    Finland had this treaty of cooperation with the former Soviet Union until the early 1990’s which would account for the substantial number of Russian vehicles being sold there. Price was the primary factor as to why they sold well but it’s also that they’re suited for the Finnish climate & roads, especially in Lapland. When I visited Helsinki & Turku in 2000 I was amazed by the substantial number of Ladas on the roads but there were also a few East
    German Wartburgs in Helsinki alone. Denmark is the only other Nordic country where Ladas & other East European cars are commonplace, Denmark’s high taxation rate on new motor vehicles being a factor.

    Fascinating, I remember as a kid (a long time ago admittedly) we used to buy a lot of Moskviches, Skodas and Ladas in Britain, why?, because they were cheap, we still buy a lot of Skodas, the difference now is Skodas are very good and good value for money, love the historical data articles, thank you.
