More importantly, watch out for the narcissistic selfie-stick. A good way to wind up with a healthy sized dent or a broken windshield.

Wonderful! It looks like a good turnout of people.
Thank you for sharing your photos! Especially the one of your Grandfather. You must be quite proud of him.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Michael,

In 1960, 61 and 62 I drove a Volga taxi in Oslo, Norway. Often older people asked for a Volga, when they needed a taxi, as they found them easier to get in and out of. It created a little bit of commotion one day, when in rush hour traffic downtown, a connecting rod broke and made hole in the side of the engine block. Oil squirted out on to the hot exhaust pipe and made a lot of smoke.

Wonderful pics and please thank your grandfather for his service!

My daughter-in-law is from Tyumen, don't suppose that's anywhere near Tula (probably like asking if Albany is anywhere near Denver)?

Wayne, according to Google Maps, they are about 1,350 miles apart. Not quite Albany to Denver, but close.... :-)

Saw her yesterday and asked, turns out she has an aunt in Tula outside Moscow. Tyumen is in south central Siberia, apparently during the war the Soviets relocated much of their medical capability to Tyumen.

Michael,

It was the fold down "leg" in the back of the front seat back, that folds down to make a bed, that gave it away.

I have a number of rifles & pistols made in Tula, many made before or during the Great Patriotic War. It is nice to see a bit of what it looks like there.

Vintage Paul
