Weekly Photo Challenge: Resilient

This week’s challenge is Resilient

Here in Georgia we see a lot of Soviet cars from the seventies and eighties still in daily use. They maybe a bit rough around the edges but they have lasted longer than a lot of western kit, which was twice the price at the time.

Izh Kombi

 

This Izh Kombi (ИЖ-2125 Комби) has some dents and rust but it is still going, it is resilient. When the Kombi first appeared in 1972, its five door hatchback design was unusual, the style was only preceded by the Renault 16 and Austin Maxi, now 5 door hatchbacks are commonplace.
