The car in the picture is a Russian GAZ M-13, known as a "Chaika." It is basically a rebadged Packard, and was built between 1959-81, virtually unchanged all those years!

These cars were only available to people in government; "regular people" weren't allowed to have them.

Yup, this one was easy. I've seen those cars live here in Finland.

So how many of us thought it was a Zil limousine? I know I thought it was. Then Harry said "Nyet!" Took some hunting, but I finally found the Chaika name.

I can't believe that many people knew, congrats to all of you. I thought it looked like some kind of Canadian Checker.

See, Jon, that's what you get for "Russian" to answer one of Harry's quizzes! The names of these Soviet cars come easily for those of us who read spy novels. Looking at the car, I think Ron has a point about it looking like a "Canadian Checker" - Is "Chaika" Russian for "Checker"?

No, it means "gull."

I did not know what it was but I've noticed Harry's trend of using foreign cars with what seems to be leaning toward Slavic/Russki choices so... since I remembered the Gaz pickup previously in this game I set my google image search to Gaz and let'er rip.

I enjoy this game because I learn about new cars while researching the current game selection.

Because I don't think there are too many American cars that you guys wouldn't know. ;)

I "googled" 1955 Russian packard sedan ......yours was the third row down.

(OK a bit better shape)

looked like a 55 packard to me, but it wasn't, so I read the history and learned.....the rest of the Packard.... :lol: :lol: :rolleyes:
