Thread: Volgas in America

  1. #101
    Hi Jerry!

    I don't know the whole story of your heroic odyssey of bringing you car here (I am not being sarcastic), but I think that if you bought the car from a private seller it makes absolutely no difference whether it was a government car once. And 25 years treshold is a LAW in Russia. You can export a 25+ year old car only with a written permission from automotive department ov Moscow State Polytechnic Museum. Of course that permission could be obtained with a little "palm-greasing" if you catch my drift.

    Maybe your car reminds you missus of some bad memories from the homeland....?

    and just like you I think I am set with just one Soviet car for now...300$ per car parking in my building is quite steep, and I have 3 spots

    mockba2-

    Not sure why my wife doesn't like my Volga, but I suspect that it's to do with the general feeling that many of the younger folk in Russia/Ukraine have. They seem to think that Russian cars are of lower quality than those cars produced elsewhere. I got a big laugh when, at the end of a description of why I wanted my 3102, she responded by saying "poor Russia car; I like Toyota." I almost blew a bowel laughing over that one.

    $300x3? Yikes! I sure am glad I am from TEXAS!

    we went to a big car show in Long Island today.

    we met our socialist comrade---1960 Trabant from DDR.

    we compared Volga to 1955 Ford Mainline and found some similarities in bumpers and speedometer.

    and then we took home 3rd Prize in class D (60-65 foreign and domestic, unmodified).

    it was fun day.

    thank you, guys.

    looks like that was the last show of the season in NY.

    we will continue to fight for the prizes in spring!

    and now it's time to do some repairs, so Volga will be going to the shop soon.

    You have a model of your car displayed on the seat. Where is the model from?
