Lada Niva clubs & forums around the World



Because of the ability to use Nivas for trips, events, trials, etc - not to mention the need for aftermarket support groups - there is a astonishing number of Niva clubs and forums around the world. In addition to the obvious Russian/Slavonic speaking groups, there are many others (on-line translators at bottom of page).

Is your Niva club or forum missing, or details incorrect? Please contact me.

Lada.co.uk forum - Once the main English speaking Niva forum (with helpful advice and great attitude) but now run by a paranoid person who bans people left right and centre for seemingly no good reason and without warning, so sadly is the forum is now largely useless other than the archives - most users now use the Lada UK Facebook forum instead, but good luck and enjoy if you can successfully register

On-line translators:
Google Language Tools now also seems to cover all necessary languages, PROMT, BabelFish or Translation Guide dot com are available if you don't like Google.

Try this language identifer.

Translator tips:
Niva often translates as "field" or "cornfield" from Russian.
"W-Niva" translated from Russian refers to the Chevolet Niva.
Differential translates as "bridge" from Russian, Locker as "blocker", and Transfer-case as "razdatka".
If you start reading about Hippopotamus' & Crocodiles, a Hippo is Russian slang for the 3-door Niva, and Croc for the 5-door.
Avoid talking about the "driver's side" or "passenger's side" and stick to the "right side" and "left side" to avoid confusion between those of us who drive on different sides of the road (fyi the side of a vehicle is determined from the driver's perspective, not from standing in front of the vehicle looking at it).
