The Zaporozhets was generally considered a sub-optimal car for use on heavy snow during the Russian winter. However, give a Russian mechanic any vehicle and he'll do some Field Expedient Engineering that solves the problem!
Well, actually, the air-cooled 26-horse engine in this thing probably has some issues with the huge tires, not to mention the whole broken-drivetrain-parts thing- but so what? We love the Monster ZAZ!
