===Promising beginnings===
Lada was founded on July 1976 as [[Torpedo Togliatti]]. Roughly a month later, Torpedo played its first game, a friendly against [[Dizel Penza]]. The game resulted in a 3-3 tie - a promising result for the club. Torpedo began in the [[Vtoraya Liga]] (then known as the '''Klass A Group 2''') in [[1976-77 Vtoraya Liga season|1976-77]]. In this league, then the equivalent of the third and last level of the Soviet hockey scheme, the team achieved a secure mid-table finish in the ''Zapadnaya Zona'' (Western Zone), finishing seventh out of fourteen teams with 25 wins in 52 games. Torpedo quickly improved. Already next season, the team finished third of the Western Zone, just two points shy of [[Kristall Elektrostal]] and the promotion zone. In [[1979]], Torpedo finally crowned its rapid ascension to the top by finishing first of the Western Zone, therefore earning a promotion to the [[Pervaya Liga|Klass A Group 1]]. After shaky beginnings that saw the team fall back in the Group B, Torpedo came back in [[1982]] and enjoyed nearly a decade of Pervaya Liga activities before the fate brought Tolyatti to a higher standard.
