Hi nautilus  welcome to LOCSA, we trust you will enjoy your stay......

If you need any help on the forum, either post something under the appropriate section, or send a PM to one of the Admins or Moderators.

We would really appreciate pictures of your Niva.

Hi,

 Thanks for the welcome to this forum. I'm from Canada, been on the Ladausa.net forum for awhile. I have been a long time Niva Lover, first vehicle was a 97 Niva. Owned 2 Niva's before (1997 1.7i, 1996 1.7i) and recently purchased a new to us 98 Niva 1.7i for my girlfriend, which I'm in the process of working on.

 Posting a few pictures of my last Niva, from the last trip I took with it across the Mid-West U.S.. Got lots of attention as no one had ever seen one. Except a Ukrainian couple I met in Montana by chance. They couldn't believe that Lada's were sold in Canada for 20 years. Unfortunately in the last photo you can see the end result of avoiding a deer in the mountains of Montana. [attachimg=1][attachimg=2][attachimg=3][attachimg=4]

Thanks for the greetings. Nobody was injured in the roll over, as I was the only occupant luckily and the worst I had was a concussion. I will post some pics of the new Niva when I have a moment. Majority of mechanical work has been completed. Doing body work now. My first time attempting to be an auto body man. This forum has been quite helpful for the mechanical portion of the repairs. So a big thanks for that.
