Trabants, Wartburgs and Polski Fiats have mostly disappeared from the streets, especially in Budapest. There are much more BMWs, Volvos and Mazdas to see on the streets than these. You can spot some in villages however. Most of these cars are owned by old people who won't buy a new car, and will go to the junkyard after their owners aren't able to use them any more, because these cars have no value. You can get a good Trabant for a crate of beer if you like

Ladas are different, many are still in everyday use because they are durable and the parts are cheap, and the Niva is one of the best off-road cars ever made

The Maruti is simply cool



The engine is smaller than the battery

Lada used to be a common car in the Netherlands until halfway through the 1990's. That is why many people have a negative association with Lada, because the only Lada's they know are now generally 15 - 20 year old models.

New Lada's aren't that bad, for example the Lada Kalina offers a lot of options (power steering, power windows, airconditioning, etc) for around € 8.000 new.

This Volga is funny, it's a bit of a mix between American sedans and small European cars.

Romanian (sorry, I mean French - Renault) Dacia Logan has those for € 8000. And you can add ABS, up to 4 airbags etc. I would say it has better engines and looks way better than a russian Lada.

@ 5:29 I cross the Passaic River and Enter NJ's Largest City , which is undergoing a Urban Renewal spree...

What the hell happened to the English squad on the world cup? They don't seem to be motivated at all...

I had to get something in a electronic shop today, just before Holland got onto 1 - 0 against Japan. The employee wasn't too happy about me asking something, while he missed the goal.

Guys, I have a question to those of you who live in Eurozone:

I still have quite a lot of old West European currencies (mainly German Marks, Pfenigs and French Francs, centimes). But coins, not banknotes. Is there anything I can do with that? I mean is it possible to change those pre-Euro currencies into Euro in banks or in post offices in Germany or France?

I'm no expert , but they might be worth something since there not made anymore. Depending on the age of the Bill ,you could sell it to a collector for alot of money.

Good answer.

You could also try to change them into Euro at the National Banks of the countries that used those money. I know that some of them will change them anytime.
