    In this segment from Top Gear, I was struck at how no Volga other than the Chaika was reviewed, though I suspect that they'd have found some way to mock and scorn it if they had. Still, I don't view my 3102 in the same light as they portray here. I suspect that Kyle would have the same opinion regarding his M24 and 3102 station wagon, though I will let him offer his own remarks if he replies to this post.

    Eh, in the end I suppose it's all in good humor; hell I wouldn't be caught dead in some of the vehicles they advocate in this program, let alone the clothes they wear. Hah!

    I am not impressed with Top Gear it seems to be geared to a snobbish segment of audience. The things that they say have to be taken with a grain of salt and then you can laugh...
    I think the cold war is still going on in that TV show...
    I love my Volga's...
