Re: YUGO production ends . . .
I hesitate to admit it, but I had a Yugo in the early 80's. I put over 100,000 miles on it, but not much over. It was just an Italian Fiat, built by the Yugoslavs. But the Fiats had a better engine, Bosch fuel injection, and a 5 speed. They sold Yugos with a smaller engine, a Weber carb(same one in the first Ford Escorts), and a 4 speed.
The guys at work used to say it was easy to maintain. To change the oil, you just take off the oil cap, turn the car upside down and drain it, put it down and add new oil.
The best things in life, are not things.
