I think the Yugo was not so much ugly as just very poor quality. It was designed and built to a very low price point. Had a coworker with an inlaw who had a couple Yugos. He swapped parts to keep one running.

Zastava Motors did not know squat about competing in a open market. They thought they could get away with anything.

Questions for you car nuts:
1. How many cars have you owned since the first car?
2. How many do you own now? Separate the number in driving and non driving if applicable.

My answers:
1. I need a calculator.
2. 2 ready to drive. 4 others tagged. 22 others.
