What do you call a Yugo with brakes?


When I was in high school a good friend had a Yugo.  Actually the friend was Chad from the rakija post, the wiener who can’t hold his booze.  We would drive around the corn fields, “road trippin”, as one does in the mid-west, shoulder to shoulder in this cracker box of a contraption.  We beat the hell out of it, and I think it has been in an auto grave yard since 1995.

Jason Vuic has written a book about everyone’s favorite communist era car, The Yugo: The rise and fall of the worst car in history.   With gems like this in it, “Why does a Yugo have rear a window defroster? To keep your hands warm as you push it.”  It sounds quite amusing.
