I bought the Volga – in the garage I was stuck for a long time: How problematic is the GAZ-24?

Rust, swollen chrome, carburetor repair, search for spare parts – buying a Volga is not for everyone.

The idea of ​​owning perhaps the most beautiful car in the USSR attracts many drivers. There are two ways to realize this desire: find already restored “Volga” or go to the secondary market to look for a pearl among the rusty ruins.
The second way is more difficult, but more economical. But before you join the ranks of the owners of such a rarity, it is important to know how problematic GAZ-24. Bought “Volga” – in the garage “stick around” for a long time?
Gorky Automobile Plant produced “twenty-fourth” from 1967 to 1992, which means the first “Volga” today is more than 50 years old. How much time will have to spend in the garage after purchase directly depends vehicle condition. Therefore, you should not rush and carefully examine each centimeter of the body.
Rust is the number one enemy for the GAZ-24. But no need to try to find a copy without a single “saffron milk cap”. After buying a car worth spending anti-corrosion treatment of problem areas. It will not be superfluous handle chrome parts special compounds.
Also worth choosing as complete as possible “Volga”, as finding the missing nameplate or interior element will not be easy. But you can not be afraid of unadjusted body gaps: it is not difficult to expose them.
Usually, “Volga” comes across in the market with a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated engine producing 95 horsepower. This unit also received a derated version with a capacity of 85 “horses”.

Volgovskiy motors go 200 000-250 000 km. During overhaul the master replaces the cylinder-piston group, while cylinder block boring not required: inside the aluminum block are cast-iron sleeves. However, instead of repairing, many owners prefer to put a “live” factory-assembled motor.

With carburetors, it happens exactly the opposite, they are often restored, since a lot of low-quality units are offered on the market. True, the masters are ready to take up carb recoveryis getting smaller every year.
With spare parts for GAZ-24 the situation is ambiguous. The car was massive and was produced for a long time, but many parts managed to become a shortage. The owners of such “horses” also face the question of the advisability of installing the original part.
If there is no goal to do authentic instance for exhibitions, but I want to drive a car every day, it’s clear that putting 20-year oil seals is pointless. One more important task after the purchase of “Volga” – the replacement of oils in all units.

The transmission of the GAZ-24 is trouble-free, if you do not allow oil leakage. The brake system is considered capricious, albeit repairable. You need to be ready to completely sort out the brakes after buying a car.

Uneven reaction among Basque unions to the Guide to return to the pit

The Basque Government’s Guide for the return to the pit starting tomorrow of those companies – eminently, industry and construction – considered non-essential, revealed yesterday by DV, generated mixed reactions among the Basque unions, while the employers’ association, Confebask, chose not to speak out. Thus, that sort of ‘road map’ for the restart raised sharp criticism in both ELA and LAB, while CC OO and UGT, without being in any way complacent with the text coordinated by the Ministry of Labor and Justice, showed another very different profile.

Safety for workers is what marks this restart of activity, which, in any case, seems condemned to be very slow, progressive and quite different between sectors and even between companies.



hours in advance is the deadline with which Basque companies must notify the staff of their intention to reopen.

The essence of the Basque Government document, which in no case can prevent the opening of a company ‘a priori’, is that this step is always carried out with a prior agreement with the union.

ELA and LAB regret that the Executive “condemns” thousands of workers to resume activity despite the riskUGT believes that the guide is “a working base”, while CC OO calls for the holding of a general council in Osalan

Yesterday, LAB was already telegraphing his message when calling a press conference for today in which its leader, Garbiñe Aranburu, will analyze a guide designed, the plant explained, “to guarantee the interests of big capital.” A document, added the union, “whose main objective is not to take care of the health of the workers.”

ELA, for its part, directly accused the Basque Government of “condemning” thousands of workers to resume their occupations despite being “in danger” with it. The plant stressed yesterday, through a statement, that the Executive of Vitoria has issued a guide “without agreement with the unions” “in which there is no commitment to stop activity in the event of serious breaches”, and that “it has not put means to investigate and sanction them. The plant also criticized the lack of means of inspection to certify and guarantee an orderly and in good condition return.

For its part, the CC OO of the Basque Country stressed that the best way to face the “forced return to work” is the absolute guarantee of health, with which he warned that he will be “vigilant” regarding compliance with health conditions and worker safety. Regarding the guide, the union regretted that it had been built not from a tripartite body but by requesting contributions to the unions based on a text “son” of the council. That is why he demanded the prompt convocation of the Osalan general council.

The UGT general secretary in the Basque Country, Raúl Arzal, for his part, explained to this newspaper that the document of the Basque Government is “a working base” and that “the key will be the agreement in each company, in each center of job”. “The industries do not seek, in general, openings with a lot of activity but, rather, at idle, so that when it is possible to return normally and with all capacities,” he pointed out. “It is preferable that this is always done with agreement, and with the 48-hour advance notice that marks a guide, as is already happening in some companies, rather than later closings and shutdowns like those we have seen in some firms”, added.
