|Hello Lada owners,
Great forum, that I found by accident. I was brought here by the yellow VAZ 2101 that was recently listed on ebay. That took me by surprise to be honest, since I thought there aren't that many of those in the US.
Anyways, I grew up (in Bulgaria) with a '72 VAZ 2101 gray on light green. My dad bought the car used in '82, after waiting for a few years in line for a new one. Those of you that grew up behind the iron curtain know what I am talking about. I don't think I have any pictures of it, sadly. This was the first car I have ever driven and we had in the family until 2001, when we retired the car. If the opportunity is there I would own one here in the US I miss our Zhiguli.
To keep this on-topic, this is my garage:
05/95 BMW E34 540i/6
07/87 BMW E28 M5 on the Tail of the Dragon
And also, I have a 10/84 BMW E23 745i Executive that I am currently restoring.
And if any of you are in the Houston area, I would love to meet up.
