Wow!  Those side (and bonnet) graphics are something else - is it one of the innumerable run-out special editions they did?

903cc Fiat engine shouldn't be hard to get going again.  It's not fuel injected after all...

The side and bonnet graphics will be preserved at all costs!! They just don’t do that any more...

Ohhh a Yugo! its about time we got some hot yugo action on AS :)

im surprised there aint more them on here, but i guess in general like ladas they are pretty scarce these days with the prices probably going above what a normal shitter can normally afford sadly.

I very much look forward to seeing how you get on with this :) 

also gives me an excuse to post this magnificent picture again :mrgreen:

What country is this car from? It no longer exists.

That does look like the sort of car you'd find on the forecourt of Crazy Vaclav's Place of Automobiles and I want to know how many hectares it will do on a single tank of kerosene. In all seriousness, an excellent and thoroughly shite purchase.

These were imported into the USA. Whole sad and funny saga here:

But...I bet they are not as bad as the press made them out to be?

This is thread of the year material, right here.

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, my skills are limited and my progress always slow! :D But I’m determined to get this done without too much delay!

Yugoslavia. A good eastern bloc car!

my dad had one of these when i was a kid, he ragged the thing for all it was worth. It was top fun, a lot like the uno that replaced it, minus any modcons...he had a shitty ceramic heater because the standard heater was crap, not that the ceramic heater was any better!
