Onb it reports the edition “Today”. The national average criminals stealing 14-15 cars per day. Interestingly, the unconditional leader among the “expropriated” of cars over the last several years belongs to the Soviet Vases – 2-3 cars per day.

“The analysis shows that in some places the perpetration of an illegal taking vehicles most are spontaneous Parking lots and streets of cities with developed infrastructure. Highest number of car thefts happening in the capital and regional centers,” — said the first Deputy chief of the criminal investigation Department of national police Colonel Sergei Rudchenko.

Why steal

The main reason for the popularity of VAZ among thieves cops called the demand for spare parts for these cars. In the past they came to Ukraine from Russia, but now because of the decline in trade between countries with supply problems arose. In addition, many models of vazs are already out of production and finding parts is a problem.

As for the cars, especially prestige brands, they steal, usually to order. Practice shows that after hijacking these cars leave for a few days somewhere in a secluded place – to identify cars equipped with satellite tracking system and will it look hard. And only then is distilled to a customer or dismantled for parts.

In the national police claim that during the seven months of the current year revealed 39% of the total number of such crimes, the problem of theft is now one of the most important. In the near future in Kiev it is planned to hold large-scale exercises to combat theft of vehicles, to improve the system of disclosure of this type of crime.

The rescue of drowning – the handiwork of drowning

In recent years the residents of the largest Ukrainian regional centers created in social networks for several online communities, where, in the case of theft, the owners urgently publish operational information: pictures of their cars and contacts with requests to report the location of the vehicle, if someone accidentally will notice. If you find a car failed the administrators of these communities publish reports.

Happen and curiosities

Last winter in the Ternopil Velyki Dederkaly village local resident, being drunk, stole from the garage of the municipal enterprise tractor to do a fellow a good deed — to clear snow from rural roads. The villagers did not appreciate his efforts and said to the police. In the end, the well-wishers he received a year of probation. And in the village Tsebrykove Odessa region last summer, four rebels after a skirmish with the cops in retaliation stole their car.

“Twenty fourth” Volga in the Soviet Union was a litmus test of the status of the owner. A true symbol of the Brezhnev era of stagnation! And here is the GAZ-24 marks the fiftieth anniversary of mileage to their historical homeland.Alexander Vinogradov “Behind the wheel”

— I was picked up by my buddy self-Volga…

— Well, Yes? Where did he get so much money?

A quote from the cult classic, “Office romance” reflects the role of “twenty fourth” Volga in the Soviet Union. It was a litmus test of the status of the owner. A true symbol of the Brezhnev era of stagnation.

The production of new Volga (it is ten years after the debut of inertia called new) small lots began in 1968. The machine immediately became synonymous with elegance, prosperity and significance. Who would have imagined that this car will take a lot of upgrades and will survive to the next Millennium, becoming the latest in mass passenger car in the history of the Gorky automobile plant?

Nowadays dvadtsativosmi again gained cult status, becoming the object of passion among collectors. We decided to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary by going on a historic homeland of GAZ‑24 in Nizhny Novgorod. Our tandem consists of two cars — the Volga, 1972 (the so-called first series) and later in 1978 (second series).

Age takes its toll. Volga in 1972 made to sweat before leaving. Drip clutch master cylinder and water pump was clearly not done its job — the motor overheated. In the end, was busy until midnight and most of the time was spent on travel for details. Still, the cost of total lack of sleep we prepared the car for the appointed hour.

The key to start

Just before leaving for the Gor… sorry, in Nizhny Novgorod, I realized that the 24th Volga was the only passenger model of the plant, driving of which I do not ever ride (rare GAZ‑3105 does not count). Sit in the Volga, the older. Every Soviet machine, as you probably remember, was distinguished by its unique sounds and smells. Already the driver’s door makes clear the difference in class between her and the people’s Lada, not to mention the Muscovite. How easily it opens and closes! Literally a light touch of the fingers. And under the solid metal accompaniment. And the car for 46 years!

Sit on a soft feather-bed of the driver’s seat and Wake up the engine 24D. The choke is not required after starting the engine immediately goes to idle smooth, filling the cabin barely perceptible tremor and the characteristic, familiar childhood song.

And that’s before the hood is dark grey “anthracite” spreading the M7 highway, ironically also called “Volga”. Red stripe ribbon speedometer crawled to cruising at 90-100 km/h on the Volga and I am very comfortable. Of course, noisy, but by the standards of forty years ago — peace and quiet. The engine chatters quietly at moderate speed, the tyre noise is almost there. Solo aerodynamics, but it does not pay attention. Windows and vents wide open, the cabin is walking freely, the wind, and from the regular speakers on the front sounds Vysotsky and the soul to sing along.

In turns a particularly keen understanding of what manageability is not about the Volga. The impression is that it is not necessary — everything is subordinated to comfort, including baykovoye soft suspension. Coupled with the same seats that makes childish to enjoy every transverse wave, which sway like a boat.

The gear ratio of the steering gearbox is huge, and even the unchanged emptiness in the “zero”, so minor deviations thin bagels will not affect the position of the wheels. And little effort. In place the wheel can turn even a fragile girl, what success proves Anastasia — the owner of this car.

For contrast drove a few tens of kilometers on the car in 1978. The clutch works just perfect — the pedal can be cast in mid-stroke. Volga confident and incredibly gently moves off. Otherwise differences a little, the main — bus. On the older car are tires with a section width of 205 mm, and this native factory 195‑e bus. They make pretty nervous when getting into a longitudinal groove or in the area with the removed asphalt. Perhaps it was the only spoon of tar. And of course, it is a pity that the machines of the second series, the charismatic “lentochnykh” was replaced by a conventional dial speedometer.

The first series of machines was missing the turn signals on the front fenders, and the bumpers were not “fangs”. In 1978 appeared the fog light.The first series of machines was missing the turn signals on the front fenders, and the bumpers were not “fangs”. In 1978 appeared the fog light.

A hindrance to the right

Plenty of wiggling the steering wheel, take the passenger seat. Because the Volga was not private, but mainly the service. But I sat not behind, as many might think, although the place was full. Insanely soft suspension coupled with the same “air” sofa can unbalance persistent vestibular apparatus: even on the smoothest roads — endless pitching. For those who have relied service 24‑I often went in front. So the rest of the way to the Bottom I conducted the “Director’s” right front seat, catching admiring glances and camera smartphones.

From a technical point of view the 24th Volga — evolution of the previous one, 21‑th model. Located longitudinally of the engine capacity of 2.45 liters mated with 4-speed manual transmission. Brake mechanisms of all wheels — drum. Front suspension — pivot, double-wishbone, rear — dependent spring.From a technical point of view the 24th Volga — evolution of the previous one, 21‑th model. Located longitudinally of the engine capacity of 2.45 liters mated with 4-speed manual transmission. Brake mechanisms of all wheels — drum. Front suspension — pivot, double-wishbone, rear — dependent spring.

Concerns that the car can break down on the road, fortunately, were in vain — both the Volga without problems have reached the goal, surprising the fuel consumption around 10 l/100 km And in just two days we wound a thousand miles without a single technical problem.

Here we have cherished the granite gate of the Gorky automobile plant. Those where more than forty years ago, our “twenty fourth” went to its customers. For a while, until they served different masters in different towns, much water has flowed. Did not many people who had a hand in their creation. Did not the country in which they were born. Did not and most of the brand Volga — today in Nizhni Novgorod of cars manufactured only Skoda and Volkswagen.

It is a little sad. It is in such moments, you realize how we lack the Volga. The very large and prestigious, with a deer on the facade. Who knows, she may even come back to us?

The editorial “Behind the wheel” expresses gratitude to Anastasia Averina and Alexey Petrushina for the car.
