Re: Nova 17i SORNed

I drove up from Devon to have a look at this car on 16th May. It looked fantastic, the bodywork appeared immaculate and the engine sounded fine. Admittedly I didn't test drive it, (due to ULEZ), and I was somewhat suspicious of the MOT which had been issued on 7th May mainly due to the fact that it ...

Re: New Russian models

I like the look of the Volga. It has retained a classic Volga grill and is, in my opinion, easily identifiable. The other two just look like so many other modern SUV's. They all look so alike these days. All individuality seems to have gone out of the window.

Re: Lada Riva 1.3 Select 5-speed.

Not really a major problem if they haven't. It's a "safe" engine, i.e. non-interference. My father had one break at 60mph. Cost £25 and a few pennies to supply and fit a new belt. Admittedly that was back in the 1990's. A colleague at work was most "put out" when I told him, (i.e. thoroughly p'd off...

Re: Free Lada Pins and Badges.

OK. Zel has bagged the anniversary badge, (No. 6), and one of the larger pins, (No. 2) Neil, I presume you mean the gold coloured tie pin, (No. 7). I should have made it clearer, No.s 1 and 2 are also tie pins. I still have one No. 2 left if that is the one you meant. If you gentlemen would care to ...

Re: 1990 Lada Niva COSSACK

This is the third or fourth time in the past two years this one has appeared for sale. I see the "Cossack" decals have been removed now.

Re: Today I mostly .....

When I was younger and still lived at home in the days before mobile phones I fitted a CB in my car, one each in my Dad's, brother's and sister's cars and a base station in the house. It was really helpful. I still have all the sets and antennae in storage at home, thirty years on! God knows why!

Re: Today I mostly .....

Funny you should ask Zel that. I asked him the same question when he was talking about the mpg from his former Niva under the General section. Although I referred to a possible handbrake malfunction.
