Hi :D Anyone who drives a Lada is welcome here 8) I must get another Riva at some point. Your one does look very solid, the front wings on my 97 1.5 saloon on a P plate were starting to bubble but no signs of that on your one

Not as bad as you'd expect. 80mph is ok, if a little noisy ( turn up the radio) It appears to have been pampered its whole life, not a spot of rust -- and I'm being serious. 20,000 miles, full service history etc etc.

Me too, it wasn't looking good. Glad you rescued it.I hope the spots on your drive are from your previous daily... the Lada looks mint, btw. Loving Project Pandamonium - superb concept and only 23 notes so far!R U '02Gimp or Bladerunner?Anyway, welcome - this forum is a warm refuge from snobs, chavs etc, and I like to think it's populated by the most open-minded breed of petrolheads.

Not yet no, 80 was once! I rarely exceed 55mph. I'm having to change a leaking fuel hose today.

I knew the Lada looked familiar! In some ways it would have been better if it wasn't Torsten's cos it would have meant that there is another good one out there. This world is too small though. :D
