    Out door car museum = rust park. That collection of cars will not last long outdoors.

    It looks like some of the farms around here where I live.

    Seen picks like these in the USA just on on the back of massive lawns with trees growing through them such a waste …..so many could easily be restored

    Canadians and people of Israel like old cars as well

    What a shame for that Chaika to be rusting in a field. I think they only made about 3100 of them? It’s a rare car and restored they sell for big bucks. Relatively few were built and the number of them in North America is but a handful. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the rest of them are gems in the rough too. What a waste.

    Ohh… Volga.. I had a neighbor once that owned a Volga in which he put a Romanian tractor engine. The good ol’ days :)))

    with scrap here now being $10 for just 100 lbs, (steel) old things do not last so long.

    Only one Lada wreck :) Where are the rest of Lada’s, still on roads ?

    That’s not a museum. The machines will simply rust and turn into dust with time. It is not a museum when you don’t even TRY to preserve exhibits.

    A “car graveyard” would be a better description…

    I’d love to have an old two tone GAz Chaika.

    I see an opening for a car polisher.

    Where are the captions?

  13. Ivana Benderova says:

    Ahhh. The good ol’ days. When Russians modeled their cars to look like american ones… because american cars were actually desirable.

      I’ll take a ’50s style Chaika over the ’56 Packard that obviously inspired it’s designer ANY DAY. No comparison. The Chaika is absolutely gorgeous, the ’56 Packard, well there’s a good reason that’s one of the last Packards to every be designed… Boring, stale, ugly.

  14. Bub says:

    The Chaika reminds me of a babushka in a scarf.

  15. Alan says:

    That’s just sad to see. Every one of those cars was somebody’s pride and joy at one time.

  16. Alexander Roman says:

    It’s not a museum, it’s a graveyard! Such a pity!
