It looks nice except it looks like it needs some new springs-the mudflaps are dragging on the ground!

@edgarblythe,
It's just what we old folks like. No fancy electronics in dashboards and something no one would want to steal.

Museum visitor gazes intently at the famous 1966 Canvas Chassis model which appeared during a Russian steel shortage.

@Blickers,
What was that car in the Pink Panther movie, where he says "neat huh", slams the door and the car falls apart.

@edgarblythe,
The original VW Bug design was made so that a cheap car could be mass produced and provided by the government. A true communist car!

If this guy got any bigger or the car got any smaller he could put the car in his pants pocket and walk around with it.

Transcript of conversation in Soviet Ministry of Transportation, May 1971:
Yes, Comrade, I said I want the cars in avocado. It is part of Comrade Brezhnev's plan to cleverly capture American auto market by making our cars the same color as their washing machines and refrigerators.

@Blickers,
That's Jeremy Clarkson. I doubt he's ever visited a museum or a library or anywhere like that for that matter.

@izzythepush,

@Blickers,
You wouldn't say that if you lived over here, he's constantly on the telly advertising Amazon Prime all of the bloody time. He's also doing a show for them.

@Blickers,
Of course he landed on his feet, he went to public school, that lot always do alright, plenty of connections like David Cameron.

He looks like my best mate, and my son, who is autistic, points this fact out every time he comes over. It's been going on for three months now, and I'm still not tired of it. My mate doesn't feel the same mind.
