The Lada Niva is not bad at all!! My family had one the same time we had a Land Rover Defender 90. It can do almost as much off road than the Defender but much cheaper.
I also had a PolskiFiat 650 THE worst car ever. Even worst than the Trabant. It had a 2 cylinder 650cc engine 24 Bhp drum brakes at all corner, rear engine by the way. Could do 50mph that's it.
