Eager to earn some hard currency, the Soviets prepped the Lada for export in 1974 when Fiat finally retired its 124, allowing its slab-sided Commie cousin to compete with a very low sticker price. It was surprisingly popular in Europe, Africa and the Caribbean, where its simple, do-it-yourself maintenance regimen and decent reliability resonated with unsophisticated car buyers. More than 18.5 million Fiat-based Ladas were produced in total, some of which were built under licence elsewhere. Ladas were commonly used as police cars and taxis all over the world — some even racking up half-a-million kilometres — thanks to their uncomplicated design and ease of repair.
You might be able to appreciate this guy's optimism, but no Jeep in the world is going to get through six feet of water.
