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.

Is this video fake? Or are all Russian men this strong?

The driver of this Lada Samara parked the car too far from the pump. Normally, that’s not a problem, you just start your engine and park the car closer. But not in Russia, it seems. Drivers in Kirov simply lift their cars and shove it closer to the pump.

Well, some say this video is fake. The car might be a front-engined Lada Samara weighing just under a ton, but you don’t just lift and push a vehicle like this. Especially not if you are just an average guy like the one in the video.

A Ferrari's a tractor compared to this

It could rev to 11,000, had a carburettor for each one of its cylinders and its wheels were driven by chain. All this in 1965.
