VAZ 2121 - the Lada Niva
You might not believe me, but the VAZ 2101 was one of the World's most competant 4x4 off raod vehicles. Known as the Lada Niva, the VAZ comes with bullet-proof build and superb off-road ability. In it's home country it had to be so, for in that vast country there are endless miles top be negociated without good roads, and often without any roads.
Spotted at "Red October", a classic Eastern European vehicle meet, held at the National Tramway Museum at Crich in Derbyshire (UK).
