Soviet means of transportation. Just self-descriptive.
OMG revisiting Soviet era transportation is going back to some 50 years ago. So much poverty, outdated technology and backward means of transportation. Why oh why everything had to be substandard and inferior in poor old Soviet Union? I feel sorry for all the people who lived through that time
OMG I soooo want to be humped by a camel!
There are no camels in my country, only my big and wet camel toe. And nobody wants to hump my camel toe
i like the offroad volga
As a small boy I often ride the Metro and VI Lenin would conduct metro cars himself. He would stare at me with wee beady eye and pointy beard. I dont know how he drove train while looking only at me, but here he is in foto #79.
Nice collection fotos!
We saw most of these in previous posts. Such as the 4×4 Moskvich, the “hedgehog” machine gun system and the picture of the wartime deer. The rest is all photoshopped. I can see pixels.
Is that Gagarin on picture #39?
BTW, what’s that sports car? I like it!
Yup, he is.
And that car — some prototype probably.
Sports car in #45 is a Matra D-Jet circa approx. 1964
It is. More expensive in Russia than abroad, BTW.
Just like most consumer electronics. Did you know a MacBook air costs 3 average monthly wages ?
Thanks for the info!
Picture 11 shows Fiat 1800.
Mercedes S-Class … very Soviet indeed.
Take a look on the license plate :
6429 DZ 67 <<== it’s a French number, so it’s probably a tourist…
Tantalising as usual – great pics with no info! A lot of them are not self descriptive at all
Questions knowledgeable Russian folk..
1) Those jets (about pic 34 what are they?
2) What is the Sports car with the guy in uniform?
3) THe one with the large canal – is that the big one that links Moscow with somewhere that Stalin built?
I dont understand why police used BMW as per last pic… they were hella expensive back in the day.
Go to the post from a few days ago – http://englishrussia.com/?p=2273
Detailed account of how militia acquires BMWs.
Even though they cannot really be labeled as ‘consumer electronics’, they are still quite expensive in Russia. More expensive than abroad, I might add.
detailed account of militia acquiring a BMW.
Although not really ‘consumer electronics’ they are still quite expensive in Russia. More expensive than abroad, even.
So what you a say is the police chase BMW and “aquire” it then mark it as their own and drive around in nice car? wow that is easy
Indeed. Why make things hard if it can be done easy ?
Thank car in Picture 13 would have looked even better than the Gaz 13 they made. To bad the government didn’t approve.
Foto #26 is famous Soviet “Krazy Komrade” He believe he may achieve orbit on special motor-bike. If that not bad enough, he convince sexy lady that she could orbit also. Notice sexy lady riding outside of spacecraft!
Inventor of the wingsuit?
