Ya, what are those things on the side of the windshield? It looks like a wire, or hose coming from the bottom of each box.

....Like really old VW bugs had. Look carefully between the front and back window.

Yes. Almost all British and European cars up to the 1950's used a version of these "Trafficators". I have a 1951 Standard Vanguard that has ones similar to the VW in the picture. There were many, many variations as I have found out in trying to source a replacement lens for one of mine. Mine are even self-cancelling. Don't know if the earlier ones were.

Thumbs up Re: What do we have here

These women are even ready for interference or sabotage from the inferior western capitalist nations who envy their Marxist-Leninist permanent revolution agenda.

Photo in here is the first roadster body I've seen in Russia. Wonder if it's a kit from USA assembled or is it locally made like the other cars. Local GAZ-A production started in Dec 1932. AA production started earlier.
