Volga GAZ-31105

Here is a Volga GAZ-31105.


The Volga GAZ-31105 was the last model of the Volga mid-size sedan and was a re-styled and upgraded version of the preceding model Volga GAZ-3110.


This one is also a post-2007 version which differs from the pre-2007 in the grille shape, also has an upgraded interior on which Germany's Hоеrmann Rawema и EDAG also worked, and other things.



For comparison here are some wikipedia Volga GAZ-31105 pre-2007 pictures.

But again post-2007 versions looked like in my pictures above and below.


There was also an extended wheel-base 31105.


 Hоеrmann Rawema и EDAG contributed to the post-2007 interior.

ZiL-130 Dump Truck

Here is a ZiL-130 dump truck sighted last week.


In Army Green, a frequent paint scheme but not as frequent as the characteristic blue and white (even rarer is salad green and white).


This a post-1979 ZiL-130.


It definitely has a post-1979 fascia.




The post-1979 ZiL-130 differences are: turn signals above headlights (pre-1979 ZiL: below), also two rows of short horizontal vents on the radiator grille (pre-1979 ZiL: one). 

Also the letters ЗиЛ (ZiL) are not accented in white as in the pre-1978 version and some others.


Compare to a pre-1979 Zil-130 (picture: wikipedia):
