A "fast" Lada -- photo taken outside of Kiev, Ukraine
As Jesus once said, "the poor will always be with you." And so unlike downtown Kiev, where there is a proliferation of Bentleys, Mercedes, Porsches, etc., in the outskirts of the city are the poor with their Ladas. And even if they don't go fast, this Lada has meaning as a symbol of freedom, although it takes a lot for the average person to dig their way out of the depths of society. At least one can dream of going fast and free.
