  1. Impressive custom restoration of a vintage Soviet Era automobile. The work is all very tastefully done.

    Takes much technical skill to adapt parts from non OEM sources(OEM=original equipment Manufacturers).

    When I see this custom restoration I can’t help but imagine a famous Soviet Leader – like Stalin – pulling up to the shop and saying to the owner, “Pimp My Ride!”
