    For those who wish to sell their used Yugo, it is said that one can double the value of the car by filling the gas tank!

    There is an urban legend about a new Yugo that had a defective window in the drivers door. When the mechanic went to repair the window, he found a note stating that the window would have been finished if the factory paid its workers more.

    That's too bad. Yugos have been one of the most versatile vehicles ever built:

    Q: What do you call a Yugo on top of a hill?

    A: A "flippen" miracle.

    Two guys in a Yugo were arrested last night in Oakland following a push-by shooting incident.

    Sorry to see them go. Read in the paper today that some dealers in the U.S. would give away a free Yugo with the purchase of a Caddilac or Oldsmobile. In safety testing in 1986 the $3300 dollar Yugo received $2800 dollars damage in low speed crash tests! they were fun to laugh at.

    They're not, it's just that no one can tell the difference between a new one and a used one!
