i was on another driving trip tonight when i saw a car that i thought was extict: the yugo.

yes, that's right, a yugo. she was in decent shape too, white paint job with zero rust from what i could tell, and she had the little ass tires that were on them back in the late 80's and early 90's too.

does anyone ever see any rare cars like this anymore, or am i the only one? not that the yugo was a collectors item, but interesting to see one none the less.

'Ya wanna bet on that Collector's Item statement!
In the final year they were imported here, during the last 6 months or so, they unveiled the Yugo Convertible!! By that time many dealers had jumped ship, and the others were worried about selling WHAT THEY HAD, let alone ordering a convertible. A few arrived. I cannot guaranteed it but I once heard the number 100 mentioned. Collector's are WiLd for them!!!!

I see them occasionally. I see more Ladas and Skodas though. My ex-girlfriend had an orange Skoda, which looked a lot better than the other two.

you're right i guess. this was the first one i have seen in years. i don't even see these things in the junk yard, so i will have to agree with you sandy.

I remember seeing an article about a guy who had a Yugo in the bed of his pickup truck. He said that while most people carried spare tires, he carried a spare vehicle. The picture was hilarious.

The best thing about a Yugo was the heated rear window! It kept your hands warm while you were pushing it. :D

The last one I saw was years ago in my home town. It was a Yugo GT....it had a stripe down the side and a rear spoiler. The spoiler, of course, provided down force at those blazing high speeds. :D I never figured out if that was a factory GT, or if those were aftermarket "performance" add-ons.

You dont see em because they probably decompose and blow away.

That would be cool to have. I cannot see how such a simple car could be unreliable.
