Mine was the only Russian car on set as of Monday morning 9 am.

I though there was going to be a couple Nivas but it would seem that deal fell through?

Quick update.

There was a Niva used on another set and driven by one of the actors I believe.

Also, we had some mechanical bad luck with my 2104 but the guy who rented his Niva is a "Lada Whisperer" and a professional mechanic so he sorted me out completely.

We did order some parts from LadaMoscow, including an automatic timing chain tensioner so Laduschka will be put to right once the parts arrive.

Well, it's a wrap !!

Filming concluded yesterday but I did take the day off so I could spend some time on set.

A reporter from the local French newspaper came out to interview me and understand a little more about my "Lada addiction".

I got to meet the female lead who was driving my car. Ends up she also speaks excellent French. A real pleasure !!

Thank you kindly !!

It was a very good experience and I got to meet some very interesting people, including the 2 "car guys" in charge of the movie cars.
