Welcome to the even rarer group of people who own a sedan and a wagon! I believe it takes a certain level of masochism!!
Thank you.
Masochism or not - I am not sure , but It's definitely some kind of of abnormality .
Pretty sure it is a very rare group though.
I believe less then 0.000001 of people in the world own both - sedan and wagon.
Because of this , we should be legally allowed to use prefix "Lord" before our names. :roll:

White with red interior - such a nice color combination - I am so jealous :?
Looks like your car is in much better shape than mine.

She’s actually Robins Egg Blue .... and currently undergoing extensive bodywork and a respray. New inner and outer rockers, new front wings, new front scuttle... and a general retro conversion from a ‘74 with federal bumpers to a pre ‘73 with the chrome bumpers.

Blue is cool too.
But if I'd get to choose - I'd pick white/red or light grey/red combo.
I'm planning to bring my wagon to euro specs too.
But sadly , right now I don't have any funds for the body work.
So , for now I will fix as many things as I can without touching the body.

First thing I did - I got rid of the broken plastic grill.
Likely I had a chrome grill hanging in my garage.
Looks much better already.
Don't mind Lada's badge.
