Russia hasn’t always been all dash cam hilarity and meteor mayhem, it once represented America’s greatest rival and was the source of the world’s biggest communist bloc parties. Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Lada 2103 harkens back to that era, but does it come with a price that will make you see red, comrade?
A chimaera is a mythical animal assembled from the parts of three others, sort of like a Turducken. Ironically, the car named for that mythical beast - from TVR - actually has more homegrown parts than pretty much any other cottage industry car. Now, should you want to describe a car as a chimaera with an air of accuracy then you’d be better off using yesterday’s weird 1990 Miata/Z3/GM3.1 as example. Of course, according to the overwhelming majority of you - 94% Crack Pipe vote - the best idea would be just to change the subject.
