Wherever You Go, There You Are: 1986 Yugo GV

A few years after Malcolm Bricklin made a decent amount of money importing small Subaru cars in the USA, he launched his own auto company, which made the DeLoreanesque SV-1.  The SV-1 was a cool car, but was arguably a financial failure, so Mr Bricklin went back to doing what he did best: importing cheap cars for the US economy car market.  Except for the next project he didn't find a reliable Japanese partner and instead partnered with the Serbian based Zastava Automobiles....and the rest is a punchline to every other joke.  Find this 1986 Yugo GV here on eBay bidding for $3000 with 1 day to go, located in Minnesota City, MN.

  1. That's about the nicest Yugo I have ever seen, with a white interior and a Monroney too!

    In other parts of the world they were famously tough cars,that you could drive from Kragujevac to Kilimanjaro, (google it) but american drivers apparently couldn't get to the grocery store and back
