Ecuador: Where the Cars of Communism Come to Die

Lada Taxi

A funny thing happened on my trip to Ecuador, I saw something peculiar in the vast array of gas chugging fume ridden automobiles. I saw a old Russian Lada. I didn’t just see 1 mind you, but a fleet of these tributes to communistic pride. Most were painted taxi yellow but a few muchachos supped up their Lada’s into marvels even the Russians could dig.

But for the time being the country is safe from the retched Trabant, the East German’s sad answer to the Honda.
