The Lada Niva

I first caught a glimpse of this amazing vehicle on a climbing trip to Spain back in 2008.  It struck me as an amazing mix of compact style, durability, and tankishness.  Since coming to Russia, my infatuation with it has only grown. This is a small collection of the beauties I’ve spotted around Moscow and environs.

I’m not much of a car guy, never having owned one myself, but one day, I think I’ll have a few of these.  A few because I’m told they don’t run so hot, but that never stopped someone from buying a classic Oldsmobile, did it?
