    A Lada Niva would only need a 9V-battery, and few drops of Vodka to cross Siberia.

    What is this “plinth” and when can I have one. Ohh the magic of Russia… Toyota Prius, eat your heart out.

    looks like an old OPEL hatchback, made by GM in Germany (early 80’s?).

    I’d like to build one of these– the designer should make his plans available for purchase, or sell kits to modify your own car. I can see this working with many models of car.

    This is just what we need– take back the power from the oil companies, they are like drug dealers. I will charge my car with a windmill.

    lol those meters are Soviet-era. I have similar models with a smaller glass, I like them because they are very tough and hard to break. I once left some apparatus under rain outside, and not a drop went into the meter! Finally, a well-made Russian product, and cheap too. Believe it or not they still sell them at: http://www.ampermetr.ru/sheet.htm
