I'm putting everything I own/do related to cars in this thread, it was originally just for the Samara. I currently own two Ladas: After spotting the Samara saloon on ebay, I sent a reasonable offer for it on the 5th of this October, woke up on the 6th with the offer accepted and had it back home on the same day. The previous owner had kept hold of it for 12 years, taking it to eastern european car rallies and such and occasionally using it to tow a motorcycle trailer. I have a fair amount of spares for it (replacement steering rack, headlight unit, interior bits, etc) After picking it up, I had a reasonably stress free trip up the motorway before I took it for a stretch round an industrial estate and the fuel filter disintegrated, clogging up the carb and leaving me cleaning jets at 1AM by the roadside. I have also had some vacuum leaks among other issues but nothing that can't be fixed, it's back running again and luckily the carb has been swapped for a weber, rather than the original setup with a stack of additional emissions control stuff shoved on. It's a 1500 with about 47k on the clock. One of the first things that needs to go is the dealership optional extra steering wheel, I'd like a standard factory wheel in place of it. I also have a 1979' Zhiguli that I bought in Russia recently and drove home after staying with a close friend, I'll be posting more about the trip soon. Better photos to follow soon, I'll update the thread periodically as things progress.
