All my accessories are Russian. Very durable, and extremely low maintenance. Great fuel economy and very good cold-weather performance.

Instruction manuals aren't much good though, and some of the wiring is VERY different.

God help me if SWMBO ever sees this. That "Social Psychology of Gender" course obviously didn't do much for me. :D

Hahahahah! Excellent post. I'm saying NOTHING about Hindustan Ambassadors, just in case she ever does read this....! She is older than me after all, I'm sure I can get something in about earlier models...

Now those foot rests are damn handy in new motors and often thought about retro fitting one! the only trouble is that one in the pic is on a lefty!
The louvres are very much the capri's for the 80's style! :D
