Some folks get positively obsessed about being different. It starts with little things, like a black T-shirt, maybe a studded belt. Later the obsession is manifested by a custom skull tattoo on your ankle, maybe a hoop earring or two…and the next thing you know you are driving into downtown Québec City to score some E on your way to a rave in a Lada Niva Cossack. Want to be different, kids? Beware of the consequences. Find this 1997 Lada Niva Cossack offered for $1,850 CAD ($1702 USD) in Montréal, Québec, Canada. Tip from Zach.
First a few questions: 1. What the heck is a Lada Niva Cossack? 2. How is a car from 1997 so rusty? Okay, the second question is easy — just see question number 1. The Lada Niva is a compact sport utility vehicle built by Russian OE AvtoVAZ starting as far back as 1997. The Cossack was an edition exported to the United Kingdom and this one somehow made its way across the pond to live and rust in Canada.
Under the hood of the Niva Cossack is a 1.7 liter engine supplied by General Motors, which is probably the highlight of the Lada driving experience. Everything else is going to be a thoroughly Russian affair, which means expect to spend a lot of time cursing, drinking Vodka, and shooting inanimate objects.
