No. No you don't.

Who wants to hear 100 Lada/Skoda jokes?

Why do Ladas have back window defrosters? To keep your hands warm when you're pushing them.

What do you call a convertible Skoda? A dumpster

Those things havent changed in 30-40 years. Why not just import one past the 25 year mark. It's going to be all the same anyway.

I have an odd fondness for crappy cars, having owned - and enjoyed - a variety of crapcan vehicles

that said I am also a firm believer in the fleet mentality. you have to have multiple vehicles to actually enjoy a crapcan car. if I ever went insane enough to get a Niva it would just get towed around behind my F150. I think it would be a hoot to take out the desert and go froading in one

The best thing about having a crap car is the simple fact that you do not have to care too much about it. You care enough to keep it running but that is about it.

that pretty much sums up the problems of the lada.

I thought they went out of business 20 years ago lol

Lots of people will talk ****, but I am from ukraine. The Niva is a beast. Its literally the communist wrangler. It will go through and drive through anything. My uncle uses it as his hunting vehicle. Most of the road infrastructure is nowhere near the US's or Canada's and these things are in their element. I doubt many people have had much encounter with them. They talk about how ****ty they are, yet I know old men with some from the 60's and 70's showroom condition with thousands of miles packed on them. They aren't fast or agile but they will mobilize you.
