Vasily Lyakh owns an original 1979 Zhiguli. It was his first and most interesting car. After buying it and immediately turning it into a low rider in 2011, he joined the Moscow-based car club Only Dropped. The club was organized on the principle that, if European low rider fans can drop a VW Beetle, the same thing could be done with Zhigulis in Russia. Ever since then, the movement has grown in Moscow and other Russian cities. Members of numerous car clubs, including Lowdaily, can boast both foreign and domestic low riders.
