    A Lada is a Lada is a Lada. Nothing will ever change that.

    Vaz means Volzhsiy Avtomobilnyy Zavod – Volga Automotive Factory.
    Now traditionally automotive plants in Russia (with just one exception that I know of, ZIL) are named by the city they are located.
    VAZ located in Togliatti (named after a worthless Italian scumbag, by the way), so the plant should be called TAZ – Togliattinskiy Avtomobilnyy Zavod.
    So why is it VAZ then? Because TAZ means “a washbowl” in Russian – which exactly what a Lada is!

      Good to see that Russia is making their own cars again, and look pretty competitive.

      We know that’s something traumatic to you, “Karlo” boy. At least back in your far away, 1930’s dimension.
