    Probably just a convertible of the one in front?

    The one up front is a ZIL-111 from 1958-1967, the other could be nearly anything.

    The other car is a GAZ-M13 "Chaika", the less luxurious brother of the ZIL, built from 1959 to 1981 while featuring the same Packard Caribbean styling and a 3 speed push-button transmission.

    I am not Russian nor American, but i would drive a Zighuli over any american plastic v8 shitbox they are producing today. These cars may not be best looking, but they are not made for that, they are made to endure in middle of Siberia, a ice desert, they are made to start up in -50 degrees celsius without any problem, and are made to last its owner for decades without major rusting. The comfort is not through the roof, they have mostly just the basic spartan equipment. They might look outdated, but the "outdated" stuff works better than the up to date. I call bullshit on your typical fullsize v8 "work truck", they don't do shit compared to the russian cars. Don't get me to talk about the actual russian trucks.

    They look like crap. They may not be comfortable. But bloody hell they work damn great. I think that summarises most Russian equipment. Function over form.

    Exactly this, i was surprised that OP called the topic "Soviet Shitbox". These cars may not be design stars, but for sure they last for a very long time, good for offroading and mainly they are very durable.

    I called it a shitbox beacuse although it was basically indestructible, it is not a pleasant car to use.

    Know someone who just got a 2014 Ford and oh god why is everything controlled by computers with NO MANUAL OVERRIDE!? It terrifies me to ride in that thing. There aren't even lock pegs for the doors! What am I supposed to do if the electronics get jacked in an accident? Smash the window out for what could have been an unlucky fender bender?

    Pull the handle, door unlocks. Although most cars no longer have the lock peg, pulling the handle usually actuates the unlock mechanism. The electronics controlling the door are also mounted in the door, chances are if you've managed to jack them up on all 4 doors, whether or not you can simply open the door and walk away from the accident will probably be the least of your concerns. The main ECU is also rated for high shock and temperatures, and mounted in such a way as to prevent physical damage to it wherever possible too, not just going to give up the ghost in a fender bender. Manufacturers spend millions into developing the most bullet-proof electrical system they can.

    The throttle by nature of being fuel injected must be electronic, but brakes and steering wheel are both mechanically linked. If you are a real man you drive a manual, in which case once again the clutch and shifter are mechanically linked.


    Although on the subject:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqe6S6m73Zw
    Those hacks were all performed on the cars CAN bus. That car they did show with the dash entirely ripped off, but to get at the CAN bus of a car you don't need to do any permanent alterations to the car. The ODB port is the external connector for the cars CAN. Most ODB adapters themselves can only function with ODB messages, but you can hook up a real CAN controller to that port too for full access. A few manufacturers have cottoned onto this and are now fitting the car with 2 CAN buses. One for the actual car data, the other carrying data only usable by ODB units, only the 2nd is connected to the ODB port.
