  2. It wouldn't surprise me if the Skoda had been declared a winner. Estelles often were the journalist's choice of the very low price new cars of the mid to late 1980s. The price was low, reasonable mpg, light controls and pleasant to drive. They were reasonably spacious inside, the boot at the front might have lost marks. What car used to pick the Estelle as the under £3000 choice. The Yugos were often a bit dearer, their more modern Fiat lineage didn't always get the class win.
  3. I had an Autocar or Motor or Autocar and Motor which had a Yugo 65 road test in. 65 GLX I think, it had the body kit. That magazine is in the fantastic Triggers retro Road Tests. I still remember a brilliant line from the article. "The speedometer showed an ego delighting 115 mph at a true 90mph" Or very similar words. Photos showed the inside rear wheel lifting when cornering so it had a thorough testing. Think it came out OK in the test. After all a Yugo was a new car from £3000 in 1985.
  4. Lovely. I am a bit concerned the seller doesn't think it was a Sigma, Colt or Mitsubishi. Sapporo my arse.

    Once seen, never forgotten.
  6. Good research. 1980 UK average annual wage was £6000 (Telegraph), those were pricy diesels.
  7. My 1998 Toyota Avensis 1.8 reached "Bronze Award" this afternoon.
  8. Gloucester services on the m5 sets itself apart from the regular services. Some crazy prices a la farmer's market but the sausage rolls and pies I think are excellent and not too expensive.
  9. I have enjoyed these old guides. Hillman imp thanks for reminding me. Some more adverts from the 1992 edition. Motor related. As with the 1988 edition Skoda have a full page ad but a lot more direct than the farmer looking wistfully into the distance.
  10. Classy though isn't he. I was a student at an FE college in 1992, £30 was a weeks rent for my room in a shared house.
  11. Autoshite.com double page spread.
  12. Some 405 content from 1992 for you.
