A very recent story.

A young man stole often wine from another man. His brother says now: "My brother used to(!) steal this man's wine". Not much, every time only so much that he and his friends drink.
The man that had the wine reported it several times to the police but the police did nothing.
In this case the wine was poisoned and the thief died. The wine owner is arrested but up till now there is no proof that he put the poison into the wine.
It happened in a village in Hungary, 20km apart from Budapest.

The story is heavily discussed in Hungary.

Another man says that his bacons or straw bales are stolen regularly. The police does nothing. In a certain case the police, too, saw the thief and he was arrested but next day he was free again.
A shop owner says his shop was robbed several times. The police says: "We can't do anything, this is a village of high criminal rates, we're sorry".
The dead thief's brother says: "Yes, it is so: we steal, sometimes we're arrested and then let free again".

Hungary, Europe, 2013.

In the '90s I had a Lada 1200s, with rounded headlights, just like THIS ONE (but my one was red). It broke down in Italy. In auto service young technicians had no idea about that car but later on an older one came and said: "I know it, it's a Fiat 124" :-) He could repair it! :-)

The car on the pic is a Lada 1200. The 1200s has an additional ventilation grille on the "C"-pillar.

As far as I remember Autowaz put Another Lada model into production again in April 2012. It was 2107 for whch demand was high enough to do so. The waiting time for a new car was about 6 months and the price slightly over 5000 Euro.

So, if we are in Ladas, I have to say a short story My very good friend, who runs a Polish branch of a Dutch Forklifts' company was asked by the company's owner to import a new Lada, several years ago. I think it was 2005. Interestingly, the car supposed to be shipped to Cuba, where company has another branch. In Cuba Ladas are/were considered as very prestigous cars.

It took him about a month to clear all shipping documentations in Ukraine and Lada was ready to go. He drove through Poland and Germany to the Netherlands with no issues, however, whilst he stopped for refuelling in former East Germany the Lada attracted incredible interests among passers by. Interest was so huge that even local police appeared and had undertaken very detailed car's and my friends' papers checks. Finally the car arrived to its destination and the big Dutchman could proudly drive her around the island. Actually he was driven.

I never use drive-throughs. [Curmudgeon mode on] God forbid anyone should walk ten feet. [Curmudgeon mode off]

Well, it's not really that, but when I'm hungry and in a hurry I save a lot of time going through the Drive thru. After all, anyone can eat a Big Mac, eat some fries, drink a coke, read a newspaper and make a phone call behind the wheel...

(for some reason the Dutch I think are the only ones calling it McDrive.)
