This Moskovitch coupe won the 1990 Vostok 500 outright, only to have the owner, one Boris (no last name given) taken out back and shot for aspirational headlights.

This Lada is the winner of the 1991 Vostok 500. In an odd parallel, its owner, Boris, was also taken out back and shot post-race, only this time for aspirational stripes.

Now this Lada is the winner of the '93 Moscow street race, and an apparent sytlistic precursor to the Dodge Magnum. In what appears to be an anti-motorsport agenda on the part of the Russian secret police, its owner Boris was also taken out back and shot post-race, pretext being Westernizing the design of such a great Communist icon.

This stocker is also probably the only example of a Lada with a good angle to it. Credit Boris (Boris's aero designer) with the stylistic nous to slap a fastback on it.

Boris was also killed, this time for not drinking vodka at the victory celebration.

This little number is the winner of the 1992 Stalingrad street race. Sadly, its owner, Boris, is also no more, as he was taken outside and shot for "waking up Stalin".

This Lada was suspected to be the daily transport of the Stasi mole within the Nazcar organization, a fellow named Boris. Sadly, though, this theory was proved wrong after Boris was taken outside and shot for saying that it was too cold.

This Lada represents the final entry in the Nazcar saga. Winner of the entire '05 Nazcar Zprint Coop, its owner Boris was, sadly, also taken outside and shot, only this time for not being Western enough.
