wow pretty rare. Coincidence, I was reading on jalopnik, someone was selling a bunch of yugo including a super rare cabrio... the link:

Also, does someone remember the "Yugo next" exposition?

Speaking of things Yugo, if you haven't seen the movie Drowning Mona, you should! Yugos aplenty in that flick. Great performances, too, by Danny DeVito, Bette Midler, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Will Ferrel.

Sorry, but these are kinda cool looking. Sorta like a mini Golf. I'd make one into a "euro tuner"....

I read somewhere that there's less than 1000 of these turds still left on US roads...amazing to find one! I've only ever seen one in my life.

@ anonymous : You are right. Just go to imcdb.com and type "drowning mona" to find a screen capture of some yugo used in that movie.

Also , they used a yugo a couple of weeks ago in an episode of top Gear america :)

Top Gear....I bet the bastards destroyed it.
Anyway, look at that 'lil Serb! Love it.

One of the best things about the Yugo was the fan that kept the rear window defrosted. It kept your hands warm when you pushed it.

I like these things, these look awesome as rally machines. one guy went as far as to make one with Lancia Delta Integrale running gear and box flares and it looks like a shrunken delta. this thing would be bad ass with a mr layout and a turbo V6. what a sleeper that would be.

Awesome .. always liked these, an attractive small hatch. I spotted one in Salem a few times a year or three ago. Hadn't seen one since a family friend 15 years ago (she hauled a dog half the size of the Zastava in it, and traded 'up' for a Metro)

A classic example of rarity not equaling value.

I remember Bruce Willys and Kim Basinger riding in a Yugo. I can´t remember the name of the film. JAVI V8.

Do you know what is a Yugo's rear window defroster for ? So you don't get your hands frozen while pushing the car lol!
