I blame Murilee Martin, the Saucy Minx, who started it all with this Project Car Hell post. Typically with such article, everyone would vote for the more hellish project, results would be posted the next day, everyone had a good laugh, and moved on to the next article. Except for a couple of idiots from Michigan who thought that racing a Lada would be a great idea. They actually went to Canada, bought the Lada, and brought it back to U.S. Now in the possession of your idiot author, the Lada sits at a friend’s shop near Boston. As I am trying to figure out my plan to get this car into race-ready state, I look back at the original build for inspiration. The above video is from that build and it’s pretty cool, check it out.
