How on earth did a cat get in there?

A strange sound coming from the suspension

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.

It’s practically impossible for a cat to fit in there. But did it? You bet.

Driving on the roads of Russia, no off-roader will bat an eyelid at the strange sounds coming from various parts of the car. But meowing coming from a parked drive will astonish even the most seasoned ones. Like this driver, who heard the strange noise when he stopped at a filling station. A quick look under the car was enough to confirm the suspicion that a cat had gotten stuck in the suspension. The driver had done 70 km before that, at times at a speed of 130 km/h, and the poor thing was probably in there all along. How it got there remains a mystery, though. But don’t worry, folks, the kind-hearted off-roaders freed it quickly and gently.

The car itself is interesting, too. If you take a good look at it, you’ll see it’s a right-hand drive and judging by the fender mirror, a Toyota Land Cruiser made for the Japanese domestic market. The cheap right-hand JDMs are incredibly popular in the post-Soviet states; there are in fact so many of them over there that the authorities have seriously considered introducing left-hand traffic in some states.

A French among ‘ze Germans

There were times when you could mention a Peugeot in one sentence with Mercedes and BMW. It wasn’t even sure, if the German or the French would threaten more the throne of the Benz. One thing was sure, however: Mercedes was the benchmark.
