1984 Lada 2101

I've written about my fascination with Eastern European cars in the past. I won't bore you with it again.

This is a very nice Lada 2101. It's located in Hungary.

Lately there have been quite a few old Russian cars listed on eBay. Most, like this one, are still in Eastern Europe. Most of those are being offered for sale by one of the citizens of those countries. There's nothing wrong with that, they're most likely honest people, but there can be the problems of language and both parties not being familiar with export / import procedures. You won't encounter any of those problems with this car. The seller is a former "classic car dealer in Utah" who now lives in Hungary. He claims to have already exported 5 Ladas (among other cars) to the US.

This is a very, very nice Lada. It has less than 50K miles on it.

The asking price for this car is $5000.00. With shipping and small fees, this car will cost you somewhere in the neighborhood of $7500.00 in total. While that's not cheap,and you can certainly find many, many nice cars already in this country for that kind of money, you won't find many cars with the exclusivity and uniqueness of a Lada.

Located in Eger, Hungary, click here to see the eBay listing for this car (which includes a lot of good clear pictures).

JaCG reader, Andre, runs a great website called Lada USA. If you're thinking of bringing a Lada into the US or are just curious about the cars, it's well worth checking out. You can find it here.

Technically, this is not a 2101, but a 21013 - the original 2101 was discontinued in mid-70s. This one combines the weak 1200cc engine with the body style of 21011 (Lada 1300). Probably the least desirable of all early Ladas. The price is quite high, especially considering it doesn't include shipping.
