Illustration for article titled Comrades! All Hail The First-Ever Soviet 24 Hours Of LeMons Car!

You know what's been missing from all the 24 Hours Of LeMons races so far? That's right- Soviet-made cars! It's been tough watching all those races without the accomplishments of Lenin, Stalin, and Trotsky being represented on the track, but that's all going to change at the Detroit event next year, because Teargas has braved the wilds of Canada to bring back a genuine, made-in-the-USSR 1987 Lada Signet! You may remember this car from Project Car Hell Cold War Edition a while back, and making the jump will get you the rest of the story.

Damn, the Peugeot doesn't stand a chance now, makes me wish I hadn't passed on that $600 '51 Tatra back when I was in college (really it was at an auction and I ended up buying a '66 Corvair 4-door instead).

A pic of a Tatra for those not familiar with it:
