Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

Changing a flat tire is a real pain. Even more so for women. Find out how a real man handles the situation.

Changing the tire on a car is not an easy job. Loosening the rusted bolts tightened by powerful air wrenches can be hard even for strong men equipped with the proper tool – on-board tool sets of cars are anything but proper. So a roadside emergency is a real problem for a fragile woman. A few years ago not many women would have dared to try and fix the problem, but the female drivers of today are self-confident enough to give it a go. OK, correction: some women were capable of changing the wheels of a truck even more than half a century ago. Queen Elizabeth did that on a ‘Tilly’ truck, back in 1945. It’s documented.

Now, it takes more than a flat tire to scare off emancipated Russian women driving SUVs. They will use all the tools found in the car, be it jacks, wrenches, repair kits or laptops. But they will be doing it all wrong. Russian men do it better. How? Just watch the video till the end.
