The AK-47 of cars

by JozsefC

My car just had an engine overhaul today. Guess by Tinkers' Guild standards she is a toy car (as most standard size 4-bangers from this end of the world would be) but check it out... this is the best looking valve rocker arm from the engine (that concave worn part....well it is supposed to be a bump under normal circumstances lol)

Weird thing is, apart from being a bit jingly loud, she was running ok.

She is a Lada 2105-3, the pride of Soviet/Russian "have to survive under taiga conditions, comrades" engineering :D
