Ever wonder what a Russian boneyard looks like? Nyet?

This would be fun to poke through. Gee whiz, I've never found cute chicks in my parts excursions.
Some of these cars look very restorable.

OOPS! I meant this to go in the Stovehuggers section. Sorry about that.

This makes me wonder if there is some Russian military junkyard full of all those military Studebaker trucks the U.S. gave them during WWII!

The cab looks like a Studebaker.

The Soviets thought nothing of copying the work of others. They "reverse" engineered a B-29 to produce their first truly modern long range bomber. There was a documentary produced some time ago about that. So, it could be the cab is Studebaker or a copy.

I love this kind of junk in the trunk:

I didn't know Packard was spelled MDCKBN4......

Models with junk cars, what a concept!

Always good to see pretty ladies from my ancestral homeland... so they aren't all big and hairy and drunk on "woodka"[:o)]

Rambling around on the links to that Russian website, I found this...

If I could get one of these, I would paint it Maui blue and exhibit it with my '51 Land cruiser!

You sure it was the junk in the trunk or the parts on the trunk?

Be sure to see the "customs" page- LOVED it- some of the most bizarre looking stuff EVER! Definitely worth the 10 minutes it took for all the pix to load on dial-up[:I]
