Soviet Volga 1962 GAZ-22 Low Rider Prototype Mod

Tuesday, 1 August 2017

Here’s an un-modified 1962 Volga GAZ-22. I don’t think it had a cast-iron carburetor, but who knows?

From Wiki:

“Only those shipped abroad for export were sold to private customers. All domestic station wagons/estates, with rare exceptions, were never available for private ownership. The Soviet rationale was that allowing such a car to citizens would also make it too available and popular with dealers in the grey market economy [which] was allowed but limited by the state.”

“STEP, STEP, STEP…”

1971 Soviet Stepwalker, apparently from a hobby magazine.

Saturday Matinee – Маричка, Lucero, Dave Alvin & The Guilty Ones

Saturday, 9 February 2013

“Blaxploitation style soviet funk! Фрагмент из музыкального фильма Софии Ротару – Песня всегда с нами 1975 года.”
Hit teh goggle translate. [via]

Lucero‘s “I Want Your Love.” Ben Nichols & Company rocks at the Memphis  Sun Studios in 2012. Jump to 1:10 for the good stuff. There’s a lot of influences in that song, something for everybody, and it reminded me of The Blasters.

Dave Alvin & The Guilty Ones “Harlan County Line” is pure badass grinding blues, and it’s just what’s needed to wrap up this episode of The Saturday Matinee.

Have a great weekend, folks and don’t sweat the weather. We’re working on it.
