Year 1961...Gagarin walks through carpet for a report to the head of party and government, untied shoelace, everyone's nervous...That year money reform took place. Voznesenskiy will later write 'Take Lenin off the money!' Volga's price was 5100 roubles...
Year 1964...In October Leonid Iljich replaced Nikita Sergeevich. Since then Brezhnev never rode Volga...
Year 1965...Ryazanov films 'Beregis avtomobilja' at Mosfilm. Watching that movie we still live through and love Yuri Detochkin, his trophys and waltz, in time with which a beige Volga swung rushing through the highway...
