i heart ladas

There is this car here called a “lada”, and I think I’m in love. They’re tiny, boxy, and look like they cost about $0.80. They come in some of the coolest colors. My favorite is the bright orange. Yesterday, I decided - NEW CATAGORY!!! I heart lada - where I will gather together photos of this awesome vehicle for all to admire.

Update: Apparently this isn’t a Lada. As a girl without a lot of expertise when it comes to things with wheels and an engine, I’m going to say “Ladaesque” and leave it at that. The judges rule it as “good”.

    This isn’t a Lada. It’s a Zhyguli. They look quite similar. The difference is Lada is built in Russia and Zhyguli in Ukraine. So you can say Lada is of better quality…

    Lada is a type of Zhyguli. All newer models are called lada and older are called Zhyguli. The names can be used interchangeably. Both cars are made in Russia. Ukraine makes cars called Tavria and they are even uglier :)
