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

ავტომობილები & ტრანსპორტი

The Volga GAZ 24-10 is a Soviet car -- and a poorly built, laughably outdated one.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.

    13:20 The liquid in bottles from a first-aid kit is intended for sterilization of wounds. Black pills are called "activated charcoal". Intended for help if you got food poisoning. P.S. 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.

They were very weird, had a rear placed V4 that somehow only gave ~30 hp, and the quality was so notoriously bad that the car became a huge meme in Russia, and people are still joking about its gasoline powered heater and overall shittiness.

AND I think you reviewed "Exported version" which was SO MUCH HIGHER QUALITY in compare to that distributed on internal "Market" (except there was no market in USSR). And about Volga's GAZ logo. It's just that deer is a symbol of Nizhny Novgorod (or Gorky as it was called in USSR). The name of the factory itself was GAZ Gorkovsky Automobile Zavod (Gorky Auto Factory, so it would be GAF in eng) and city itself still has entire district called Autozavod (Auto factory) because... there is this factory.

    in the USSR, there was no export of foreign equipment. The Soviet specialists had no experience in the development of civilian equipment, so some of the best models of equipment were purchased,studied, and on this basis, Soviet equipment was produced.I ask you to pay attention - there was no theft of technology by Soviet spies, but there was a legal acquisition and study.this was a normal practice in those days and everyone knew about it. the capitalist countries have constantly done this to each other, but for some reason everyone blames only the USSR. but for some reason, no one talks about the many things that were stolen by the West from the USSR, starting from the gradient lens for the eyes and ending with the technology for the f-35

The V8 version had to have a peice of cast iron in the trunk to keep the rear end stable at speed

Basically, introducing yearly car models and making cars a fashion item is a way to get customers to buy a new car even when they don’t need it. Not being from the US, I personally always found it weird when someone talked about a car model being from a specific year. Not sure about real car enthusiasts here, but most people just say they are driving a Ford Focus, e.g.

    You can also check out GAZ 3102, if truly want to see an 80's Soviet car, or check out GAZ Chayka (It's what Soviet officials drove). GAZ 24-10, is just the tenth variant of GAZ 24 from the 60's. It wasn't made in 80's, it was *still produced* all the way to the 80's, and only stopped in 1985 (GAZ 24) and 1992 (GAZ 24-10).

    Yes, but you forget one thing - Soviet cars were like AK-47. All the fancy and comfy cars went offline after even a small issue, those things kept running even when a tank ran over them. They were extremely simple but that was also their strength, they were easy and cheap to fix, then ran from gasoline to cooking grease or dishwasher water, they could take a shot from a tank and still move and so on. OK OK, some of these are exaggerations but still, they were like AK-47, worked anywhere and everywhere. They were even built like tanks, no plastic or what else there, all is solid metal sheets. Crash that thing into western car and it'll run through that car like a battering ram, with minor dents and scratches. Nuke lands somewhere near you - all other cars will be dead. This one? It will move. Just throw a fistful of irradiated sand into the tank and it'll go.
