1989 Lada 1600 1.6 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Electrics were all messed up and not much worked. Nothing a day of work couldn't fix, all good now.
Seats are a bit dodgy, will put new ones in though.
When I got it, the timing was 90 degrees advanced, half of the rotor button was missing, and the valve clearances were out by a mile. The car really should not have run. I drove it home a few hours back down the road and it just kept going.
May not be the most comfortable or the quickest, but it will take you where the others can't get, and they just keep on going.
Awesome little car that is severely underrated.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
