During the tough 90s, someone stole the tires off this blue Lada. The owner got angry and in order to avoid any potential damage to his priceless vehicle, he lifted it up onto his balcony on the 4th floor.
The car remained there, until recently. The owner was not there any more, presumably he passed away years ago. Apparently, there is a new apartment owner, so the car was removed last week.
The story of this landmark Lada has ended, just like the dark times of 90’s.
