Should Hold You Until Quitting Time: Lada Selecta

Lada Selecta

If you are in to customizing Russian cars (and let’s face it, who isn’t?), then Lada Selecta is the site for you. Choose a body style and go hog wild.  Paint colors, ride height, rims and tires, and roof racks are just a few of the options you can choose. 

Click past the break to get your Soviet auto fix.

I came up with the nifty orange 2102 with a cloth roof in the lead image.  What would your Lada look like?

There is a sizeable following for these ordinary little cars in eastern European countries and Russia.  Only Dropped is a car club devoted to Ladas.  The video below is from one of their meets.

    I discovered the Beetle, Porsche, Bus, etc Selecta ages ago. The kid loved it so much that I sent the author a little paypal love.

    I wanted to give it a six inch lift, but you can't do that.

    Wow, that's nice! I tip the balance even further into wagonland, keeping it simple.

    Wow, I create a really nice whitewalled blue bumper-less wagon and clicked the wrong button and lost all my super cool mods….. Do all you guys understand Russian?

    Lost an hour after seeing this on Need That Car. Here are mine. Twitpic embeds suck, but I'm too lazy to re-upload somewhere else. :-P
