    First GAZ-A automobiles in the Karakum desert during the Gorky-Pamir-Moscow-Gorky rally.

    This year, Gorky Automobile Plant (GAZ) celebrates 85 years since the start of production in 1932.

    During its Soviet period, GAZ produced cars that became the classics of the automotive industry.

    Today, GAZ is the largest automobile manufacturer in Russia.

    From passenger cars to trucks and armored vehicles, see the golden oldies of the Soviet Union in Sputnik's photo gallery.

      Darrell R, A few of them have made it over here (I don't know how.) even during the Cold War. I've seen them myself. The problem for their owners here has always been that there was no way to obtain spare parts. As a result they never became popular. I would love to see them sold here too provided the spare parts problem was solved.
