Иосиф Пригожин вспомнил, как купил Виктору Цою то самое роковое авто“Yuri Shmilevich I was given a package of money sent for a purchase. Then, in 90-e years it worked for cash, no banks. And we, of course, for the cash went to the “Moskvich” to buy. Remember what I have in the bag were 33 000 rubles, and the car cost 32 500 rubles. Aizenshpis said, “I agreed, give the package and everything.” I gave up not counting. And it turned out that on 500 roubles more gave. Don’t know, took them then Aizenshpis or not,” – says Prigogine.

The producer told reporters that Aizenshpis long time looking for this rare model. After buying a car immediately to go on it failed – there was no gasoline. Joseph and Victor stopped the truck driver who helped them through a hose to fill the tank. On the first day, Choi was not able to ride the new machine: it was waiting for the departure on tour, so put it under a tarp in Belyaevo, where the musician lived at the time. According to Prigogine, the experience of driving the rocker was small, so he was afraid to go fast.

“On the day of purchase I drove the car. Victor sat beside me and said, “Joey, you’re on the road behave, because bad may end,” shared the producer.

However, according to Prigogine, these words have nothing to do with the fact that the actor could anticipate death. According to Joseph, even after 27 years since the death of the rocker, his songs live in the hearts of the people.

“The most important thing I remember about Victor is that he was very good-natured, not pretentious, very attentive to those with whom communicated. He had no snobbery. Although it is still the only modern Russian artist, who gathered in less than a day 70 thousand spectators! In the morning came the tickets, and in the evening were all sold out. I had no idea and most like not met,” – said Prigogine in an interview with “Komsomolskaya Pravda”.

Recall that the accident with participation of the car of Viktor Tsoi occurred on the 35th kilometer of the highway “Sloka — Talsi” at Tukums in Latvia 15 August 1990. The musician lost control and collided with the bus “Ikarus-280”. Death was instantaneous.
