Man Creates 'Soviet Snowplough' from Classic Lada Car Chassis


Tired of struggling through the snow in Russia's cold winter, 59-year old inventor Nikolay Rodin built a snowplough to clear the rads using a classic Soviet Lada car in his Siberian home city of Barnaul. The bumbling beast of car, rattling through the roads on giant caterpillar tracks with a freshly painted Lada chassis, should probably be called the Soviet Snowplow from now on. It took Nikolay three months to convert the old Lada 2107 Zhiguli into a snowplough, which he uses to clear the roads near his home. The caterpillar tracks on Rodin's home-made snowplough allows the vehicle to turn a full 360 degrees. Now his neighbours call him 'Uncle Kolya' - he's become famous in his neck of the city for his ability to restore cars and to build high quality car prototypes. What do you think about clearing some roads with the Soviet Snowplow?

One of Russia's most popular ice drifting competitions is called Ice Drift Madness, and it takes place in the Irkutsk Region around the end of January. Two vehicles drive super close to one another and slide through turns on an icy course, with points awarded for maximum angle of the car during the turn and the closeness of the vehicles during the maneuver.

  • Ever Wanted a Motorcycle with a Sidecar? Then Check Out the Ural Ambassador

    This is the 75th anniversary edition of the iconic Soviet Ural motorcycle, which rolled off the production line in the Sverdlovsk Region of Russia on Monday. The limited series of the Ural 'Ambassador', which is one of the only motorbikes to come with a standard sidecar, will go on sale in the US at the end of December. The bike features a four cylinder engine which generates 41 horse power and a 4-speed gearbox. The Irbit Motorcycles Plant was founded in early 1940s in the Soviet Union and borrowed many design and production ideas from the BMW motorcycles of that time. Nowadays, Ural bikes are well-known in the world. Over 70 percent of the bikes are produced for the American market, 25 percent goes to Europe, while less than 5 percent of the bikes remain in Russia. Other than the traditional accessories such as a spare wheel and first aid kit, American customers will also receive a so-called 'emergency kit' containing a bottle of vodka, canned sardines and mint chewing gum. Only 25 units of the limited edition Ural Ambassador vehicles will be produced and will go on sale for around $16,600.
