Are you kiddning ? I thought they Ladas made from cast iron ? Lada probably worth more as scrap metal than as a car.

From the looks of that, I'd place a Lada in the same general category as a Yugo.

Hondas aren't bad cars, and IMO run a close second to Toyotas in many areas, especially reliability. Believe it or not, my 1991 Camry is a well-built car that has given me very few problems in it's 99,000 miles.

Ah, yes, toward the end they were equipping them with 1.1L VW engines.

But I bet you still can get much more women with 1991 MB than with 1991 Camry

Hondas still are some of the safest cars in their class like the Accord and stuff. Just because they feel light doesn't mean that they're not safe. They're still made of steel.

You wanna see something even more woeful?
