Default Black Lightning: The Russian Flying Car



Disclaimer: I don't speak or read a lick of Russian, but watching this trailer, I got the jest of what they were going for. (I didn't notice the translations at the bottom the first time watching it.) The idea seems a bit like the Rocketeer, but with...

Great, I still have one of those old Volga,s in the shed. Tough as nails car. It,s an old Russian tradition to drive your Volga of a building or of a cliff. Makes the panels fit better than when the car came out of the factory.

That's the way it goes. The low buck guys start a trend and then the big money guys come in and screw it all up! Flying car = New Rat Rod

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that I dig old USSR iron. I have no personal expirence with them, but I have seen a few pics of some shoebox styled rides from our russian brothers that I thought had a lot of potential.

Reminds me of the Spiderman storyline....replace the radioactive spider and superhero suit for a rocket car. I'd actually like to see it.

Wow! The Russians are making some pretty slick movies. First the Nightwatch series and this killer gem. I'm hooked and need to find out more. From the trailer it looks like it's being released through Universal Studios which is no small feat. And those Russian hotties, Yes Sir!! Still the Volga and Moskvich are all real turds. Although turds have been known to polish up pretty nice.

I really like the old iron from Russia. I would love to have one to do into a kool kustom hot rod ! It kinda reminds me of a cross between the Bat mobile with Superman driving it ! I would like to see the whole thing even with the damn sub titles !
Whatever you think of it , that would make a kool flick for the US film makers to screw with ! What the hell , all they would do is screw it up anyway !

The movie might be interesting in a B-grade, kitsch kind of way, but lusting after Volga (vulgar) BMW hybrids? That is sick, wrong and OT!

Wow. What a transformation! Kudos to the guys who did the work on that little gem. They really turned a mundane piece of iron into a beauty.
