Monthly Acquisitions: April 2014

Once again I have exceeded my 100 lari nominative budget. Earlier in the month, I thought I might end the month with as many vehicles as there are days in the month. I slowed down in the last ten days, but still the monthly total reached 22 vehicles and an expenditure of 137.35 lari ($77.65).

    • I like it, too. It is the first Soviet Made vehicle, I have got with a box… My dad had a Moskvitch 427 back in the seventies. During the brief time they were imported to the UK.
