Lada Niva, and who could forget the $6,990.00 drive away Niki 650 sigh!

But here are some 2018 Ladaís which seem to sell up a storm in Russia & its neighbours.

Lada Vesta








New Lada Niva, (now called the Lada 4x4) still in production since 1977
Not a bad run.
