Bashing the brand
Any jokes about brand names, I will start off with a couple of Brit oldies to set the idea:

(The Lada was a Russian export, er, car for those who wonder.)

Why do Ladas have heated rear windows?
So you can keep your hands warm push starting them in winter.

What do you call the Lada driver's manual?
A bus time table.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

RE: Bashing the brand
How do you double the value of a Lada?
Fill the gas tank.

A guy wanlks into a garage and says, "I want a windshield wiper for my Lada."
The mechanic says, "Sounds like a fair trade."

You got poor eyes, thick fingers and a Samsung tablet as well then, P?! Big Grin

Good ones though, I forgot them.

Now, the Wankle, what a name to ponder on in English . . .

RE: Bashing the brand
Have you guys ever heared of the "Trabant"?

600ccm 2-stroke engine
Top speed 60mph flat out
Weight: 600kg (iirc)
NO fuel gauge
MANUALLY operated wipers (no $hit!)
And the body was made out of cardboard
Its nick name was "racing cardboard"

Makes a Lada look like a Lincoln Continental!

My colleagues in the US also refer to one of the "big three" regularly as "FoMoCo", but they also seem sometimes to be mixing up the syllables. Wink Wink Wink Wink

Ceterum censeo, religionem delendam esse

Yup, had a ride in the military (!!) version of it. like a kiddies toy jeep powered by a lawn mower engine. Worth a fortune here now.

Sounds like the King Midget made in the USA by a couple of guys in their garage at home over 20 year period of time.
