Welcome to "Volga in America"!
"Волга в Америке", добро пожаловать! 
Brooklyn, New York


IMPORTANT UPDATE: In October, 2012 Hurricane "Sandy" almost destroyed our neighbourhood. We are sad to report that among other losses our beloved black 1962 Volga sustained damage from the flood.......
It was sold in May of 2013 at the insurance auction and  the new buyer   from Indiana already got in touch with us.  He owns several Russian cars, and he will be able to restore the car back to it's former glory. We  plan to help him the best we can in that process. We will be posting the updates on this website.
So the Volga will live on...!

On the brighter note , we are very happy to announce that we acquired another Volga ---an early 1957 GAZ-M21V first series, a.k.a "Zvezda" , or ("the Star"). It was the subject of a 5-year long professional ground-up restoration in Russia and  it arrived to America  on November 16, 2013. The news  are added to our new website www.volga21.com.

Важная информация: в октябре 2012 года ураган "Сэнди" нанес огромный ущерб нашему городу, особенно району, где мы живем. К огромному сожалению, от наводнения пострадала и наша любимая черная Волга  1962  года.... В мае 2013 она была продана со страхового аукциона.  Hовый владелец  из штата Индиана уже связался с нами. Он владеет несколькими русскими машинами, и мы уверены, что он сможет вернуть нашу Волгу в ее прежнее состояние.  Мы планируем оказать  ему в этом посильную помощь, чтобы Волга продолжала жить! Информацию мы будем публиковать на этом веб-сайте.

Но есть и хорошие новости. Мы рады сообщить, что приобрели новую Волгу - ГАЗ М21В начала 1957 года, первая серия "Звезда". Она прошла через все стадии 5-летней профессиональной реставрации в России и  прибыла в Америку  16 ноября 2013 г..  И
нформация  об этом  добавлена на нашей новой веб-странице www.volga21.com
