Lada

Lada, also known as Zhiguli, is brand of a car from my home city – Togliatti, Russia.  While it’s somewhat known around the world, I was still surprised to find it as a theme to a Flickr blog post.  After all, Lada cars were never known for the beauty of their shapes or lines.

Interestingly, Flickr blog post talks about the end of production for Lada 2107, but none of the images in that post are of that model.  Flickr crew is not to blame though.  There are so many models of Lada cars in existence, and they look so similar, that not even every Russian will be able to tell which is which.  And on top of that, the blog post links to a pool of Lada car images, where pretty much every model is presented.
