During the Cold War, militaristic hardliners always harbored the hope that one day they'd see American army vehicles rolling through Moscow. Well, that day has long since arrived, though commerce won the day, not military force. What they didn't account for in their contingency plans was what would happen to their vehicles when they crossed through the slowly-decaying nuclear fallout around Chernobyl: this HUMMER's grown extra wheels!

The image above and the gallery below were snapped in the Russian capital by someone who evidently managed to contain his disgust just long enough to hold down the shutter, like some Manhattan-project researcher. Only in Moscow, of course, with their strange affection for further mutating already monstrous SUVs.
