i base my opinion on car manufacturing. which lasts longer - a russian built 4 tonne lada, or an 8 tonne cadillac lump with shiny wheels.

So the 1976 Dodge pickup I owned, that had 260,000 miles on the original engine was poor quality? Quality Russian Cars is an oxymoron.

Personally, I have some real issues with Americans that buy foreign cars.

Okay, there is the official race route. US 60 from Phoenix to St. Johns, Arizona. That encompasses elevations from 1100 ft. to over 9000 ft. If the Lada makes it out of the Salt River Canyon, I'll be amazed.

Hmmmm....good route but not the best.I have watch about a year ago on TV that there is a road- i cant call it highway because its a road for two cars or a bus and a half car Wink -which is in an elevation about 18000-20000feet for 300km and more in Pakistan mountains.It takes them about 8 years to ends and they said that its the highest road of the world.
I guess that they test Ladas there... Wink Laughing Laughing Laughing

I see two Mercedes Buses(70s Models!!!)A Toyota Land Cruiser of 96(not surprised for this great 4x4)and a VW transit 4x4(Wagon)


Ohhh....almost forgot....the buses are pulling from a Lada... Laughing Laughing Laughing Wink Wink Wink

Excellent engines,poor quality(interior parts),ancient and stolen designs.No personality cars at least until 2000.After 2000 they have made some steps forward in design,and quality.

Why shame?They have great quality cars and they have brands like BMW,Mercedes,Porche,Audi etc that they sell their great cars all over the world.Can anyone find such a good looking(and not only) car like the new BMW 645 csi?

We can discuss for centuries in order to find the best but i think that every brand has good and bad points...Its a personal choice and depends on what we like more in a car...Others need safe,others speed,others quality etc...and others need boxes on wheels and buy Italians Very Happy Of course i dont mean Ferrari or Masserati(its another category)

You do know that the debate over high revving low displacement engines vs. low revving high displacement engines has been going on for decades.

I'd say more, but it would be interpreted as political.

To bring this back on-topic, ask yourself why American Airlines would fly an AN 225? There are many more practical cargo planes. I like the AN 225, but would choose a C-7 or a C-5A.

BTW, the repaint looks good

To make it clear...

I just make a quick and short analysis about Japanese cars according to my small knowledges.
My comment doesnt mean that they are not value for money and i think that im not reffering to prices at all.


I think i have to change my sig to.... Anyone Laughing Wink

Friendly... Thumbs Up!
