The car in the picture is a ZAZ-968, also called a ZAZ Zaporozhets or a Zapor. The ZAZ was intended to be the lowest end of the Russian cars, equivalent to the East German Trabant. The first ZAZ, the 965 was made in 1960 in the Ukraine and was probably a Russian copy of a Fiat 600. The 968 shown in the picture was built from 1972 to 1980 and copied the styling from an NSU Prinz. The ears on the side of the car are the air intake for the rear mounted 1.2 liter V4 air cooled engine. The sign over the door is for auto insurance. I don't know anything about the horse.

According to the Wikipedia, the same plant that made the Zaporozhets started to make televisions. The Russians said the TVS are fine but their screens are in the back.
