A Russian Lada

Now this car was just plain daft. I actually rented it in Sint Maarten from a guy who lived near Philipsberg. He has a whole fleet of them and they all broke down continually. The deal was that wherever you were, whatever time it was he'd come and sort it. And he actually did. He charged $35 a month to rent each car and he guaranteed maintenance. He didn't do bodywork and the doors didn't close that well and the steering wasn't all that firm but they got you where you were going. Usually. But he was a nice guy and one got to know him quite well because you spent a fair amount of time together. I can recommend him.

But not the cars.
