Re: Lada Niva 4x4 2L twincam

And it appeared to sell at £10k - one bid - I was surprised it did but then not surprised either as it looked super fab.

Looks like Lada's are now out of my price range.....

1997 Niva 1.7i for sale

I'm torn on this but have been offered another car and really I cant keep everything - so with some reluctance - for sale is my Niva. Thought I'd offer it to Lada people before anybody else - so just advertised here at the moment. If nothing happens here in a couple of weeks I'll put it elsewhere. P...

Re: Lada Niva

Wonder if he knows you can buy a brand new one for not much more. Really nice red one on ebay - I only saw it on ebay for about a day so I assume sold for 3K buy it now or around there - near me in the south east - and that looked much better than the blue one (nice interior, alloy wheels, shiny shi...

Re: Niva for sale

No longer for sale - I've changed my mind - apologies for anybody who was excited and interested.

It's too 'interesting' and quirky etc and makes me smile.

Re: Niva for sale

The buying price was the tip of the financial iceberg - as I'm sure you are aware Belfast Fella When you buy a project one is full of optimism and hope and 'oh it just needs and oil change and the tyres pumping up'. Wrong - I never learn. Lot of work and actually a fair bit of money to get this Niva...

Niva for sale

As some of you may know I have rescued and brought a Niva back to life I'm not sure if I want to keep it as a run around - for me the challenge is the rescue and bringing it back to full health again. So with this advert I wanted to see if there is anybody out there in Niva world who might want one ...

Re: Niva Hussar

Don't get me wrong Geoff - I like the way it looks too - but that's because I like all strange, wierd, abnormal and silly cars. I think the body design, proportion etc is spot on I'll put some miles on it this weekend and see how it goes - there should be two Ladas travelling together on Friday and ...

Re: Niva Hussar

I have done a little bit - but need to get the current 'project' finished (rebuild v8 engine in another toy) - otherwise I'll have too many piles of parts and 'elle dans la maison' will get even stroppier with my car parts spending habit. But what I have done is; 1. jet wash the underside - really g...

Re: Niva Hussar

sledge will be the first item to lose, followed by a good clean

I'll send a couple of pics once its home

If its any good maybe nice Riva for sale - 1988, 60k miles 1500 - whats it worth?
