The 1988 Volga GAZ 24-10 Is a Hilariously Bad Soviet Russian Car

The Volga GAZ 24-10 is a Soviet car -- and a poorly built, laughably outdated one. Today I'm reviewing the GAZ 24-10, and I'm going to show you all the quirks and features of a Soviet car that lagged far behind what we had in North America. I'm also going to drive the Volga and show you what it's like on the road.

  • all good except for the medkit. Nowadays, it became popular to have a first aid kit when you're travelling on either a picknick, work, country side or whatever. Keep in mind that Russia is fucking huge and didn't have a hospital or a doctor every 50 miles.

  • My dad worked as a gas inspector in Poland in mid 80's (not gasoline, just gas you use in your cooker for example) His duty was to drive around the gas network stations across the whole city. He normally used a Moskvitch 408 or 412 wagon for inspections. But eventually the whole gearbox in the car broke down. So before he could get a replacement car, they let him to drive a GAZ Volga dor around two days of such inspections, that belonged to the gas works principal. After he got into the Volga the first thing he felt was that he was astonishied how big this car was compared to small Moskvitch or whatever else European cars my father used to drive. The then he said: "It feel like I'm driving a Soviet palace!" XD I'll show you an example what kind of building more or less he had on mind:

  • I though all the Volga's were black... at least they were in the 80's in Poland. And we were a bit scared of them because in people's minds it was that Volga is a secret police company car and the two men inside are agents, cause there always been two of them. If that's true or not, I don't know... possibly not cause the intelligence agents would be to easy to spot. It was probably car for high party members or company managers. Private use was very rare.

  • For what they had at that time, it was a good car. Easy to fix, low maintenance with out fancy figures compared to the West. To utilize what you had and make a reliable car is not a easy task. It might looks awkward or stupid, but you sometimes have to put things in context to be fair. It was my father's dream car, to own this car was not a easy task in the Soviet era. I know it might sound ridiculous, but people did value and took a pride of this car. I just hope that this host would make less fun of this car. There was a reason why Soviet made cars like this. Not bc they were so outdated or stupid.

  • Obviously the author has no idea of such words as "respect" for instance. By all means Volga is not the best car in the world, but it is certainly not the worst, Quite many advantages compare to other cars. Anyhow 1988 Ford Taurus is almost impossible to see on the road now, plenty of 1988 Volgas are still there, do the math.

You will need "Valerian tincture" from the bottle (at 13:37), if you find out how many years a soviet worker had to work at some factory for buy such car.

  • Cool video. But when you say it wasn't designed for hot weather, well... try living in or near Moscow in summer and you'll probably feel exactly the same as in south California, but without any chance of feeling a fresh ocean breeze. It's continental climate at its best, with very cold winters and very hot summers. So, this car would've turned into a sauna in some parts of Russia too, though only for a couple of months.

  • No seatbelts for backseats was actually quite common for most if not every Eastern European car from the 1980s and 1990s, not just in Soviet Russia. Even today, in some Eastern European countries you are not obligated to have seatbelts for backseats or to buckle if you are sitting behind.

Any car from the '80's is entertaining to some extent, but I don't think this car deserves that much derision. 4. Downvoted.

  • "Bad car" i.e. most efficient in terms of money per value to get you from point A to B while being reliable. That idea is probably one of the key factors why USSR growth rates were faster than in capitalist countries . In the eyes of the "bad Soviets" it was better to have stronger army, improved infrastructure, more huge projects like "Buran", than to have more expensive car for citizens.

In the dark. Edit: Sorry for being so negative. I really love that you're reviewing old and weird cars.
