Finally got my Lada! After an initial unsuccessful attempt to import one from Russia, I found the one that I wanted in Hungary and it is here. I will try to post pics tomorrow. It is a red 21013 ( essentially a 2101 with minor cosmetic differences ). No rust anywherel although the outside is a bit dull and needs a nice detail. The interior is mint as are the mechanics. The only thing it needed was an oil change and a new alternator belt. The car appears to have been very well maintained with all other fluids clean, new plugs, wires, air filter etc.. The engine runs like a clock, suspension is tight and drives awesome! Got my temp. plate and waiting for the title. The only thing I did to it was replace a radio with a JVC bluetooth/usb head unit and a new pair of rear speakers. I had one of these growing up in the good ol USSR and really excited to have one here.

Pics to come!

Sweet, do post pics. If you have any problems with titling I may be able to help with that too.

Cool, thanks! Hopefully I won't. I had the bill of sale, the original title and customs papers that I submitted to my currency exchange. They gave me a temp. plate and said wait for 3-4 weeks for the real plates, a bit longer for the title.

What container company did you use to bring the car here from hungry?
I have a friend in Germany and I'm thinking I should bring a few to Canada in a 40ft from hamberg.
I go to the rail yards almost every day

I used a shipping company to do it, so I don't know which container they actually used. The guy I bought it from shipped it from hungary to bremerhaven. From Bremerhaven, a company called TransCar gmbh shipped it to Baltimore. Oceania shipping helped handle the customs, and then I used Montway auto shippers to deliver it to my door.

What was the total cost of importing it, if you do not mind sharing?
