Zhiguli or Lada? Italian or Soviet?

On my walk this morning I came across another Soviet era car. The tall person said that it looked familiar but he didn’t know its name. Fortunately, the little person was with us. He knows everything about cars and told me that it was a Zhiguli, also known as the Lada. It was first made in 1970 and was produced as part of a collaboration between the Italian car maker Fiat and the Soviet government.

I never knew that!
