The first time I saw the car Moskvich 2142 in August 1995 at the Moscow International Motor Show on Krasnaya Presnya, being a child of five. Because of the small age of the exhibition I remember quite vague, but some parts were deposited in the memory. AZLK plant was present at her with a very wide exposure and positioning, as I remember, in the main hall on the -1 floor, at the far right corner, next to the Land Rover stand.
On those rare photographs that are laid out in a network frame includes six cars Moskvich, but it seems to me that there were at least a dozen. It was precisely at least another couple of pickups 2335. I confess, then a dark gray sedan in 2142 failed to make me some very strong impression, perhaps because of the color, because children tend to pay more attention to the bright colors of the machine. However, the fact remains, I have acquired a 42 almost exactly 20 years after he first saw a similar live. The ticket with the exhibition and I carefully preserved its keep.
