Yugoslavia was socialist country,but was not part of soviet block! Learn you history.
Ed Ashby Nov 15, 2012
This was the first car fitted with stop-start technology
Aaron Crisp Nov 14, 2012
Did you guys know the Yugo actually had one of the first options just recently available on cars? Push to start.
Matthew Mckernan Nov 14, 2012
Yugo drivers always go to heaven because they've already been in hell.
Matt Sutton Nov 14, 2012
I knew carlton would have round two of yugo jokes.
John Hyland Nov 14, 2012
Incoming Yugo jokes
John Serely Nov 14, 2012
Haha carltonnn
Carlton Salmon Nov 14, 2012
Despite their small size, Yugos are actually designed for five people; one person sits in the driver's seat, and the other four would get out and push.
Adam Thomson Dec 12, 2012
I see a Zastava
Zach Gathercole Nov 16, 2012
@james you just dont get it man
Zach Gathercole Nov 16, 2012
I too see a bentley
Jeyhoon Jahanroshan Nov 14, 2012
my dream car.
James McMahon Nov 14, 2012
I see a Porsche. Im not sure what you guys are talking about.
Jason Villwock Nov 14, 2012
I also see a Bentley.
Colby Church Nov 14, 2012
Lol @ Carlton
Matt Sutton Nov 14, 2012
My dad had one. It was better used as an oversized golf cart. Playing on dirt and snow.
Jake Judges Nov 14, 2012
Looks like a Bentley
Donte Perino Nov 14, 2012
I actually want one to see how bad it really is.
Carlton Salmon Nov 14, 2012
How do you more than double the value of a Yugo? Fill it with petrol.
Thomas William Tuer-sipos Nov 14, 2012
Haha ahh @lucas beat me to that one!!
Jeyhoon Jahanroshan Nov 14, 2012
I bet a fat man can fit in this.
Lucas Hill Nov 14, 2012
@jake , it makes the same aristocratic wump
Luis Daniel Angilello Nov 14, 2012
Yugo GT-R! 0-60 in.... Never!
Greg Lewis Nov 14, 2012
Veyron killer
Drew Humphrey Nov 14, 2012
I see some Bentley.
Tim Preisinger Nov 14, 2012
This thing will be bad ass on the drag strip!
Aaron Crisp Nov 14, 2012
Wow are you guys serious? Look at the pinstripes, easily 75 HP each. This thing eats ZL1's and GT500's for lunch.
Daniel Levy Nov 14, 2012
Check out those gauges =150 hp
Colby Church Nov 14, 2012
@Matt, true, but those red center caps add a lot of horsepower, so you have to take that into consideration. Once you line them up, I say it's a pretty even race. :)
Matt Sutton Nov 14, 2012
I dunno erich. It doesnt have enough stickers to keep up w the camaro.
Jake Judges Nov 14, 2012
"This is the same as the Bentley in a number of very important ways"
Carlton Salmon Nov 14, 2012
What makes a Yugo go faster? A tow truck.

Also, one other thing to mention; Bricklin was the first to import Subarus into North America. So not everything he did was bad.
David Parenti Nov 14, 2012
It was also very heavy and slow. "Chop Cut Rebuild" built a really nice looking SV-1
Dale Schroeder Nov 14, 2012
The SV-1 actually had a number of safety features that were ahead of their time, but it was built like a cheap kit car and too expensive. Not so much a failure as it was just too ambitious a project for the time, really.
Donte Perino Nov 14, 2012
I like the way the Bricklin SV-1 looks.

Jommel Marcella Nov 14, 2012
A car with a tree roof. Doesn't work.
Shane Carroll Nov 14, 2012
What I think is happening here is the Yugo has succeeded in losing a race against a tree
Ben Howell Nov 14, 2012
The Yugo 'Eco' edition.
Dale McIntyre Nov 14, 2012
Look at that bastard, effortlessly hauling a tree
Greg Lewis Nov 14, 2012
Chia pet is born!

António Villas-Boas Nov 15, 2012
All the numbers on the bodywork actually suggest they're rolling dice
Jeyhoon Jahanroshan Nov 14, 2012
what a bau5. the Yugo obviously demonstrates the way drifting should be
Mike Truman Nov 14, 2012
I'm thinking about signing up for that driving school advertised on the windshield
Paul Trahan Nov 14, 2012
Trust me, the driver is doing his best not to be seen.
Jommel Marcella Nov 14, 2012
I don't see a driver.
Greg Lewis Nov 14, 2012
The car wasn't doing 10mph at the time, it was coming of the assembly line like that.
Braxton Omgbased Booker Nov 14, 2012
@jhon !!! 😂😭😂😭
Colby Church Nov 14, 2012
This is a scene from the upcoming Fast and Furious 6 movie. Haha
Aaron Gorrell Nov 14, 2012
The worst part? The car was doing 10 mph when this happened.
Trey Villarreal Nov 14, 2012
Typical drifting in a Yugo.
John Hyland Nov 14, 2012
Yugo, go home, you are drunk
Chris Benson Nov 14, 2012
I laughed @Carlton.
Carlton Salmon Nov 14, 2012
OMG! WTF!

Haha. My quad has 60HP.
Kasey Cook Nov 14, 2012
55hp? Wow. When you think about 55 horses all together that seems like a lot. I bet it feels more like 55 goat power.
Sasa Jungic Nov 14, 2012
I'm not sure it will work. It is as stiff as salat. :)

Someone drop an LS7 in one of these bad boys and lets go racing! :D

Already taken Phil sorry. good one isnt it though
Phil Johnson Nov 14, 2012
Wanna know how you can double the value of your Yugo? Fill the gas tank.
Stephen Ishard Nov 14, 2012
Another example of price over quality
Greg Lewis Nov 14, 2012
Mmmm valves...
Colby Church Nov 14, 2012
Ha, carpet listed as a feature... that's hilarious and sad at the same time. And if you're going to sell an ugly, slow, piece of shit like this, you should at least give it a reliable engine, considering the people who bought these weren't wealthy.
Matt Sutton Nov 14, 2012
Carlton!! Your joke became so popular carbuzz put it in this article. In all fairness, it was funny as hell.
Adam Huggins Nov 14, 2012
How about a Dacia duster?
Zach Gathercole Nov 16, 2012
Actually the interior isnt as bad as i thought it would be its alright except for the doors
Mark Donnelly Nov 14, 2012
mu captain obvious sense is kicking in... Carlton really hates this car.
Carlton Salmon Nov 14, 2012
@ Trey. And about as appealing...
Trey Villarreal Nov 14, 2012
Hmm reminds me of a coffin.
Kasey Cook Nov 14, 2012
Can you imagine being a car salesman on a Yugo lot? Sales pitch: do you have 4 grand and need an A to B car? Is that truly all you care about? Good buy this Yugo. We can't guarantee the A to B thing tho.
Stephen Ishard Nov 14, 2012
Now that is quality
Tom Ippolito Nov 14, 2012
The door panels don't even match haha
Tim Preisinger Nov 14, 2012
Yes Logan... Yes you are lol
Logan LeMonnier Nov 14, 2012

Colby Church Nov 14, 2012

Jeyhoon Jahanroshan Nov 15, 2012
I see a V10 engine here.
Taylor J. Blake Nov 15, 2012
Should be called "yu no go"
Stephen Ishard Nov 14, 2012
Is the tire even held down or am I missing something ? It looks like its just sitting there.
John Koci Nov 14, 2012
Powerrrrr!!!!!
Tim Preisinger Nov 14, 2012
Motor isn't strong enough to generate any heat
Colby Church Nov 14, 2012
Lol, just the fact that it's in the engine bay is a fail. Couldn't heat play a factor on that tire?
Carlton Salmon Nov 14, 2012
Putting air in the tyre costs more than the tyre itself.
Trey Villarreal Nov 14, 2012
That spare is the most reliable thing under the hood.

Why do Yugo owners never carry a map? It'll never get far enough to get lost!
Chris Benson Nov 14, 2012

Its funny because the worst car of the millenium would be the exact same car as the worst car of the 20th century
Stephen Ishard Nov 14, 2012
And the roof better be strong enough my Dino dog can't stick it's head through
Colby Church Nov 14, 2012
If I'm gonna pay 4,200 pebbles for a car, it better have a windshield.... damn it.
Colby Church Nov 14, 2012
I wonder which car won the worst car award last Millinium? I'm betting it's the Flintstone car... Just wasn't powerful enough, and it was awful heavy. Not to mention it doesn't even come with a windshield! What's up with that?
Dale Schroeder Nov 14, 2012
And production only stopped because the factory got bombed shortly before Milosevich was deposed. If that hadn't happened these might still be in production.
Adam Thomson Dec 27, 2012
What do you say when have beaten a Yugo to Death? There Yu go!
Carlton Salmon Nov 14, 2012
What is found on the last two pages of every Yugo owner's manual? The bus schedule.
Reid Huff Nov 14, 2012
Considering the conoe is probably worth more. I think that the canoe came with the car.
Carlton Salmon Nov 14, 2012
I think the canoe is an optional extra for when the radiator lets go. Or if you live near water and the brakes fail.
Carlton Salmon Nov 14, 2012
What did the parts dealer say when the customer said, "I'll take a set of wiper blades for my Yugo?" "Sounds like a fair trade to me."

What do you call a Yugo with twin exhausts? A wheelbarrow.
Kasey Cook Nov 14, 2012
I am going to guess that flag dented the car. You know when the car hit 17mph that flag started flapping. Whamo!! Dented Yugo
John Koci Nov 14, 2012
I agree Lou, I wasn't sure of the track my first thought was a Lemons race too
Lou Guerrero Nov 14, 2012
Looks like a LeMons race at willow springs.
Carlton Salmon Nov 14, 2012
What do you call a Yugo with a flat tyre? A write-off.
Carlton Salmon Nov 14, 2012
A thief caused £20.95 damage to a Yugo. He broke in and stole the Krooklock off the steering wheel.
Riki Kacic Nov 14, 2012

Jeyhoon Jahanroshan Nov 14, 2012
I'll take it! sold!

Craig Murphy Nov 14, 2012
I so remember the convertible version. an idiot in high school got one when we graduated in 90. put about 5k worth of stereo and accessories on it. We thought the bass alone would have blown it up. still tell stories of it with old friends.
Carlton Salmon Nov 14, 2012
Or a Talbot Samba...
Neil Carmichael Nov 14, 2012
That would be the roof from a VW Cabrio
Carlton Salmon Nov 14, 2012
A convertible Yugo? Never seen or heard of one before.
