Rewind to Moscow, Russia, in 1980

The opening ceremony of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games will take place later this week so it seems fitting to revisit the last time Russia hosted the event. We’re traveling back to Moscow in 1980, a few weeks before the opening ceremony of the Summer Games.

What cars can you identify in the photos below? What one would you most like to have in your garage?

  1. First picture – loads of Ladas and Moskvitches, a GAZ Volga 21, and two 24s. Also, in the background, there is an UAZ 469.
    Second picture – two RAF 2203 “Latvija” (the green and blue vans), and a red and white Ikarus. And of course, lots of Ladas. 🙂
