Russian traffic in Moscow

18 Satellite Jam

Satellite Jam

This kind of traffic jams are pretty often in Moscow. The reason for them is often the top security measures that are needed by the governmental agencies to protect the important people while their ride. This time the jam got on the sat images in Russian analogue of google maps so it now can be seen from space too. Clicking on the image can reveal the map
itself so that one can scale it or move up/down to see the real size of the jam. It's interesting that the vip cars are not seen on those sat images. The reason for this that according to the same security regulations road should be closed far before the motorcade appears. And inside there are some shots "from the ground".
Russian eight wheels car

13 The Eight Wheeler

The Eight Wheeler

Eight wheelers could be a good solution for Russian terrain roads and you still can meet some of the concepts from the Soviet past on the roads. They had a flat bottom and the additional four wheels mounted higher than the first four ones so that in case you get stuck too deep then the new pair of axes get into play towing the car out the deep mud. For some reason those stayed
only in concept mode and like this one bare the old white-on-black plates, those give clue that it comes back from seventies or early eighties, but is still used. Guys collecting old Soviet transportation relics can pay a lot for one of those, even if it doesn't come from any popular brand but was made by some garage genius with his hands alone.

42 Glass Parking Lots

Glass Parking Lots

The main problem of drivers in any big city including Moscow is where to park, especially when you are in the centre and there seems to be no free lots for a few decades more. In Europe there are loads of parking paid space, and they even have special buildings just for autos. But here in Russian that’s
not a tradition yet, though, it really should be. One way of solving the problem is constructing multistory automated parking garages, and Muscovites are about to make these glass buildings widely spread (of course, if they will manage to save up money enough to cover enormous expenses).
Russian moto drum

The Moto Drum

The contemporary Russian minstrels have a new approach to mobile music. One can easily carry guitar or microphone, but there is always a problem
with a drum station. "We'll put it on the bike", decided the guys, "Let it follow the band on its own wheels". And so be it.

Russian Mercedes Tuning

28 Brand New Mercedes, Not

Brand New Mercedes, Not

Before After When one has an old W124 Mercedes he can just live with this or he can't. If he can't he can build his very own new model of the car to shock the neighbors and friends, like
this guy from Rostov on Don Russian city. Such kind of tuning looks bit like the Middle Eastern modifications, I wonder if the doors are being opened in Lambo style.

Russian Armaments Exhibition

The formal procedure of the Exhibition opening was started with a grand marching of girls wearing hussar costumes. Before the show began any one could look at the displays – the creations of Russian plants were right at the allotted spot, and
there one could see not only the weapon of destruction, but totally peaceful tractors and excavators as well. The interesting part is that the most of the technical units in it are similar to those used in war machines.
