HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ANYONE!

Guys, any of you has guts to take part THIS MAY in an autoshow deep in the heart of Russian Siberia?
It's conducted in the city of Irkutsk (capital of Eastern Siberia) Link:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irkutsk
Just an hor ride (road is quite nice) - and you get to the world oldest and deepest lake - Baikal:

The history of the show counts for 7 years now. Link (in Russian, sorry, but you should start learning it now, shouldn't you?):

More pictures of the last year event:

We took the gran prix for our JNCs twice: in 2010 (Isuzu 117 coupe Blanc Edition, 1979) and in 2011 (datsun Fairlady 1964):

Now how about daring us THIS year?

We are going to exhibit at least 4 cars:
1) Toyota Celica TA27 (1974)
(pictures coming soon)
2) Toyota Celica RA40 (1981):

3) Mazda 626 Hardtop Coupe (1981):

4) [modified] Toyota Crown MS65 (1973), a.k.a. «Jazzdevil»
http://automarket.su/show/partners/bajk ... u-2012/666

I can negotiate with the show committee for compensating (part of) expenses for the most interesting vehicles delivery.

They also provide accomodation for each participant (quite nice 3* hotel).

So, who's gonna be there?

Could THAT stop you from a FREE (well, almost) adventure?:)

Take Korean Air, they've got the niciest stewardesses - compare to those old witches (sorry, amigo) on some US airlines. Via Seoul you can choose from coming either directly to Irkutsk 2 times a week or to our Vladivostok, where it'll be our pleasure to meet you, teach some Russian words and give you introduction lesson of drinking Russia liquids...

As for the car, you can also ship it to Vladivostok first, we'll arrange further safe transportation to Irkutsk together with our babies.

It's not like visiting a shop on the next street, but adventures ARE like that.
And we can almost guarantee you'll get home afterwards in 1 piece.
Cheers!
