An outdoor museum of cars widely used in the Soviet times is located in the Tula region. The 'Auto-USSR' museum draws its support from efforts of the local management and public subscriptions.
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
I saw americans buy and sell them! I think many russians and americans love antique.
Easily restored ….I dont think so .LOTS of hard work and time to restore these …T.V makes people think its easy
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.
Personally, i would nominate this one for “Best Resto-mod”. It’s utterly gorgeous… http://chaika.ee/1_eng.htm
What a classy old girl….. Hirsh how did you find that.
I just stumbled across it one night while reading about old Soviet autos online. I’d love to see that one in person one day, to bad it’s in Estonia.
I see an opening for a car polisher.
Where are the captions?
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.
The Chaika reminds me of a babushka in a scarf.
That’s just sad to see. Every one of those cars was somebody’s pride and joy at one time.
It’s not a museum, it’s a graveyard! Such a pity!
