Automotive Abominations in Kiev, Ukraine



While I myself am Canadian, my father’s family originates from the Ukraine. Ok, it was about 100 years ago that they came to Alberta to farm these fertile lands, but the Ukraine is still their second home. According to English Russia, a broken-English website chronicling all things strange and wonderful in the former Soviet Union, the Ukraine my forefathers left is starkly different from the one today.

In terms of cars down on the Kiev street, there’s no shortage of expensive, flashy rides. It’s just the way in the former USSR, I suppose, but do they really have to modify them so… so… tastelessly?

The Audi R8 has no right to look that objectionable. Neither to the rest of the cars below.
