Russian power.

These cars were sold in Finland under the name Moskvitsh, yellow car and Jalta, a red car. They were still in the 70's rather popular because of their low price. With a simple structure, it was easy to keep roadworthy.

I am not familiar with these models. Lovely photo and light

@Ruthiebear: These cars were produced in the Soviet Union at the time before. In fact, I owned a Lada from the Soviet Union kind of car. I believe that they are not very often seen in Your own country.

I've heard these Russian made cars aren't very good. These seem to be doing fine though.

@Steve Rice: Their technology was outdated and the quality was very uneven. Moskvits, the yellow was warm in the winter, but the air-cooled Jalta was not as good in that respect. Moskvitsh was, however, a very common car in Finland.
